I am doing for this several reasons. A portion of my business is Construction. As chapter S I cannot carry losses from one year to the next. Another is I have a daughter that is going to college in a few years. With current income that I make she will be booted out of numerous of scholarships that she will qualify for. I do not mind paying for college but getting a scholarship is a good thing on the resume. I have bought 2 businesses this year. One restaurant and took over a paint and body shop this month (the loan and business and all). My income from 1999 was greatly increased from 1998. My business income from 2000 has tripled from 1999. I am trying to set the business entities according to there risk. All these businesses are consider High Risk in there own right. I am currently holding my speculation real estate in my Construction Corporation. I have set up the restaurant as a regular C Corp. I have a Mortgage Brokerage Business That I am going to get set up as a direct lender early next year. I am trying to harness the FHA/VA loans out their. In January I have two seasoned Mortgage Brokers coming to work for me. I am on track to build 40-50 homes next year. That may not be a lot but for my little company it?s a lot. I have spent the last 6 months putting a team together to run and manage certain areas of the businesses. I hope this answer?s some of your questions. Thanks for asking.
