Owning Investment Real Estate through Single Member LLCs

 

Over the years, Single Member LLCs (SMLLCs) have grown in popularity among investors and business owners because under the so-called check-the-box regulations, you can generally ignore the existence of a SMLLC for federal tax purposes.  When you choose to not treat a SMLLC as a corporation for federal income tax purposes, the entity is disregarded (i.e., it’s a “nothing” for federal income tax purposes).  The federal income tax treatment of a disregarded SMLLC is relatively simple because its activities are considered to be conducted directly by the SMLLC’s sole member (owner).  For instance, when an individual uses a disregarded SMLLC to own rental real estate, the rental activity is reported on Schedule E of Form 1040.  There is no need to file a separate federal income tax return for the […]

California A.B. 150

On July 16, 2021, California enacted A.B. 150, which included the “Small Business Relief Act” providing a pass-through entity (PTE) tax election for the years 2021-2025.

What is A.B. 150?

Assembly Bill 150 is a new California law that allows partnerships, S-corporations, and LLC’s to make an election to pay state income tax at the company level and deduct the expense against federal taxable income while generating a California credit the owners can use on their individual tax return.

Why make the election?

Individual owners of PTE’s can potentially realize significant federal tax savings by getting around the $10,000 state and local tax (SALT) deduction limit enacted in 2018.

Who does it apply to?

Election eligibility is limited to a “qualified entity.” A qualified entity must satisfy two requirements: (1) it must be an entity […]

September is National Preparedness Month!

September is National Preparedness Month.  Unfortunately with hurricane season here and the ongoing threat of wildfires in some parts of the country, it is important for us to remind our clients to prepare for natural disasters and have an emergency plan in place.

All taxpayers, from individuals to organizations and businesses, should take time now to create or update their emergency plans.  This plan should include securing and duplicating essential tax and financial documents, creating lists of property, and knowing where to find information once a disaster has occurred.

Be Secure

It is best if you keep critical original documents inside waterproof containers and in a secure place.  Documents such as tax returns, birth certificates, deeds, titles, and insurance policies should also be duplicated and kept with a trusted person outside the area […]

Higher Education Tax Credits

As a new school year approaches, students are considering what classes they need to take and how much those classes will cost.  Whether it’s a community college, a trade school, a four-year university, or an advanced degree, higher education is expensive.  The good news is tax credits can help offset these costs by reducing the amount of tax someone owes.

If taxpayers, their spouses, or their dependents take post-high school coursework, they may be eligible for a tax benefit when they file their tax return next year.

Reach out to us to learn about the two credits available to help you save money on higher education.
