Form 8582-CR: Passive Activity Credit Limitations

Form 8582-CR is used by non-corporate taxpayers, including individuals, to figure the amount of any passive activity credit (including any prior year un-allowed credits), and the amount of credit allowed for the current year. It also is used to make the election to increase the basis of credit property when a taxpayer disposes of his or her interest in an activity.
