Real Estate Committee Dec. 21

December 1st, 2016

In a fix & flip versus invest world, the blurry line between dealer and investor has a major tax impact. Dave Fogel will address and update the concerns in identifying property under each status and the resulting tax consequences. In this program we will explore how courts look at intent and status.

If you have not come before (or have missed us a few months), we are a discussion group and our topic is generally based on chapters from a real estate book. Our program is designed for all levels, from beginning to advanced. We will work with West’s Real Estate Professional’s Tax Guide (Arnold/Kove), Chapter 20, this month. Please bring your copy. I will have a few photocopies for those who did not order the books (or are new or forgot).

Time: 11:45 a.m. – 1:15 p.m.
Location: Piatti Sacramento
