How Real Estate Syndications (Group Investments) are Taxed

Warning! Warning! That deal that looks so good may not yield the profit you want… if Uncle Sam takes half of it.

On today’s show, Kathy Fettke is interviewing Skip Swany, principal with Giese Swany LLC, Certified Public Accountants with offices in Incline Village, Nevada.

Skip will share:

  1. The benefits of investing in a real estate syndication vs investing on your own.
  2. The differences between portfolio income, investment income, passive income, ordinary income and capital gains.
  3. Comparing the tax implications of single family home rentals, multi-family, land, and commercial property.


Skip received his BS and MBA degrees from UC Berkeley and spent 5 years in San Francisco with one of the world’s largest international public accounting firms. He later built his own company, advising individuals and small business owners on tax, accounting and real estate matters as well as business structuring issues. He is a member of the California Society of Certified Public Accountants, a licensed real estate broker in California, and has been general partner for twenty-eight real estate limited partnerships, President and CEO for two real estate syndication firms and has testified as an expert witness in civil and criminal cases.
