An LLC Doesn’t Make You Bulletproof & Tons More Tax and Entity Advice


Taxes. IRS. Audits…

Does the very sight of these words give you the creeps?

Trusts. Entities. S-Corps…

Are you breaking out into a cold sweat right now?

I get it. Details about taxes and entities can be confusing, complex, overwhelming and downright scary. Well, good thing we’re here to swoop in and make some sense of all of this in easy-to-understand, digestible info.

And by ‘we,’ I mean attorney, accountant and strategist John Hyre.

John is the guy with all the answers, friends… and, he should know it all, with 19 years of experience as a tax attorney and accountant, plus 14 years as a real estate investor. BAM! Expert in the house.

Not only is John a trusted advisor and friend of mine for over a decade now, but he’s assisted thousands of clients nationwide, from newbies to commercial operations. And, based on his extensive real-world audit and tax court experience, he wrote two fantastic investor resources: KISS Guide to Entities & Asset Protection and KISS Guide to Bookkeeping. (Do yourself a solid and check those out, pronto!)

John’s kicks off this video session with a top-notch presentation about all things taxes and how they relate to your investing business including non-entity asset protection as well as entity asset protection, audits and record-keeping.

As you’ll hear John explain, corporations, LLCs, trusts are important to protect yourself and your business, but most people (investors included) are looking at them with the wrong perspective. He says you should be spending more time on how to not get sued to begin with and how to win if you do!

John also tell us why he advises his clients to ‘Be British;’ helpful resources that provide tenant-landlord legal guides; the #1 reason why people sue in the first place; why a case settling doesn’t help you; and so much more…

Plus, after John’s insightful presentation, we opened up the floor for a rapid-fire Q&A session.
