  1. Interesting and insightful even for those of us working as self employed brokers in Europe. Thank you

  2. Wow. I did not know that possibly a portion of my mortgage, utilities etc. MAY be tax deductible for my home office. This year, 2013, is the first year I had a transaction, so I haven’t missed anything yet. Can anyone tell me of a comprehensive document that details all of the possible deductions related my realm estate business and my home office?

  3. Robert,

    Your article was referred to me by someone I trust and admire, Lauren Labas, and I must say you have authored one of the best articles I have had the pleasure of reading in a while.

    Having been in construction and construction accounting for over thirty years and working with a few realtors I strongly advise NOT doing your own tax returns.

    We provide outsourced bookkeeping services and have always used a tax preparer that specializes in preparing taxes for our industry.

    Just like there are a number of Realtors that specialize in different areas it would be advisable to find someone that specializes in tax preparation for Realtors.

    Warm Regards,
