  • Surviving IRS Short-Term Rental Audits
    01 October 2022

    Concerned about IRS short-term rental audits? Hey, you’re not crazy to worry if you own a vacation rental.

    Short-term rentals often shelter lots of income from taxes. And regularly they save lots of tax.

    But those big savings push the IRS to look closely at tax returns that include this gambit.

    Then a couple of other things to know: Not only is it easy to fumble the short-term rental tax shelter. But the IRS finds these returns easy to audit. They can sometimes blow up your tax return with relatively little effort.

    So, let me explain the loophole first.

    Then I’ll point out the three common blunders that can cause the short-term rental strategy to fail. And suggest ways to protect your tax return.

    Short-term Rental Loophole in a Nutshell

    First, the good news: Unlike most other real estate tax shelters, the short-term rental loophole works easily. And simply.

    All taxpayers really need to qualify? First, taxpayers need to show average rental intervals of seven days or less. And, second, they must materially participate (which usually means more than a hundred hours in a year).

    Example: You own and operate a short-term rental. The rental shows large losses due to depreciation. The average rental period equals one week. As long as you and your spouse materially participate by spending more than 100 hours a year managing and maintaining the property? Bingo. You can probably use the large losses due to depreciation as deductions on your tax return. Even if the property appreciates.

    Just to make this point clear, what gets attractive about the short-term rental option? You can use the losses–assuming you qualify–to shelter other income. So your W-2. Or investment income.

    Example: You and your spouse together earn $100,000 in W-2 wages. If your return shows a deductible short-term rental loss of $75,000, your adjusted gross income equals $25,000. And probably, once you take the standard deduction, your taxable income equals zero and you owe no income taxes.

    But as noted, it’s not all good news. The bad news is, the IRS often uses three simple tricks to blow up the tax savings that stem from short-term rentals.

    The rest of this blog post quickly explains those tricks. And it identifies how you can sidestep problems with the IRS.

    IRS Short-term Rental Audits Trick #1: Disqualification Using Section 280A

    A first trick the IRS uses to disqualify a taxpayer from using the short-term rental tax shelter?

    Looking for and then finding that the personal use of a vacation property exceeds the “greater of 14 days or 10 percent of the number of days during the year the unit rents at its fair market value.”

    That personal use pushes taxpayers into treating their property as a Section 280A mixed-use dwelling unit. And Section 280A severely limits the deductions a short-term rental owner can deduct.

    In fact? For purposes of our discussion here, assume Section 280A basically limits tax deductions on a vacation propery to the rental income. Which means you don’t save any taxes with your short-term rental.

    Note: When you do the short-term rental gambit correctly, you use a chunk of tax law contained in Section 469 of the Internal Revenue Code. However, when you personally use a property, you easily lose access to Section 469 and find yourself following the rules of 280A.

    As noted, the problem is personal use of a property. And the Section 280A tax law labels three types of use as personal use:

    For purposes of this section, the taxpayer shall be deemed to have used a dwelling unit for personal purposes for a day if, for any part of such day, the unit is used—

    (A)for personal purposes by the taxpayer or any other person who has an interest in such unit, or by any member of the family (as defined in section 267(c)(4)) of the taxpayer or such other person;

    (B)by any individual who uses the unit under an arrangement which enables the taxpayer to use some other dwelling unit (whether or not a rental is charged for the use of such other unit); or

    (C)by any individual (other than an employee with respect to whose use section 119 applies), unless for such day the dwelling unit is rented for a rental which, under the facts and circumstances, is fair rental.

    The actionable insight here? In a year when you want to easily move large rental property deductions onto your tax return? Don’t personally use the property. (See “A” above.) Don’t trade the use of your property for the use of some friend’s property. (See “B” above.) Finally, don’t let some friend or family member use the property for free or for some discounted rate. (See “C” above.)

    IRS Short-term Rental Audits Trick #2: Failing Material Participation

    The next thing to pay attention to: As noted earlier, taxpayers also need to materially participate.

    Taxpayers achieve material participation in a handful of ways. The gold standard? Work more than 500 hours on the short-term rental activity. But that’s hard in most vacation rental cases.

    Fortunately, easier participation thresholds exist. If taxpayers work more than 100 hours and no person works more hours? That level of work counts as material participation.

    Note: Married taxpayers combine their participation. For example, if two spouses each work 55 hours, their material participation equals 110 hours. If no other person works more than 110 hours, they qualify.

    Another even easier threshold? If taxpayers do substantially all of the work on a short-term rental—meaning basically no one does any work—that counts as material participation.

    The predictable trick the IRS audit guide tells agents to use? Take the position that the taxpayers can’t prove someone else didn’t work more. Or at least, the taxpayers can’t convincingly prove someone else—a property manager, a leasing agent, or the cleaning service—didn’t work more.

