In this episode, Brian Dooley, CPA, MBT provides a few of the tried and true trade secrets that have been used for more than half a century.
When a taxpayer wants to sell his or her principal residence, and that taxpayer is also the sole owner of a C or S corporation, selling the residence to the corporation offer three benefits.
(1) Cash may be taken out of the corporation tax-free instead of as - dividends. This is because the gain on the sale of a principal residence is excluded from income in an amount not to exceed $250,000 and $500,000 for a joint return.
(2) Assuming the corporation turns around and rents the residence, the corporation has a "cost basis" equal to the appreciated value of the house and, thus, larger depreciation expense than the taxpayer would have had if he or she held on to the house and rented it.
