Refer to depreciation tables for fourth quarter percentages.

10. Assuming she is a single person and not a married filing separately, and meets all the other rules under passive loss limitation: the AGI limitation for deduction of rental losses is $150,000 less 50% of the excess for AGI over $100,000. The calculation then is $150,000 - 140,000 x 50%) = $5,000. The allowable amount of passive activity loss would be $5,000 and the remaining $10,000 would carryover to a year in which it can be used.