    The actionable insight here, then? Taxpayers who want to use the “more than 100 hours” route to material participation should not only keep a great record of the time they spend. They should also keep a record of the time that their vendors spend.

    And double ditto for anyone who wants to use the “substantially all” route to material participation.

    IRS Short-term Rental Audits Trick #3: Throwing Out Hours

    A final trick to mention? And one you see recommended again and again in the IRS audit technique guide that talks about how IRS agents audit short-term rental tax returns?

    The IRS will attempt to throw out hours of material participation. Because the law says they do get to do that.

    Specifically, for example, the IRS can throw out investor-activity-type hours (studying financial statements, analyzing the property) if a taxpayer isn’t involved directly in day-to-day management. And agents can throw out any property management work you do if you hire a property manager or leasing agent. Or if you have a friend or family member help out for free and that person spends more time that you do on management stuff.

    Note: The audit technique guide even suggests agents can discard the time you spend organizing your financial records (so I guess doing your books?), doing your tax return and paying your bills. As if, apparently, taxpayers aren’t required by tax laws to do these things. And as if these things wouldn’t by themselves indicate that you’re involved in day to day management. (I know. Weird, right?)

    Another type of work you need to watch out for. Agents can throw out work they think you should have assigned to an employee or contractor. So blatantly disregarding the reality that most small investors—even high-income ones—will spend tons of time doing stuff themselves.

    Finally, agents take the position—even when courts don’t—that you can’t count travel time. (The usual rule is you can’t count commuting time. So, this one sort of makes sense. But not all travel time would be equivalent to commuting.)

    The actionable insight here then?  In a year when short-term rental property investors want to really load up a tax return with deductions? Yeah, that’d be a good year to run up the hours in some legitimate way: painting, catching up on deferred maintenance, or updating the website used for your marketing. Also absolutely do participate in day-to-day management and operations in a year where you want to make big deductions bullet-proof.

    One other thing: You may also want to dial down the work that individual vendors do. Perhaps by spreading the work around to more than one person. Having two different cleaners who each spend 75 hours a year works better than one cleaner who spends 150 hours a year.

    Final Thought

    You absolutely can get the short-term rental tax planning gambit to work well. But you want to think, from the very beginning, about how you survive and then win an IRS audit.

  • Welcome to spooky season in startups
    01 October 2022

    Welcome to Startups Weekly, a fresh human-first take on this week’s startup news and trends. To get this in your inbox, subscribe here.

    A multibillion dollar acquisition, IPO projections and some good ol’ VC and billionaire drama?

    It would be unfair to say that this week in tech and startups felt like 2021’s boom cycle; especially when you look at layoffs coming from Truepill, its fourth this year, and Meta announcing that it will freeze hiring. At the same time, it does feel like there’s a new feeling in the air. Heck, NFT marketplaces are still raising money. 

    The market is not dull, but it’s not loud; and the mood among my sources is certainly closer to spooky than it is to savage. Besides the fact that, yes, I did grow up writing poetry about fall foliage before deciding that I wanted to be a journalist, I’m saying all this to validate the nuance of this moment.

    The ideas that I’m looking toward throughout the end of the year are as follows:

    • What happened to the black swan memos? In the early innings of the economic downturn, investors turned to portfolio companies to warn of an increasingly volatile environment. That conversation hasn’t disappeared, but it has certainly gotten quieter, with many investors now telling me that there’s a super surge of financing on the way. So, what’s the new guidance that is being sent to portfolio companies?
    • What’s the human side of the layoff story? My colleagues Mary Ann and Christine gave us all an important lesson this week, which is that stories about workforce reductions should not revolve around the employer. The duo wrote about the human cost of’s layoff spree — full story here — and I’m not-so-subtly going to steal this idea. I want to talk to people impacted by tech’s 2022 layoff wave and hear what next steps look like. I hear it’s a lot more complicated than “you should’ve known your company was overhyped to begin with.”
    • Finally, what are startups preparing to actually do differently? I’m guilty of this, but we often speak about startups and tech with generalizations, slightly hedged by explaining that it’s useful for directional purposes. I want to know what startups learned this year and are tactically doing differently. Spending with more discipline or focusing on the product doesn’t count; give me specifics, and better yet, tell me what you are disagreeing with your investors on.

    Do let me know what yours are by tweeting at me or responding to this post. If you missed last week’s newsletter, read it here: “Tiger Global, fickle checks and the difficulty of acceleration.” We also recorded a companion podcast, here: “Building startups in public has an end date.”

