Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Delves deeply into the complex thicket of available deductions, with real-life examples on deducting everything.” Accounting Today

“For more information on how to handle inventory and write off the cost of goods, see…Deduct It! Lower Your Small Business Taxes.” San Francisco Chronicle

“Outlines the many deductions available to small businesses—in plain English.” National Federation of Independent Business

"There should be a law requiring every landlord to read this great book. It simplifies the complicated, makes boring tax laws interesting, and offers landlords the major financial incentive of saving tax dollars.... On my scale of one to 10, this outstanding book rates an off-the-chart 12." Bob Bruss, nationally syndicated columnist

"The best of the best.... heavily emphasizes maximizing depreciation deductions." Chicago Tribune

    A valuable book that every landlord should have!

    As a legal writer and an attorney with experience in government and private practice, Stephen Fishman has authored many legal books, including "Every Landlord's Tax Deduction Guide." "Every Landlord's Tax Deduction Guide" is a very comprehensive book, covers subjects such as tax deduction basics, landlord tax classifications, operating expense, repairs, depreciation, interest, star-up expenses, home office deduction, car and local expenses, travel expenses, hiring help, casualty and theft losses, vacation homes, rental loss, record keeping and accounting, schedule E, claiming tax deduction for prior years, and additional resources. "Every Landlord's Tax Deduction Guide" is also a very detailed book. For example, most landlords know about home office deduction, but they may not know that you can use either the Square Footage Method (excluding the common area) or Room Method to claim the home office deduction. You can choose the method that is best for you, the landlord and tax payer, and it is legal. In the example cited in the book, the difference can be between 12.5% (or 14% when excluding the common area) and 16.7% for home office percentage. In this case, knowledge is power, and it empowers you to save money by claiming a bigger share of the home office deduction if you know how. "Every Landlord's Tax Deduction Guide" has 548 pages. It is a valuable book that every landlord should have! Gang Chen, AIA, LEED AP BD+C, Author of "LEED GA Exam Guide," "Architectural Practice Simplified," "Planting Design Illustrated," and other books on various LEED exams, Scribus, architecture, and landscape architecture
