How to File Schedule E

Schedule E may be needed for your income tax return if you generate income or have a loss from renting your property, including real estate, royalties, partnerships, S corporations, estates or trusts, and residual interests in real estate mortgage investment conduits (REMICs). The most common use for Schedule E is real estate rental; if you are a landlord, this form is for you.
