More About This Textbook


The Taxpayers Relief Act of 1997 will have a major impact on how real estate will be taxed. The Real Estate Investor's Tax Guide, 3rd Edition, provides trustworthy advice on issues as diverse as: the change in the capital gains tax for home sales. The $125,000 exclusion rule is out - the $500,000 exclusion rule is in, Plus there is no longer an age limitation; restored tax advantages for home offices; tax implications for home owners who declare bankruptcy - did you know this can create taxable income? and examples, easy-to-use worksheets and clear "how tos" make taking advantage of the latest tax laws a breeze.

Many real estate strategies used in the past decade, given adjustments in the tax laws, are disastrous when used today. Hoven's excellent book will help investors to profit and protect their valued real estate investments. The guide also includes the new tax laws, and addresses the impact of the Republican shift in Congress.
