Mark Perlberg

Today’s episode features Mark Perlberg, a CPA who specializes in real estate tax and a certified real estate tax coach.

Important points in this episode

  • Depreciation is a non-cash expense. Accelerating depreciation means creating a loss on paper leading passive losses. The income and revenues coming on are not subjected to tax liabilities.
  • Cost segregation engineers can give investors a ball park figure or range percentage of the property that they can depreciate.
  • Cost segregation study is best done on the first year of the property. The study allows you to identify the components that depreciate faster than the real estate.
  • Ideally, one would want to use all the losses to bring down the taxable income but if not, there’s the reserved passive losses that will offset future passive income.
  • You don’t need to use your passive losses on the property that generates your income, you can use it for your other businesses.
  • Mark’s ideal partner and clients are people who resonate with him. People whom he can connect with and volley ideas with.
