I recently read Rich Weese's blog, which had a very interesting post about taxes being one of the greatest wealth eliminators. I completely agree with Rich, and thought some of his deductions were very creative. I think a lot of newer investors, like myself, are not aware of or are afraid to take certain tax deductions. I also feel that many CPA's out there will not push the envelope when it comes to this area. I would like to hear 'legal', non-mainstream deductions or tax saving ideas everyone has used.
