When it comes to taxes, it’s not about how much money you make—but how much money you actually keep.
“For years, Amanda has been my personal CPA, helping me save hundreds of thousands of dollars. Now, she's showing you the exact same strategies that her clients use. This book is one that you can't afford not to own!”
—Brandon Turner, co-host of The BiggerPockets Podcast
Are you tired of working hard all year, just to lose the largest chunk of that money to the IRS? Saving on taxes means more money for you, your family, and your real estate investments. Learning tax strategies could be the easiest money you ever make!
Believe it or not, the U.S. tax system is filled with loopholes designed specifically to benefit real estate investors. In this comprehensive follow-up to The Book on Tax Strategies, bestselling authors and CPAs @Amanda Han and @Matt MacFarland bring you more strategies to slash your taxes and turn your real estate investments into a tax-saving machine.
. . . Sounds too good to be true, right? Don't take our word for it. Read the book instead! You can find it here at the BiggerPockets Bookstore.
Thanks for the heads-up, Mindy!
Has anyone read this yet? Interested to hear if it has new information. I'm sure its great, but wondering if it is worth the read if already working with a great CPA, @John Woodrich !
That's great I'll read it.
I am reading the first one. Basic stuff. Does the second book offer more than basic?
Thanks Mindy for sharing . I got the book for Christmas as a gift, I have yet to read it . I will be doing that soon !
Thank you for sharing. This is a must-read for me this year.
looks like a good read, thanks!
Hey @Iris Y Tang , this book was designed to be an advanced expansion on the first book. It covers more in-depth topics like 1031 exchanges, real estate professional status, Opportunity Zone investing, investing with retirement accounts, etc.
Hope this helps!
Hey @Karen Higgins , this definitely has more advanced material than the first book! There are some great tax-saving ideas in here that you may not have thought about before. Though I can't promise your CPA doesn't already know what's in the book, it always helps to stay educated and bring as much information as possible to your tax conversations.
Thank you! @Kaylee Pratt. It's helpful
Very cool book, it isn't boring at all, and it provides real life examples of tax deduction scenarios, 0 court cases!
Thanks @Mindy Jensen & @Kaylee Pratt. I'm going to check it out now. Looking forward to seeing some more advanced strategies, and hopefully updates since the TCJA
Looking forward to checking this book out. For those unaware, the bigger pockets podcast covered this on 2/20 when it had the authors on. Really interesting episode where they went over a lot of these strategies at a high level. I saw some comments about people already working with a CPA, and this is not intended to replace them, rather open the conversation that you can have with them.
It helps when talking to a contractor to know what you're asking for; it also helps when talking to a CPA to know what you're asking for!
damn i preordered it on Amazon last year and i'm not getting it until next week :/
@Mindy Jensen great read I just finished the book so much info good to know the facts also Mindy Jensen Love the bigger pockets money podcast awesome...
@Donald Niemi o my I didn't know there's 2 different books? I,ll for sure to get the other book cracking the code...ASAP
Anyone know a good place to find info on tax strategies for house hacking?
Tis the Season....and Oh, the tax implications are SO, SO, SO important! Not as sexy of a topic, and definitely can be confusing, but would HIGHLY recommend making notes on the things you don't understand and research them! So many good resources on BP - I listened to the podcast with the authors and took notes the WHOLE time. As a house flipper, there are WAY different rules/taxes for my business than just a straight rental (of which I have as well, just to make it complicated!). I also listened to the podcast with @Natalie Kolodij - which was a boss of an episode. Highly recommend listening to that one (again, took a ton of notes and asked my CPA tactical things she brought up). Ok, done fan-girling. Thanks for the post Mindy!
Here's the Natalie episode:
This is a good episode too for those on the FI journey - it's not up-to-date on amounts, but the basic outline is on-point:
