Question

Losses are not allowed for rental to a related party, so why is UltraTax CS allowing such losses?

Answer

There are two situations regarding renting to a related party that can affect the tax return differently.

UltraTax CS can correctly calculate the return in both cases. Case 1 requires no special input. Case 2 requires entry in the Vacation home fields in Screen Rent-2, if property has some fair rental days.
