Real Estate Investing offers one of the greatest paths to long-term wealth. However, one of the most important components of building that long-term wealth is often overlooked, or approached with dread & fear. Of course, I'm talking about taxes.
Today, in an effort to get past that fear & confusion, we delve into the tax benefits and reporting methods of real estate investing with Duane Culver, CPA and President of Culver CPA Group.
Duane is going to talk us through year-end tax reporting and what you should know if your are a wholesaler, flipper, rehab-er, or buy & hold investor. Duane explains terms like 'depreciation' & 'basis', the difference between investment & business income, what is a balance sheet and profit & loss statement, retirement planning & IRA's, as well as common mistakes different types of investors typically make when they fill out their tax forms.
If you're about to sit down & do your own taxes, or you have a professional prepare them, it pays to learn as much as possible about tax rules & how they apply to real estate investing. The more you understand, the more you'll be able to use tax law to your advantage, avoid mistakes, and prevent IRS audits.
