Choosing a Real Estate CPA Firm
Expertise to Manage the Tax Code
Real Estate investors benefit from the services of highly qualified professionals. These professionals including closing attorneys, real estate sales professionals, and qualified accounting services. While any tax preparer will report your income, firms without expertise in real estate will miss some of the tax advantages available to real estate investors. Most real estate advisors will recommend that you utilize a Real Estate CPA that has expertise in real estate.
As a real estate CPA firm, we help our investors take advantage of a variety of provisions. If your general CPA doesn’t work with real estate professionals and real estate investors, they may not help you take advantage of some of the unique advantages available to those that purchase short term rentals or help you or your spouse qualify as a real estate professional.
