Hi Bill,

Are you saying that you, yourself, are under a lease/option agreement now? I need more details.

Another one,
Flipping may be a good way to increase cash, but what are some tax benefits of flipping?

As far as I’m concerned, I do believe there are no tax benefits. Since you are merely receiving cash proceeds and not a house for keeps, then it would be similar to earned income. Although the government doesn’t take it out right away, at least have a bookkeeper keep track of your finances so when tax time does come around, you don’t forget. But there are ways to move your proceeds into a tax-free shelter such as a Roth IRA. One that comes to mind is Mid-Ohio Securities. I’m not an expert on IRAs so consult with a tax accountant with experience handling that.

How do you flip a property if you lease option (seller owns the home) and you want to fix it up and sell it within 1-2 months?
