Tackling Tax Season

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - Tax season is upon us! To be sure agents are getting everything out of their business, correctly doing their taxes could mean more money in their pocket! Here are some things for real estate professionals to consider when filing according to My Home Group Power Partner, The CE Shop. April, 15th, 2021 is the tax deadline to file. It is possible to file for an extension with a deadline later this year (Oct. 15). As the countdown begins, it is imperative for agents to compile all the necessary documents, receipts, etc. to properly file before the deadline.  Almost all agents are considered to be independent contractors and are required to pay self-employment tax as a result. This is in addition to your federal, state and local income taxes, so be sure to file accordingly and keep track of incomes. It is beneficial to prepare yourself for tax season if you set aside 20-30 percent of each commission for taxes. Since commissions are not taxed when you receive your check, you will be taxed on these incomes when you file each year. Prepare Your Expenses Create a filing system to keep up with your expenses throughout the year…

TO RENT OR TO BUY?

Recapping the year in real estate – 2020

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - Despite the laundry list of businesses that were shut down, or operating at smaller capacities in 2020, the real estate market proved to be a roller coaster this past year according to The CE Shop’s video on Top 10 Real Estate Facts of 2020, outlined below.  During the pandemic, the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) labeled most real estate agents as essential workers, paving the way for some agents to switch to full-time real estate. Not only did agents devote more time to their real estate business, but it also increased the home index while the mortgage rates fell causing a boom in the business. As the home values increased to roughly 6.6 percent, agents quickly took advantage of the opportunity to help buyers and sellers fulfill their relocation needs.  Not only was business booming, but the CE Shop stated that word-of-mouth recommendations were at an all-time high as the influx of people moving into the Arizona area increased. About 41 percent of buyers found their real estate agent through a personal recommendation. However, it may be seen as a challenge for newly-licensed agents. At the beginning of the year as businesses began to shut down, there…
