corporations operate out of the Grumpy’s home and pay rent for office space in

properties, which have operated at a loss for the previous five years. Gary and
Greta have been using the losses from these rental properties to offset the
rental income they have been charging their corporations for operating in their
home. On their last three individual tax returns, the Grumpy’s have shown
income from the leasing office space to their C Corporations of $40,000,
$24,000 and $22,000. The losses from the rental properties have been in excess

losses from the rental properties. Please give the tax issues and your advise
