I really need help with this question. I have just had my tax return done and the preparer has put down four months of rental income at fair market value for the year 2000. The problem I am having is that there was no income for 2000.The home was purchased on 22 Aug and immediately put up for rent through a realty organization.During this period I had the house painted and did other minor improvements.There were no rental opportunities during the period 1 Sept. to 31 Dec. It will however be rented effective 19 Mar 01.The tax preparer told me that I had to list some passive income so that the IRS would allow the deductions and to avoid an audit.I am not concerned about an audit as I have all my documentation.Is the preparer correct in her assumption that I must show income even though there was none?
