2020 has gone differently than anyone predicted—and tax regulations that affect property managers have followed suit. In an effort to stave off economic devastation in the wake of COVID-19 pandemic, Congress revised the nation’s tax laws again a few short years after the sweeping changes of 2017.

To help you understand how the latest tweaks to the tax code affect your business, we created the 2020 Tax Guide for Property Managers to walk you through what expenses you can deduct, essential tax credits you may be able to claim, and much more.

In the guide, attorney and author Stephen Fishman J.D., walks you through ways to minimize the taxes on your property management income and how to ensure you file your tax return properly and on-time. Topics and realistic examples covered include:

  • Top 10 tax deductions for property managers
  • Relevant tax credits including new COVID-related credits
  • The latest changes to IRS Form 1099 (and 1099-NEC)
  • A 2021 calendar of must-know tax dates
