  • This is a decent and foundational read for the newer real estate investor. If you are at the stage where you own a building or two, you are beyond the book’s scope. Too much emphasis is placed on “Real Life” vignettes from “Connie”, “Jeff”, and “Bob”. Not enough is mentioned about how to get approved, what key words lenders are looking for from you to give a better rate, or what to look for in an investment property. A few tables that illustrate simple working examples such as how “flipping” and “renting” are treated differently for tax purposes are worthwhile.The first quarter of the book is primarily, and relatively, simple stuff such as forming separate entities, keeping all your receipts, and if you forget your business card and need to buy something business-related from your personal account remembering to reimburse yourself from the company, BUT not vice versa. All standard things and I understanding why the authors veered away from cliches like “piercing the corporate veil”.However, the authors would do well to mention things such as insurance (homeowner’s, flood, etc.) are more expensive when title is under a business name. Moreover, most traditional lenders (outside of hard money lenders) only lend to individuals – as in SSNs not EINs. The authors do not touch on this at all. The book, especially the first quarter, would benefit from this discussion – as in how to get a mortgage under an LLC instead of just having the rental income flow into an LLC bank account, etc. Instead, the authors get bogged down with QuickBooks (and Excel) and the bookkeeping side considerably more; they are CPAs after all!The information becomes considerably more pertinent with the “Retirement Planning” section about midway through the book. The Solo 401 (K) is introduced as a vehicle for real estate investing. Yet, another perfect opportunity to provide tips on getting a favorable rate on a new mortgage or even approval is utterly missed.Really the “meat” of the book and its value is found here on out. The authors touch on 1031 exchanges. They provide a great working example that simplifies how the 1031 exchange tax deferment works for the reader. When you want to scale your real estate investments, Solo (K)s and 1031s (I am not a fan of 1031s because 1031 means you “swap” 1 property for another) are very important tools. The same goes for the concepts of “gifting” and “inheriting” which are explained well.Ultimately, the authors introduce the concepts of Solo(K) and 1031s, but do not build on them. Instead, they elect to dedicate too much real estate to educating the reader on being vigilant and guarding against IRS audits.
  • I’ve been a CPA for 20 years, and also invest in real estate. I picked up this book as much out of curiosity as anything else. It is perhaps one of the best written books for the non-practitioner out there. If you are new to real estate investing, this is a MUST read. While you likely can’t prepare a Schedule E off the book, you will get good advice on what to discuss with your tax preparer and how best to document and look for deductions. The book is written in normal English, using stories instead of code sections. There’s not a ton of numbers, but there are a ton of useful tips and principles that anyone can follow…especially if you hate taxes. Even the experienced investor or practitioner may pick up a few tips along the way. I did. A great addition to the library.
  • I’m confused about some of the reviews here…Duh it’s for novices, but it’s also for individuals that are deep into investing that HAVE been doing their taxes wrong. Not all CPAs are created the same. The book was to provide basic knowledge and a few neat tricks to investors.It was very simply to follow, and if you had the audible, it was well paced and most importantly not boring. I usually read all my books at 1.25/1.5, so it flowed well. Definitely recommended for individuals that aren’t too savvy with taxes and would like more information so that when they visit a CPA they’d understand the lingo, but also would be better at filtering the CPAs knowledge too.The found the “real life” scenarios summed up strategies well and provided how the individual got themselves in the situation and how knowing Strategy would get them out. No complaints there.Great read 📚I’m about to start the Advanced Tax Strategy book. Hopefully it’s the same.
  • If you don’t know the basics, this is a good book.If you know the basics of depreciation and deductions, you won’t learn much.It was well written but dumbed down too much.
  • Because this is written by two CPAs with experience in real estate investing, I had higher expectations. I read it in two evenings and didn’t learn a single thing new about tax deductions as a real estate investor. The information is good but there is absolutely nothing new here and everything could be discovered with a little research on the BiggerPockets web site. If you are just starting out with real estate investing, this is probably worth the investment.
  • Easy Read.Full of information.Well thought-out.So much to take away from reading this book.Everything explained with real life examples.Awesome book that I would recommend anyone in real estate.The authors really made this book enjoyable to read and now I have a good understanding of how to think about and approach taxes. I now look forward to tax time!
  • For most experienced real estate pros, this might not be particularly enlightening, but it’s great for the budding real estate mogul looking to master the basics of tax optimization. This was a great book to read in our investor book club and helpful for our members. If you’re just starting out or just purchased a investment property, this will cover everything you need to know when it comes to taxes.
  • I really liked this book. It is very easy to read, and explains very complex tax matters in an informal way, without unnecessary detailed references back and forth. I also enjoyed reading the case studies based on real life experiences. Helps you put the impact of not understanding the tax laws in perspective.I would recommend it to anyone interested in investing in Real Estate.
  • Interessante anche se necessita di continui upgrade
  • Required for every real estate investor
  • It’s very useful book
