Accredited Income Property Investment Specialist (AIPIS)

This episode is all about taxes, and how as a real estate investor you may be able to avoid paying them. Think of how much faster you can build your wealth if you use the 30% you would be giving to the IRS to re-invest in additional properties. The government wants us to do this. And, if you are a real estate professional who owns an investment property you should not be paying taxes. If you are paying taxes, you have the wrong CPA working for you.
