What REALTORS® Need to Know About the New Tax Law
Changes to the U.S. Tax Code that potentially can save you thousands of dollars were enacted last year as part of the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act. The changes include a new deduction available to you as an independent contractor or sole proprietor for reducing your tax liability by 20 percent. How to take this deduction and apply other changes in the law are discussed in a series of video tutorials recently released by the National Association of REALTORS.
The tutorials are timely now that the year is winding down and final 2018 tax filings need to be submitted to the IRS.
The tutorials are organized into a dozen topics that affect your taxes, both as a real estate professional and as a homeowner or renter. You are encouraged to familiarize yourself with the changes and to pass along this email to your colleagues.
