Did you know that Freddie Mac allows borrowers to use income reported on IRS Form 8825? Any income indicated on IRS Form 8825 is treated as self-employed income. Borrowers can account for this income even if they are not obligated on the commercial note. They can also use this income regardless of their ownership percentage. This is critical information for complicated business returns involving multiple entities.

What is IRS Form 8825?

IRS Form 8825 is also known as a “Rental Real Estate Income and Expenses of a Partnership or S Corporation” form. If you are a part of a partnership or S corporation, use Form 8825 to report income and expenses from rental real estate activities.

IRS Form 8825 considers gross rents as rental real estate income. Rental real estate expenses fall into the following categories:

  • Advertising
  • Travel
  • Cleaning/maintenance
  • Commissions
  • Insurance
  • Professional fees
  • Interest
  • Repairs
  • Taxes
  • Utilities
  • Wages
