Rental loss, Financial Accounting

Jane makes a living renting expensive state of the art surveillance equipment to detectives and nervous spouses. Her average rental period is 27 days. The rental price includes all the technical help the user requires. Her people frequently help set up the equipment and are willing to help the customer in any way. The IRS should classify this activity as "not a rental activity" for the purposes of the passive activity rules.
