Romneys Have Tax Deduction With Olympic Hopes Riding on Rafalca

DressageFollowing up on my previous posts (links below):  Bloomberg, Romneys Have Tax Deduction With Olympic Hopes on Rafalca:

Rafalca, a 15-year-old mare competing in dressage at the Olympics opening today in London, will be trying to add to the U.S. medal count and Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s bottom line. Romney’s wife, Ann, who calls horses her “passion in life,” has an investment in them, including Rafalca, valued at as much as $500,000.

The couple’s tax returns classify Ann Romney’s pastime as a business that lost $77,731 in 2010, rather than a hobby, and as a passive investment instead of one they actively manage. Each of those decisions has tax consequences.
