RS 01803.700 Material Participation
In many parts of the country it is not unusual for a farm owner to turn the operation of the farm over to a tenant in return for rent in the form of cash or a percentage of the agricultural or horticultural commodities raised.
The income of the landlord is includable in NESE if:
there is an agreement between the landlord and the tenant which contemplates that the landlord will materially participate in the production or management of the production of the commodities; and
the landlord does materially participate.
When any one of the 4 tests described in the following sections is met, the landlord is materially participating.
