OK, so maybe I should have thought of this sooner, but I guess at least I thought of it before the year is out! I heard that incorporating yourself as a realtor provides tax benefits.....but honestly, I have NO idea how to go about such a thing, who I should call (how do I find a non-weasel??), what it would cost, how it will help me, etc. etc.
Like.....if I became an S-corp, does it go back to the start of 2009? How does it work? Or is an LLC better? Who do I call to figure this out? I REALLY would like to get this taken care of before the year is out......as a writer and hopeful author (with a bona fide literary agent and everything) I have NEVER run into this conundrum......I guess if I'd actually logged some amount of income I would have thought of this sooner.
Anyway.....I live in Gainesville, FL and would LOVE if someone could direct me to someone who could help me set this up and answer my questions.
Thank you for any help you guys can provide!!
P.S. Another milestone today.....at the sales meeting today I was acknowledged as "Rookie of the Moment" or some such for logging more than $1.2million in sales so far this year....not bad considering I started in December!
