The very first book I read that started me on the path to become a real estate investor, was Rich Dad, Poor Dad. In that book, Robert Kiyosaki uses an analogy on how wealth is built.

Think about wealth as water and your finances are a bucket holding that water. Most people have one tap filling that bucket – their job. But they’ve got lots of holes in that bucket – bills, car payments, their mortgage, and **TAXES**. To build wealth, you’ve got to turn on as many taps as possible and close as many holes in your bucket as possible.

Improper tax planning can be one of the largest drains on your real estate investments, so join us on March 20th and lean how to pay less tax! We’ll be covering topics like:

Corporations – When should I incorporate? Should I buy in a corporation? Taxes on corporations? Active vs passive income? Business corps – using profits to invest?
Estate Planning – How do I pass my assets down to the next generation?
Taxation Best Practices – What is building depreciation and why is it important? What is eligible for interest deductibility? How do I deduct the interest of my HELOC?

It’s essential to understand these things even if you only have one property. If you’ve already accumulated a few properties, it’s even more important to correct any mistakes you’ve made. Bad planning can completely kill some investment business cases, home flipping for example, so come learn how to do things right with one of the best in the industry!
