The Dentist Freedom Blueprint Podcast

This is the second part of my conversation with Marcus Crigler, founder and CEO of BEC CFO. This episode is can be listened to on its own, but I still recommend that you check out our previous episode because it has some great information. In this second part of the conversation, we focus on the differences between active and passive real estate investors, as well as the implications that has on your taxes.

I see a lot of confusion out there about who gets the tax benefits and how they work, so Marcus will be helping to clear that up for us. He will also be giving some great insight into what happens to those who can’t take the tax benefits today, what happens with losses when you are a passive investor, and much more. You will learn how to use your income and losses to work for you and get the best benefits from your investments.
