Putting money into a profitable business opportunity that is deemed passive by the IRS and thus benefits from tax deductions.

Passive Management

The practice of a money manager or a team of money managers making investment decisions on what securities to include in a fund or portfolio, and then leaving those securities largely unchanged for a significant period of time. To give a very simple example, an investment manager may buy every stock on the Dow Jones Industrial Average and hold them for a period of five or 10 years. Passive investment managers seek a well diversified set of securities. See also: Indexing, Active investing, Value investing.
