What is Form 8582-CR

Form 8582-CR is a United States Internal Revenue Service (IRS) tax form titled "Passive Activity Credit Limitations." It is utilized to compute the amount of any passive activity credit carryovers that can be applied in the current tax year. If you've invested in a business or rental property and you aren't "materially participating" in the operation of these investments, you're engaged in what's known as a "passive activity." With passive activities often come specific tax credits, which is where Form 8582-CR comes into play.

When do you need Form 8582-CR

You'll typically need to fill out Form 8582-CR if:

  • You have credits (current year or carryover) from passive activities.
  • You have passive activity credit carryovers from prior years.

If you have any of these credits or carryovers, you must follow Form 8582-CR instructions to calculate and report them on your tax return accurately.
