Real Estate Investing
For real estate investors, how you rent out your property can significantly impact your finances at tax time. Tax incentives, tax breaks, and tax deductions all play a role in the real estate investment game. Do you know how to make the most of your real estate investments?

If you are a real estate investor, you can get tax breaks for your financing, operating, and managing costs. Financing includes everything from interest payments on your mortgage to insurance costs to maintenance, travel, and advertising expenses. In addition, do not forget to deduct the appreciation of your real estate. You can deduct all of these expenses from your personal income when filing your tax return, although your total real estate deductions cannot be in excess of the total amount of income your receive from your real estate investment (i.e., rent).
We had heard about annuities and were investigating them for our IRAs. We also heard bad things about pushy brokers over the years. So when we went to the ImmediateAnnuities.com site we were skeptical about calling them. But whenever we called their staff was really friendly. They answered all our questions and one of their reps even told us that at our ages there was no advantage to buying the annuity with our IRAs. These guys are really honest!
