I dunno, Shirley...waiting on MTM myself. Tried to figure it out, but coming up with nothing... Jeff



A TIC is a Tenants in Common property. Where the client owns an undivided interest in a piece of real estate, commercial, rental, etc...

TICs can still defer the gain and your client is still involved in Real Estate.

You can do a search on the WEB and probably find more than enough info.

Make sure the client does the due diligence necessary to determine if this is right for them.

New business prospecting

Shirley, Saw your post almost a year ago regarding establishing your practice in the first year, and specifically prospecting new businesses. Are you still at it? If so, let me know. I started at the same time you did. New business licensees make up about 60% of my write up client base. Maybe we can help each other out.

Attitude on the Responses


Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I agree - we're here to help one another, and I think we should all be civil to one another. Can you give me some examples of what you're referring to? I'm here to help, but I need to know what's happening. If you'd like to discuss via telephone, feel free to send your contact information to and I'll be happy to call you.

Filling out a W-2 and Sole Proprietor

Yes, I have filled out a W-2 using my EIN (attached to Sole Proprietership) number vs. Social Security Number. This perfectly legal according to the IRS. In addition, when filing I did pay myself through my business account and claimed this information on my tax return. This allowed me to claim tax deductions for business related expenses.
