Best Rental Property Books
If you are looking for a great source on information on taxes and rental properties, I have some recommendations for you. I have just finished reading both of these books and between the 2 of them I feel they have answered all my tax questions regarding my rental property and then some.
Every Landlords Tax Deduction Guide
By Stephen Fishman, Nolo Books
This was the best book I have found yet to give a great, practical end to end guide of taxes and rental properties. This book answered 95% of all the questions I had during my tax preparation regarding my rental property. It was full of examples that I found especially useful. The perfect all purpose book.
Aggressive Tax Avoidance for Real Estate Investors
By John T Reed, Self-Published
I actually read this book 1st and was disappointed. After reading Every Landlord's Tax Deduction Guide, I reread this book and felt it was a great compliment. I realized that this book is definitely tailored to someone who is already familiar with the ins and outs of taxes and rental properties. The real value of this book is giving you perspective in what can and can not be written off from a rental property. I personally loved a decision tree documented by the author that shows the net present value of a judgmental area in an example tax preparation for a rental property (guess that's the engineer in me).