    In today’s newsletter, we’ll talk about the beauty of pivots, a creative way to prove that your startup hires entrepreneurial people and the latest from 500 global.

    If you like this newsletter, do me a quick favor? Forward it to a friend, share it on Twitter and tag me so I can thank you for reading myself!

    A reminder that pivots work

    TC’s Rebecca Szkutak wrote about how a pivot helped HopSkipDrive win a difficult pitch to parents: Trust your kids with our ride-sharing services.

    Here’s why it’s important: As we discussed in our latest Equity podcast, sometimes we’re all just a Hop, Skip and a Drive away from success. The “Uber for X” model has been MIA for a few years now, so the story behind HopSkipDrive and its trusty partner stands out to me. Who said schools weren’t experimental!

    A different version of CVC, I guess

    News broke this week that Cloudflare gathered $1.25 billion in financing for startups that use its own platform. Well, kind of.

    Here’s why it’s important: The security, performance and reliability company didn’t raise a corporate venture fund, typical of other companies looking to breed entrepreneur attention. Instead, Cloudflare just got dozens of venture firms to offer to invest up to $1.25 billion to companies in their existing funds. It’s a little softer than a traditional investment vehicle, given that we don’t know how formal those offers of support are, and the fact that Cloudflare is not providing any funding or making any funding decisions.

    To me, the commitment just tells us that Cloudflare wants to show startups that it doesn’t just make sense to use their software, it makes cents.

    The follow-up

    I’m experimenting with a new section in Startups Weekly, where each week we follow up with an old story or trend to see what’s changed since our first look. This week, we’re following up on our conversation about accelerator and demo days with a look at how 500 Global, formerly 500 Startups, thinks about it.

    Here’s what’s new: It’s been a little over a year since accelerator 500 Startups rebranded to 500 Global in an attempt to reposition itself as a venture firm. In my latest for TechCrunch+, I spoke to Clayton Bryan, partner and head of 500 Global’s accelerator program, about how they keep up with competition. Excerpt down below!

    The investor highlighted the effectiveness of rolling admissions, which its two main accelerator competitors, Y Combinator and Techstars, don’t do. Three years ago, 500 Global said it would decide on investments all year instead of just twice yearly. Demo days will still happen biannually, but startups can choose which demo day they want to be a part of.

    “That change has really resonated with founders,” Bryan said. He compared the previous version of 500 Global to a school with an annual schedule: There are times when you’re doing homework, times when you sit back and recruit, and summer vacation. Now, it’s year-round, and he admits it’s more challenging to manage, “but at the same time, much more appreciated by the founders.”

    “I do think it makes us more competitive,” he said. “We can more frequently talk to founders and they can start our program at different points in time. They don’t have to wait for that application to open or that deadline. Whereas [with] some other programs, they might say, ‘Hey, wait for a couple more months so we’re accepting applications again.’ I think that openness and flexibility gives us a bit of an advantage.”

  • This Week in Apps: Google goes visual, Twitter copies TikTok, OG app drama
    01 October 2022

    Welcome back to This Week in Apps, the weekly TechCrunch series that recaps the latest in mobile OS news, mobile applications and the overall app economy.

    Global app spending reached $65 billion in the first half of 2022, up only slightly from the $64.4 billion during the same period in 2021, as hypergrowth fueled by the pandemic has diminished. But overall, the app economy is continuing to grow, having produced a record number of downloads and consumer spending across both the iOS and Google Play stores combined in 2021, according to the latest year-end reports. Global spending across iOS and Google Play last year was $133 billion, and consumers downloaded 143.6 billion apps.

    This Week in Apps offers a way to keep up with this fast-moving industry in one place with the latest from the world of apps, including news, updates, startup fundings, mergers and acquisitions, and much more.

    Top Stories So we’re just TikTok-ing all the things now

    The TikTok-ification of today’s web is nearly overwhelming. Already we’ve seen top social apps like Instagram, Snapchat and YouTube clone the vertical feed format in their own apps. And it seems not a day goes by when some other app announces its own TikTok-like feed has arrived. This week, it was the NBA app that added a vertical video feed of sports content, for some reason, while Twitter announced the introduction of a TikTok-inspired feed for watching videos on its app.

    It’s all starting to get a little ridiculous, isn’t it?

    Image Credits: Twitter

    Still, there’s something more going on here, it seems.

    This isn’t just about adopting a new format — as apps did when Stories became popular, for example. What’s really happening is that there’s a broader shift in how younger people are using the web, and apps are rushing to adapt. Younger users are looking for more immersive content, visual experiences and easy access to information through intuitive user interfaces that allow for fast scrolling or simple navigation.

    Throwing a TikTok feed into an app is a quick way to address these users’ unique interests, but they’re certainly not the only way.

