General Tax Questions
Are there any tax benefits from investing in Multifamily?
Yes. One of the distinct benefits Multifamily Real Estate Investments provide over other investment opportunities are the tax advantages. Unlike stocks and mutual funds, investing in real estate tends to make your tax bill lower, not higher. This benefit is due to how the IRS views stock market gains and the way they view real estate gains. There are multiple ways this benefits investors.
