How to write off the Family Vacation in Orlando – and Learn about SDIRA’s/401k’s, The New Tax Law, Entities & Asset Protection, and Tax Saving Strategies.


Class is from 7 am to noon for 5 days – June 25 – 29.  Spend the rest of the day with the family at Disney, Universal or the like – and write off the family vacation


How does the write-off work?  Any day where more than 4 hours & 1 minute are spent on business is a “business day”.   You can write off “getting there” (car, air, etc.).  You can also write off one hotel room and (your) meals on business days.  We are having 5 hours of class each day, so each day is a business day.  But class ends early so you can make the most of the local attractions and time with the kids.


The Vacation-to-Orlando Write Off:

  • Spend up to 9 days in Orlando and write off the cost of getting there (auto mileage even if kids are in the car, or your plane ticket but not theirs)
  • The hotel room can be written off. Separate rooms for kids cannot be written off.
  • Your meals can be deducted on your tax return, the kids’ meals cannot.
  • If you are going to learn from me, might as well make a fun, deductible family event out of it!

$1,499 per person.  Note:  I charge $400 per hour.  $1,499 would normally equal less than 4 hours of my time.  The seminar should involve about 23 hours of speaking time, with lots of opportunity for Q&A.  It is an excellent value.


Spouses & children of attendees can come for an additional $300 each.


Dear Negotiators NO EXCEPTIONS, DO NOT CALL TO HAGGLE, I WILL JUST MOCK YOU.  I am not in foreclosure, have not lost my job, and am not getting divorced.  In short, I am not a “Motivated Seller”.  The value offered is excellent.  Google me & reviews of my workshops.  They are painfully full of real-world content and are emphatically not a “sales-fest”.  The sheer quality & quantity of information will cause you to bleed from the nose & ears.  Bring a hanky.


Seating is limited to 50, first paid, first served.
