Question

Why doesn't income or loss from rental real estate activities of a real estate professional transfer to Schedule SE?

Answer

Rental activities are specifically excluded from self-employment income per section 1402(a)(1) of the code. If you would like the income or loss from these activities to transfer to Schedule SE, enter them on Schedule C or as an adjustment to self-employment income in Screen OtherTax.
