  Register for free June 2 Taxbot webinar  

Sandy Botkin is a former IRS tax attorney and he knows the ins-and-outs of the tax code better than anyone in the business. NVR member benefit partner Taxbot, featuring Botkin, is hosting a special presentation, highlighting the top 10 deductions real estate professionals should be using right now.

This one presentation could save REALTORS thousands in taxes this year alone. The upcoming Taxbot webinar titled, "How can two people with identical incomes get two very different tax refunds?" will cover these topics and much more: 

  • Why most self-employed people "donate" an extra $10,000 to the IRS and how to make sure you get every deduction you are legally entitled to!
  • How to legally pay for your kid's hobbies, sports, video games, and even their college education-through your business-tax free!
  • The IRS approved "Healthcare Refund" that you have never heard about even though it has been in the tax code for 60+ years! This could be the easiest money you can find with average savings of almost $6,000/year for those that qualify.
  • Travel points are great... But they are worth nothing when compared to the cash savings you can get when you plan your travel so that you get bonus tax deductions!

The free Taxbot webinar will be held Wednesday, June 2 at 10 a.m. Be sure to register by clicking here.

We crunched the data to locate the metropolitan areas where homes are flying off the market at the fastest pace, as well as the ones where homes are taking the longest to sell.
