1-question realted to "real estate professional". If the wife in the couple is the real estate professional--would she maintain that status filing separately? And if the properties are held as communuity property is she only entiltled to 50%? and if she only gets 50& does that 50% need to be split between husband and wife even though the husband does not qulaiofy as a real estate professional?
2-same scneario as above but let's say the wife claims HI as her resident state (non-community property state) and husband claims CA as his resident state---is he required to claim half the wife's income and
