38:06 -Toby mentioned someone who made $3M in income and saved in taxes by routing $1M to a C-corp. that acted as a lending arm. How did he structure this? Wasn’t there an issue with accumulated earnings tax or personal holding company tax?
47:47 – If I live in one state and use my home office for a tax deduction, but have rented an apartment in another state for business purposes, can I use the apartment for a business deduction? Utilities as well?