    Google Goes Visual

    Image Credits: Google

    Google, to its credit, has identified this shift as a threat to its core business. It understands that the days when people taught themselves how to use Boolean operators to narrow search results, then clicked back and forth through dozens of blue links, are now behind us.

    At an event this week, Google introduced how it’s revamping its products as a result of these behavioral changes, starting with Google Search and Maps.

    One of the most notable updates is how Google now plans to redesign Google Search for the TikTok generation.

    Instead of starting with a list of links, some Google searches will return highly visual results, where pieces of information are presented in colorful cards alongside other imagery and videos — including both YouTube content and TikToks. For instance, if you search for a place, you might see maps and directions, weather, photos and snippets from Wikipedia all placed in boxes at the top of the search results. And all this could be interspersed with creator-based content that shows off famous landmarks, sights, tourist attractions, places to dine and other ideas.

    The changes follow Google’s recent acknowledgment that it had been losing younger users to apps like Instagram and TikTok for some types of searches. This is its attempt to bring those users back to its search engine instead.

    The idea now is that you wouldn’t just come to Google to be informed, but to also discover and be inspired — much like you do on social video apps.

    The company will cater to users’ interest in visual content in other ways as well, including with shopping searches, where it will integrate more 3D imagery, allow users to browse through “shoppable looks” where they can buy outfits, not locate individual pieces, and have their experiences customized to their own interests in terms of product categories and favorite brands.

    Meanwhile, in Google Maps the company is allowing users to explore cities in an “Immersive View” that leverages a combination of computer vision and AI technology to fuse Street View and aerial imagery together. This gives users a way to more visually explore an area, like a bird in flight, then glide down to the street level. Here, users can even go inside places, like restaurants, to get a sense of what they look like inside, layered with “busy-ness” data — so you know if the restaurant would be likely to have a table for you at that time.

    Google Maps is also updating its new Live View feature — the AR experience that overlays information atop the real world in Maps just by holding up your phone’s camera. With Live View, you can find places like shops, restaurants or ATMs highlighted over the view of the street your camera displays. And now, you can search within Live View, too.

    Another interesting feature is Neighborhood Vibe — a way for Google Maps users to get a sense of the most popular and trendy places in a given neighborhood by adding reviews, photos and videos directly atop Google Maps. (Why turn to TikTok, after all, if you can open a real maps app and watch videos there, attached to exact locations?)

    Then there’s the feature that seemingly sets the stage for an AR future — multisearch near me.

    This allows you to view items in the real world and find out where to find them nearby. For instance, you could point your phone’s camera (and maybe one day, your AR glasses) toward a dress, then find out which shops in your town carry it. This is a step beyond video-based e-commerce experiences, as seen on TikTok or YouTube, because you’re instead shopping from the real world — not a recorded version of it.

    Now, whether Google’s investments will pay off in the long term remain to be seen, of course. These are broader bets on the future of search and discovery. But at least we can say this for it — it’s not ignoring the market shifts or thinking that simply cramming a TikTok-like feed into its apps will keep it relevant.

    OG Drama

    Image Credits: Un1feed

    Hoping to cater to user demand for a more classic version of Instagram without the clutter from ads and suggested posts, a pair of developers built a customized app for viewing Instagram content, called OG App. While users may have briefly appreciated the experience of what felt like the old Instagram experience, the app’s existence was short-lived and filled with drama.

    Apparently, the company didn’t exactly have permission to use Instagram’s API the way it was doing. Because soon after the app launched, Meta took enforcement actions against the app, confirming it was in violation of its policies. Apple also then removed the app from its App Store as a result of its behavior, noting that its rules state that apps displaying content from third-party services must do so in accordance with the service’s own terms of use.

    OG App had already racked up nearly 10,000 downloads by the time of its removal, after just a couple of days of availability.

    While this particular app is no more, it does serve as a test case for consumer interest in an algorithm-free photo-sharing experience that looks and feels more like Instagram once did.

    Of course, a number of apps have entered the market hoping to capture users’ interest on that front, but have failed to gain significant traction. Among those were apps like Poparazzi, Later Cam and the ill-fated Dispo, which offer some sort of spin on analog photo-sharing — like replicating the disposable camera experience or only allowing friends to post pics of you. Then there were the apps that try to elevate photo-sharing, like Glass.

    But many users either churned out of these experiences or never joined to begin with. Instead, users found a variation on casual, social photo-sharing with the app BeReal. But its notification-based “time to post” trick still needs to prove it can be a successful draw in the long term — and that’s not a given.

    That’s why, as we said last week, now is a great time for developers to test the waters by building other privacy-focused social networking experiences — including those centered around photos.
