Want to minimize taxes and keep more of your hard-earned money?  While protecting your assets from liability?  That’s what this new class from CPA Jeff Cohen is all about.   

The majority of Jeff’s clients are real estate investors, so he knows the business.  Jeff created this class to share with you the knowledge he has accumulated over years of serving those clients.  You’ll learn:

  • What type of entity is best for your business.  Limited liability company (LLC), S-corporation, C-corporation, land trust, statutory trust, self-directed IRA, or yourself personally.  It depends on your real estate investing strategy, and the implications for your taxes and liabilities are enormous. 
  • How to set up and operate the entity.  Articles of incorporation, bylaws, bank account, operating agreement — you must run your business like a business.  Jeff will dive deep to give you the details.
  • The tax differences when you’re a landlord vs. a rehabber.  Basis in property… passive vs. non-passive… “real estate professional” defined… disposition of real estate… capital gain vs. ordinary… you must know this stuff!
  • All about retirement plans and real estate.  Smart ways to handle inherited property, too.
  • The basics on basis… settlement sheets… improvements and demolition… depreciation… tangible personal property… more.
  • Rules for partnerships…  the 7 tests for general partners… participation rules… what limited partners cannot do.     
  • Rental rules… passive vs. non-passive… vacation homes… material participation.
  • Year-end tips.  How to bunch expenses… retirement contributions… credit card purchases… tax projections.
  • Types of property disposition… sale… exchange (1031)… condemnation… conversion to personal use… installment sale.
  • Answers to frequently asked questions… on 1099s… paying children… compensation issues… contractor deductions… accounting and QuickBooks.
  • Additional import issues… shifting income using trusts… tax credits… donations to charity… employee vs. independent contractor… selling contracts (wholesaling and bird-dogging).
  • Implications for the current year... cash vs accrual… profit or loss… higher or lower revenue or expenses than last year…tax bracket changes.
