Course Description

Who doesn’t love paying less in taxes? 

Taxes are by far the largest expense we have in our lifetime, so why not find every possible way to reduce how much you pay legally? 

Investing in real estate can bring several tax advantages and incentives to legally lower your tax bracket.

Real estate is one of the safest and quickest ways to build wealth. It also yields the best tax-saving opportunities to accelerate your wealth even further. 

There are many reasons you might want to invest in real estate. Owning property can offer income through appreciation - when the home's value increases over time - and can be a source of passive income if you rent it out. And it's a good way to diversify your investment portfolio.

There are countless tax-saving strategies real estate investors may implement every year, not the least of which may help offset income taxes. However, not all tax-saving strategies are created equal; some are inherently more valuable than others.

This online Tax CPE course will provide real estate tax strategies including:

  • Leverage new legislative changes to your advantage 
  • Cost Segregation and the accelerated tax deductions for increasing cash flow
  • How to capitalize on Bonus Depreciation
  • Regulations for 1031 Exchanges to defer taxes
  • Energy Efficiency tax incentives

These strategies will include updates to the tax laws, audit technique guidelines, with examples and composite case studies.

Learning Objectives

  • To identify how beneficial cost segregation can be on construction, acquisitions, and renovations.
  • To identify how new QIP rules benefit taxpayers renovating their property.
  • To analyze how participants will discover multiple opportunities for using these tax strategies for real estate investment and development.

Recommended For

This CPE webinar is for CPAs, Enrolled Agents, Tax Return Preparers, and other financial professionals in the real estate industry who wants to help their clients in managing efficient Real Estate investments by providing real estate tax strategies.

    Very Good









    Garrett Polak, Accountant

    This course was extraordinary, and the written materials are invaluable. I plan to share them with the other preparers in my office. The presenters provided clear definitions and explanations for how every penny spent in connection with a rental can and should be handled on a tax return. I learned new things and will also be much better at explaining things I already knew to clients and co-workers. Really great course.


    Alan Thriffiley, EA

    Dec 11th, 2020

    The presenters were very good at clearly and thoroughly sharing important data on a topic that is very challenging even for us CPA to understand. I highly recommend this course to any and all who have tax clients who have assets on their books


    William Scharf, EA

    Jan 31st, 2021

    This webinar was very informative and current for today's accountant. The information was stated and presented clearly. The flow chart, illustrating the steps to determine if an asset is an expense or should be capitalized, is a keeper


    Marlene Baker, CPA (US)

    Jan 25th, 2021

    It was a good program. The instructor was thoughtful and made time to answer questions which I appreciated. Unfortunely, I can't use his services right now, but hopefully someday I will be in need of services like his.


    Kristina Eksten

    The instructor clearly knew what he was talking about but as a tax professional it was only minimally relevant. It was kind of hard to follow at points.
