Aggressive Tax Avoidance For Real Estate Investors, 20th edition book
This book is for real estate investors, both experienced and novice, and their tax advisors: accountants, attorneys, and other real estate professionals. The taxes you pay are too high. I will show you how to make sure you aren't paying one more cent in taxes than the law requires.
Until the elections for president and GA Senator races are resolved, the binding of this book will be a comb-binding instead of the usual paperback. If Democrats get the White House and Senate, there will likely be a tax law and a new paperback edition of this book.
“…the best real estate book ever written. Not the best real estate tax book—the best real estate book.” Tom O’Dea. Editor, Real Estate Intelligence Report newsletter
It covers the big picture of legal tax avoidance, depreciation deductions, expenses, dealer property, installment sales, passive loss limitations, exchanging, how to find an aggressive tax advisor, breaking out personal property and land improvements, justifying the highest possible improvement ratio, the $250,000 per spouse homeowner long-term capital gain exclusion, home office, first-year expensing, and more.

“…excellent…highly recommended…If you were to read only one book on real estate investing and tax avoidance, be sure that it is this one.” Bob Karch, Real estate broker, El Paso, TX
I also recommend that you get my book How To Do a Delayed Exchange. Aggressive Tax Avoidance… covers exchanges but does not focus on delayed exchanges. The Delayed Exchange book actually has the document you need to do one. I did not write it. The IRS did in the form of a remarkable regulation. All I did was slightly modify their regulation so the agreement is essentially the regulation. How are they going to challenge that?
