Hi, Bill--

Thanks for getting back to me on my many questions about rentals and passive income/losses. I think part of the reason that I wasn't getting all that you said at first is that some of it applies to situations that are more complicated or at least different from my own. (And I mostly only know what to do in my own case.)

I'll read the IRS pubs again. The way I read them the first time was to just ignore all the things that didn't apply specifically to me, and to focus on the things that did. I think I'll re-read them with a view toward wider understanding.

Thanks again.
