PUMPING PEDALS, PUSHING PAC

We need to replenish our Iowa Rental Property Owners Political Action Campaign fund – the IARPO-PAC.  The 1st Session of the 87th General Assembly was a productive one for our stakeholders; the occupancy bill was passed, bringing positive results to our over six years of advocacy.

For those who benefit from HF134 the impact will be exceptionally positive.  But we have a lot more work to do on other issues.   Here is a current listing.

RAGBRAI 2017 is just around the corner – from July 23-29, 2017 – and we’re going to use the world’s largest bike touring event to rebuild our PAC fund war chest.  We need riders to participate, to attract sponsors, and we need sponsors to make PAC fund donations.

Tax Treatment of Damage or Security Deposits

Accounting is not that difficult, if you do things right!

The IRS is very (well, kind of) clear about the treatment of damage or security deposits.  The agency does not recommend the owner treat receipt of deposits as income, whether you use cash or accrual as your method of accounting.  (See Topic 414 – Rental Income & Expenses, paragraph Rental Income).

Iowa Law requires rental deposits be held in a separate account, which may be a trust account.  It’s not only a good practice it has become the law.  And, if you’re a third-party manager, it must be a trust account as is subject to audit by IREC.   But that is not our question.  The question came up, “How should the receipt of deposits be treated in the chart of accounts?”

Creative Real Estate Investing Class — Dec 10 — sold out!

We’ve been wanting to offer a high-quality, interactive class like this one — with a comprehensive student manual, PowerPoint(tm) and video, with 8-hrs of REALTOR(tm) and PHP CEU’s — for over a decade!

James Alan Smidt was our instructor.   This first offering was held at the IaREIA-ILA office, and intentionally kept small to ensure class participants would enjoy the benefits of personal interaction, and to make sure the course was a good fit for beginner to intermediate real estate investors.

While it was a tight fit in our small-ish conference room, and the first, icy snow fall of the season a bit distressing, the immediate feedback was very encouraging!
