Zen and the Art of Real Estate Investing with Jonathan Greene

042: How to Achieve Tax-Free Wealth with Tom Wheelwright


When it comes to real estate and taxes, many investors just don’t know what they’re doing. That lack of education and understanding could cost them a lot of money.

There are multiple reasons someone might have yet to learn about how taxes affect their bottom line, and sometimes, it just comes down to them not being ready. But if you are prepared to learn, knowing some simple tax rules as they apply to businesses could save you a lot of money and go a long way toward helping you continue to build wealth.

In this episode of Zen and the Art of Real Estate Investing, entrepreneur, bestselling author, Rich Dad advisor, and international tax authority Tom Wheelwright joins Jonathan to talk about how tax knowledge can put your real estate investing career on a new trajectory. His book, Tax-Free Wealth, is a bestseller, and his new book, Win-Win Wealth Strategy, is a Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestseller.

Tom explains one of the secrets to building real wealth and why the U.S. government wants you to pay fewer taxes.
