    Hi Friends

    i have a client with rental Real Estate Properties. Several have losses. However, with out grouping, they could never be a Real Estate professional and reap the full benefit of their losses.

    Do i recall correctly from lectures i have attended,  that once a group is established, a sale of a property in that group at a loss is deferred untill the entire group is disposed of?

    if i am correct, then this is a strong point to be considered.

    Any comments greatly appreciated.

    Suspended passive losses are not able to be used but I am not aware of any prohibition on use of the loss on sale – I would need to check.
