If I have farm rental income on Form 4835, can I use income averaging?

Possibly.  If you're farm rental meets the following definition then you would be "considered to be engaged in Leasing land to a tenant engaged in a farming business, but only if the lease payments are 

  • (a) based on a share of the tenant's production (not a fixed amount), and 
  • (b) determined under a written agreement entered into before the tenant begins significant activities on the land."

If you meet the above qualifications then yes you would be able to use income averaging.  If not, then you cannot use it.
