Realtor, do you know what your largest annual expense is? It's not signs or marketing materials. It's not the amount you spend traveling around showing listings. As a realtor, your greatest expense will be the amount of taxes you owe annually! We have created this library to help you reduce your taxes!

All commission-earning realtors have something in common – the U.S. Tax Code considers each of you a Statutory Nonemployee. What does this mean? It means that realtors paid by commission can be treated as independent contractors by their brokers. If that's you, congratulations! You’re a business owner!

Being in business has many opportunities and an equal number of challenges. Like any ambitious business owner, you invest a great deal of time and energy creating and mastering opportunities: honing sales skills, working networks, and building your brand. But, how much have you invested in meeting a major challenge all successful Realtors face: Cutting your most significant expense – Taxes! What are you doing to keep the income you work so hard to earn?

How much do Realtors spend on taxes? Every $100 of sales commission not offset by legitimate deductions costs the average realtor $22 in federal income tax and $15 in self-employment tax. That’s $37 per $100, or 37%! And it gets worse. If you live in a state that has an income tax, they also get a cut. Depending on the state you live in, every $100 will cost you another $3 and $13 in state tax! Add federal and state tax together, and you’re giving between 40% and 50% of every $100 you earn to the government! That’s real money! Money to grow your business, pay-down your mortgage, fund your retirement, even take a well-deserved vacation!

Every $100 of sales commission not offset by legitimate deductions costs the average realtor $22 in federal income tax and $15 in self-employment tax. That’s $37 per $100, or 37%!
