I’ve downloaded it and have had it for just over a year and my payout (by cheque, mailed to my home) has been $46.85. The cheque comes very promptly. I’d say it’s pretty passive. In fact, I actually like going through my grocery receipts to check out if there’s anything I can claim with Checkout 51. I know $46.85 is nothing to write home about but it’s still better than $0!!
2. This article isn’t intended to be about making $50k per year from $0 to start with. This is intended to show different ways that it’s possible to generate $50k in passive income. As for your rental property comment, check out RealtyShares or other similar companies. You can be a rental property owner without having to run the business. You can be a limited partner and just invest in real estate, and leave the actual work to the general partner. Basically, there are options to make $50k without working, but like the first paragraph says – front load your life!
What are the best passive income ideas?
The United States Internal Revenue Service categorizes income as active income, passive income, or portfolio income. It defines passive income as only coming from two sources, or "passive activities": rental activity or "trade or business activities in which you do not materially participate." Other financial and government institutions also recognize it as an income obtained as a result of capital growth or in relation to negative gearing. Passive income is usually taxable.
