Tax Tuesday Episode 138: Startup S-Corp

Don’t be a fool in April! Make sure to get your tax questions answered by Toni Covey and Jeff Webb of Anderson Advisors. Submit your tax question to taxtuesday@andersonadvisors.


  • Do wholesalers of land need to pay self-employment tax? If you are wholesaling that is going to be ordinary income, so if it’s reported on your personal tax return, it’s subject to self-employment tax; instead put it in a corporate entity
  • If I run my real estate business from home, can I deduct a portion of all home expenses (i.e. property tax, utilities, and insurance)? Yes, but there are a few rules that need to be followed such as for a home office deduction and Schedule C
  • Startup S-Corp has no revenue yet. If I file taxes jointly with my spouse, any concerns? No, but make sure to file a tax return to prove profit motive
  • What is the best way to pay my children (teenagers) when they work in my business? Payroll? Cash at time of service? Year-ending 1099? To pay your children, consider what they are capable of doing and what they are going to be paid, which can be done via W-2 or 1099
