I can’t fathom there being no bail out. This can’t be real.
You can’t just lose 8 billion dollars of everyone’s money and declare bankruptcy. That’s fucking absurd.
This place is going to get extremely dark. Way too many people’s lives have been irreparably ruined.
There was no way to know FTX was overspending. Unless you watched, football, basketball, baseball, probably hockey, soccer, video games, youtube videos, podcasts, social media, or really anything anywhere for the last few years.

TechnicalRoundup was sponsored by Blockfolio/FTX in the last year or so.
I didn’t expect it to blow up.
I feel awful to have lent it credibility via association — I am sorry.
I’ve been making crypto content since 2017 and will continue doing so, sponsored or not.

That is *insane*.
There you have it.
This is how real estate investors can bring in hundreds of thousands of dollars and pay little to no taxes.
You can do this too with the right qualifications & business/tax structures.
Always consult a tax strategist/CPA (I'm neither, just have good ones)
18/ You can even use it on business vehicles via the IRS 179 deduction 👇🏻
17/ Bonus depreciation is not JUST a real estate concept either.
Whether you're a freelancer, realtor, or side hustler with an LLC, you can use this for business equipment.
Buy a $1,000 laptop for business? Write that entire amount off this year instead of over 5 years.
16/ This is extremely important.
While most real estate tax advantages require you to qualify as a real estate professional (which most don't have the time for)...
This is a massive advantage for your average W-2 earner looking to offset active income & invest in STRs.
15/ Short-term rentals (<7 days on average) are considered ACTIVE income, not passive.
• You must "materially participate" by spending 500+ hours in the business OR spending 100+ hours more than anyone else
• Cannot reside in the property more than 15 days
14/ Now, most of you may feel like you don't qualify after those last two tweets, BUT many of you can still use depreciation to your advantage for:
• Equipment like software, cameras, & laptops
• Short-term rentals like Airbnbs
• Business vehicles
Let's see how:
13/ Another key thing to consider is that these "passive losses" from long-term rentals that reduce your taxes cannot be used to offset ACTIVE income like your W-2 job.
However, they can be used to offset your CAPITAL GAINS or PASSIVE income. 💸
12/ Here are some caveats for real estate deductions:
• Perform more than 50% of services in real property trades or businesses
• Perform more than 750 hours of service in real property trades or businesses
• Materially participate in each rental activity
11/ Don't have enough income to offset these losses?
• You can carry them forward into any future year or carry back up to 5 years
Missed doing this on past assets you bought?
• You can go back and use bonus depreciation to "catch up" as long as it's within the last 3 years
10/ What does this mean for taxes?
That $30,000 of taxable rental income now shows up as a $70,000 LOSS in year one ($30,000-$100,000). 💰
Not only do you avoid the tax on the rental income, but now you're deducting losses. 📉
Wait...there's still more...
9/ Let's say 25% of property items are on a 15-year or less depreciation schedule.
Property value: $500K
Depreciable value (minus land): $400K
Normal depreciation schedule: 27.5 years
Normal write-off: $14,545/yr
Now, 25% x $400K = $100,000 can be written off in year 1
8/ Now, for any item that normally has a 15-year or less depreciation schedule, you can take the ENTIRE deduction in the FIRST YEAR instead of spreading it out.
Next year, this moves back down to 80%
Let's run through that example with the $500K property we mentioned earlier...
7/ Bonus depreciation takes this a step further.
Since the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act passed in 2017, any property placed in service since then and until the end of this year can be FULLY depreciated in YEAR 1!
The plot thickens 📖
So let's break down what that means next...k
6/ What this does is pulls the tax benefits (3.64% write-off per year on residential property, for example) ahead.
Now you get larger write-offs in the earlier years of owning the property. 📝
Now here's the real kicker from the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act:
BONUS depreciation... 👇🏻
5/ Certain (non-land) items can be depreciated over shorter time frames:
• Roof 🏘️
• Wood floors
• Doors & windows 🪟
• Landscaping 🌲
The IRS has different schedules for each.
Here's a rough example of how tax savings are createe27
4/ NOW...here's where it really gets interesting.
The IRS allows you to segregate different parts of real estate and depreciate each segment on different (sometimes accelerated) schedules.
You can do this through what's called a cost segregation study 👇�Qp
