  • How can I minimize taxes for someone with no children and no longer able to itemize  miscellaneous deductions under new tax laws? Depends on where income comes from 
  • Can you get lender financing for a property deposit from a self-directed IRA? Not likely because IRA can’t be collateral, but a 401(k) can be used
  • Are horses and their expenses tax deductible? Yes; some are also depreciable
  • What do you need to do to use the Medical 105 Plan and reimburse your medical  expenses? Corporation with plan document is required; show receipts for reimbursement  
  • What does DBA mean? Doing business as (a.k.a., Fictitious Name)
  • Should I form an LLC or Corporation for rental properties? Corporation should be your last choice; LLC is not a tax designation; put rental properties on your personal return
  • If I purchase one or more vehicles, with the intent of renting them out, should I title them in an LLC? Yes, due to liability; also have immaculate maintenance records, commercial insurance, and titled to renter’s LLC
  • Can I offset gains from rents with depreciation? Yes; rental income is offset by all your rental property expenses, including depreciation
  • Can a small, newly set up LLC buy a property? Yes, seasoning requirement isn’t required
