About Ernie Neve

CPA and Certified Tax Coach

Do you pay too much tax? As a successful realtor, you likely have a marketing plan and even a business plan that you prepare for every year. But income taxes are likely one of your biggest expenses, so why not have a tax plan?

Coaching is very popular for realtors and can help you in your real estate business. Why not a tax coach? Tax coaching is about giving you a plan for minimizing your taxes. What should you do? When should you do it? How you should do it? Tax planning gives you two more powerful advantages. First, it is the key to your financial defenses. As a taxpayer, you have two ways to put more cash in your pocket. Financial offense is making more. Financial defense is spending less. For you, taxes will be one of your biggest expenses. So it makes sense to focus your financial defense where you spend the most.

Who am I?

My name is Ernie Neve CPA , and I specialize in working with realtors just like you. (In fact, I’m the only CPA who belongs to the MONTGOMERY COUNTY PA ASSOCIATION of REALTORS.) I’ve even attended CE classes and realtor seminars to better understand your business. But I don’t just file tax returns. I give you a proactive plan to keep more of the commissions you earn by saving you income taxes! When was the last time your tax preparer came to you and said, “I have an idea that will save you money?” If the answer is “never”, we need to meet! Most Accountants and tax preparers just record history — the history you give them. They don’t give you the simple, proactive strategies that cut your income to the absolute lowest legal amount. WE Consider this:

  • Is there a “secret” to beating the IRS — legally?
  • Is there a way to set up your realtor entity to minimize taxes? What entity choice is best?<
  • Should you hire your children or grandchildren to shift income to pay for their private schools, summer camps, sports, and college educations?
  • Can you establish a Medical Expense Reimbursement Plan to write off qualifying family medical bills as business expenses?
  • Are you maximizing deductions for meals and entertainment?
  • How can you make sure to qualify for home office deductions — and should you be afraid to claim them?
  • Should you claim the mileage allowance or actual expenses to make the most of car and truck expenses?

Is your tax preparer answering these questions? If the answer is no, you need to talk to me. I will do a free assessment of your tax returns and tax situation and find the mistakes and missed opportunities that cost you thousands, and show you how to tax plan so you benefit now and for years to come.
