Southbourne Tax Group Review: How to reduce your tax-time burden as a property investor

 

Submitting your tax returns properly and correctly is crucial as a property investor. Southbourne Tax Group, as a company committed to giving help to people with their taxes, prepared the following simple tax tips to provide property investors some guidance in handling their taxes.

 

Having completed and appropriate returns are really important because when submitting tax returns, landlords usually come under inspection. One of the things that Southbourne Tax Group needs you to do is to consult your accountant to identify what can and cannot be claimed as a tax-deductible expense. This way, you can make sure that all claims are legitimate and the tax return amount is maximized.

 

Getting the professional service and advice from a tax specialist will make your taxes easier as well. Southbourne Tax Group suggests continuing reading to learn more tax tips.

 

First, in order to reduce the tax payable, offsetting the net loss generated by negative gearing against other income is suggested. As a landlord, you can claim the interest if a property is available for rent, but you can’t claim the interest for the full 12 months if that is lived for half a year and then leased as a holiday rental for the other half.

 

Second, it is important to ensure having the right coverage in checking your insurance policy. Experts also said that landlords won’t be covered for certain risks included in property investing with a standard home and contents insurance policy.

 

Third, do not forget to claim the costs that you are rightfully entitled to, said Southbourne Tax Group. As said earlier, it is really important to discuss and confirm with your accountant first on what can and cannot be claimed before submitting your claim.

 

Fourth, you can claim the costs of working from home if you are one of those self-managing landlords. However, not all costs can be claimed such as buying a computer and the monthly internet bills, but a fair amount of this can be deductible.

 

Lastly, hiring a property manager and the costs involved in it can be a deductible expense too, plus they can be very helpful to you. Hiring a property manager can help you save time because they can create a potential tax benefit while also assisting with the organization at the same time.

 

Getting the services of a trusted property manager can help reduce your burden during tax time since they can take good care of the administrative responsibilities involved in an investment property, along with compiling and completing important paperwork.

 

Reducing your tax-time burden could include different factors and some of which were discussed in this post. Southbourne Tax Group can provide a helping hand if you need more tips or advice, just give them a call today and witness their professional tax service.

#24in48 Read-a-thon Check In #2
Persepolis I & II - Marjane Satrapi
A Walk in the Woods - Bill Bryson
How to Train Your Dragon - Cressida Cowell
Naked in Death - J.D. Robb
Food: A Love Story - Jim Gaffigan

Six hour mark and finished The Complete Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi. I'll write reviews after the read-a-thon, but suffice to say that I want to buy a million copies of this book and just hand it out randomly. Such a great work.

 

I had twenty minutes left of my 3 hour block of reading that I knocked out chapter 3 of A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson (I read chapters one and two yesterday). I like it so far, but it doesn't live up to the hype.

 

Whenever my darling son and daughter manage to clean up their rooms, my next order of read-a-thon business to set aside my personal reading and read to them. We borrowed a copy of one of the Wimpy Kid books and a couple of Pokémon graphic novels from the library. Once the darlings of my life are safely tucked in for the night, I am going to dive into A Sultry Love Song by Kianna Alexander.

 

Hour Twelve Question: 1) which three audiobooks you’d recommend for a roadtrip and why, OR 2) if you could take a roadtrip to any three bookish locations, what would they be?

 

I would choose option one. First audiobook would be one for the entire family, so I would choose the first How To Train Your Dragon book. Second, for when the kids are fast asleep (just like their mom, car trips make them drowsy), would be Naked in Death so that my husband would finally give ...In Death series a shot. The last one would be Jim Gaffigan's Food: A Love Story which is tame enough for the kids but funny enough for the adults.

 

More from me at hour 9.

How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf by Molly Harper
How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf - Molly Harper,Amanda Ronconi

This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books.

I could kick myself. I bought this audiobook back in 2015. Heck, I bought the whole series and then promptly got distracted by some other shiny book. I have seen so many great reviews for this book but did I start listening. Nope. Because I was distracted. Well, I finally dusted it off and started listening to it earlier this week and had a great time with it. 

Mo is the focus of this story and I liked her character right away. The book opens with Mo moving to Alaska. It is a big change from what she is used to in Mississippi but she needs a change. And she needs to get away from her over the top parents. Her parents are quite the pair and I can completely understand why she took such a drastic step. 

Mo quickly becomes a part of the local community by working at the local bar and grill. She is making friends and finding her way. She is even getting the attention of a couple of the local men. Enter Cooper, local werewolf extraordinaire. Cooper always seems a little grouchy but Mo can't seem to stay away. One thing leads to another and they decide to act on their chemistry. 

There were so many things to love about this book. I really liked the humor woven into the story. I had a big grin on my face the entire time I was listening to this story. I liked Mo and Cooper as a couple and thought they had great chemistry. The story had a lot of things going on besides the romance with a wolf attacking the local community and some drama with Cooper's family. 

I really enjoyed Amanda Ronconi's narration. I thought she captured Mo's personality very well through her narration. She handled all of the different characters very well and it was always very easy to tell who was speaking. This story has a wide range of emotions and she portrayed them all very well. I felt Mo's fear, her joy, her confusion, and her frustration. She read the story at a very natural pace and I really just felt like she was telling me a story. I was able to listen to this book for hours at a time and look forward to listening to more of her work in the future.

I would recommend this book to fans of paranormal romance. This was a fun story filled with great chemistry and a wonderful sense of humor. This is the first book by Molly Harper that I have read and I cannot wait to continue with this series.

Initial Thoughts
This was fun. There were quite a few funny moments and I really enjoyed Mo's sense of humor. The narration was great and I look forward to listening to more of this series very soon.
