Flip in personal name or LLC to take advantage of expenses?

4 Replies

We are looking at a live-in flip and want to make sure we're able to write off all the improvement expenses when we sell it. Is it best to have the property in an LLC or our personal names? I wasn't sure if we'd be able to deduct all the improvement expenses from our profits if it's in our own names-

No difference in what you can expense when an asset is titled to an LLC or your name. Certain flippers benefit from an S Corp. If you are living in the place, likely not ideal, but discuss strategy with your CPA.
