QBI passive loss error

How do I fix this error? I put -17208 in the regular tax column and error went away, but I don't think that's correct.  -17208 came from 2022.  The difference between regular tax and QBI.  So I need the regular tax number??

QBI passive loss error

Yes. A QBI loss is generated when SCh E has a loss. You have an entry for QBI showing with no entry for Sch E loss showing.

 

Look at form 8582, page 2, part VII. You see a line item there. The first column shows name of activity and the second column shows form or schedule.

If you have first column, second column, last column:

  • Rental, schedule E, unallowed loss - put that number in your Sch E regular tax carryover box
  • Rental, Form 6251  (the AMT form), unallowed loss - that would be the AMT number to use.
  • Rental, Form 8995, unallowed loss - that is the number for QBI carryover

 

You may not have any or all of these lines. You may not have any carryover. If you form is blank like the one shown here, there is nothing to enter. I suspect you at least have an entry for regular carryover and maybe QBI exists as well.

QBI passive loss error

Form 8995 shows my loss for this year.  Form 8582 is blank.  It is unclear which number to use in form 6251.

OK, finally figured it out.  I went to rental properties, under property profile I hit update and said Yes to I have passive activity... under Carryovers.  I entered data found in:

 

Form 8582 Part VII (a) Loss in 2022 taxes and enter the allocation of Unallowed Losses in the Passive Losses from prior Years as regular Tax Carryover.  In the AMT carryover I subtracted 80 from my regular tax loss which I found in form 6251 of 2022 taxes.  QBI carried over from 2022.  

 

I hope this is now accurate. 

 

I was disappointed, I actually called Turbo Tax and they were no help at all with this.

Let me know if my thinking is not correct before I finish and file.

It sounds great. It took me a couple or re-reads and then it clicked why you were subtracting 80. Great job! File and have a great year!

Thank you

Thanks! This worked.

My 8582 p1 had a value. I inserted that value as a negative on the regular tax carryover box and the error went away.
