Tax Tuesday with Toby Mathis 05-11-2021

May 18, 2021

Did you happen to watch Saturday Night Live with Elon Musk? Was it a waste of time and money? Maybe you should ask Toby Mathis and Jeff Webb of Anderson Advisors to answer your questions about buying a Tesla, investing in bitcoins, and other cryptocurrencies. Submit your tax question to taxtuesday@andersonadvisors.

Highlights/Topics:

  • I would like to make my investment condo my primary residence for tax benefits upon its sale - without sleeping there 731 days over five years. Is that only a safe harbor measurement or a hard-and-fast rule? Refer to Section 121 - Capital Gains Exclusion because your primary residence is where you spend the most nights
  • How can I take profits out of an S Corp without paying a lot in taxes? If you are the 100% shareholder of the S Corp, whatever profit that S Corp has, that’s your income and you pay tax on that income, regardless of whether you take money out of that S Corp or not
  • How do you account for remodeling expenses versus maintenance expenses for a rental property? Maintenance expenses or repairs are expenses for keeping the asset at its current value; remodeling expenses are improvements such as renovations or a betterment to increase the value of the asset
  • Can an employer contribute to a profit-sharing retirement plan if there was no profit for the year? It has nothing to do with profit, but it does help to have profit to pay the contributions or create a loss
  • If my business and house are in my revocable living trust when I die, what kind of tax will my kids (the beneficiaries) have to pay on getting the business or the house? When you die, a portion of the assets in the revocable living trust go into an irrevocable trust, so your estate may pay tax, but beneficiaries will never pay tax on inheritance or gifts
