Occasionally, a taxpayer moves from his/her principal home into a new home and rents the old home out, or converts part of the home for a different purpose. Alternatively, he/she may move into one of his/her rental properties and turns it into a principal home. While this may not be an issue if the change is short term and temporary, a permanent change could give rise to a deemed disposition of the property for tax purposes. If not carefully managed, this deemed disposition can create undesirable results for these taxpayers.
