Not Your Ordinary Tax Tips for Realtors

By Eric Sachs, Former Realtor, and Breakthrough Broker Co-Founder


When the human mind is confronted with complex situations, we often find ways to ignore it or put it to the side until later, finding easier, happier, or less complex situations to spend our time on. In a sense, we “bury our heads in the sand” when it comes to life’s more complicated tasks.

For many of us, TAXES are one of these complex situations. We tell ourselves we will work on them later. We “have it covered” and hope for some magical whiz to “fix” our taxes in April. The fact of the matter is tax liability and tax “problems” often become a focal point of our business stress. Failing to plan, strategize, and manage our tax liability can be the downfall of an otherwise successful real estate business.

Doing our taxes correctly is one of those tasks that, as real estate professionals, we must find outside help. What is deductible? What is our tax bracket? How do I calculate what I owe? How do I track my expenses? How do I make sure my accountant has everything to get me the most deductions? So much to track and think about while I am working on building a successful real estate business! I will get to it later…

Building a successful real estate business includes a strong tax strategy. In addition to finding a great accountant, utilizing technology to help with everyday tax and business tracking can be a game changer. We have partnered with Realtyzam, tax software specifically for real estate pros because it is the most effective, easy-to-use, tax-specific application on the market. In our search to provide real estate pros with top-of-the-line content, strategies, and technology to help grow your business, creating an effective tax platform was not in our plan.
