Taxes are the single biggest expense most of us will have in our lifetimes.  On average you will spend over 1/3 of all of the money you make in taxes. 

Course 3 in Does it Pencil covers three (3) aspects of taxation: 

  1. The basics of the tax code and every businessperson / investor / small business owner should know;
  2. The specifics of the tax code that apply to real estate and business investments; and
  3. How to perform basic calculations using simple worksheets.

Topics include:  

  • How different types of income are taxed
  • Progressive and regressive taxes
  • Adjusted basis
  • How to calculate tax-deductibility of interest
  • Depreciable basis and annual depreciation
  • How to calculate after-tax cash flow
  • Depreciation recapture
  • Different types of capital gains
  • The estate tax
  • … And more!

There is no prerequisite for this course. This course is not designed to make you an expert in taxes.  It is designed to give you a solid foundation to understand how taxation works and some of the tools and strategies in the tax code that can help you make tax efficient decisions and maybe save you thousands on your tax bill.
