Net income from rental property owned by a client is considered unearned income if the client has no specific responsibility for management of the property or capital investment. For example, when a rental agency or trustee handles
all of the management duties relating to the property and forwards the money to the client, the rental income is unearned. See PM 08-02-02-c for earned income
from rental property.
