          Real Estate Professional
The concept of Tax Planning is often an overlooked means of saving hard earned income. Income and self-
employment taxes are often the biggest single expense a licensee incurs. The laws are complex, the potential
fear of an audit looms in the distance, and the tax implications of running a real estate business are not usually
on ones mind until it is time to file a tax return. Real Estate Licensees are expected to have a commitment of
professionalism and have the basic knowledge of income taxation. Learn how your income and expenses have a
direct link to how much income and self-employment taxes are due.
