Your employment and your employer are unrelated to your RE investments.
Increase the number of dependants on your W-4 to reflect the amount of taxes that the write-off will save you. It won’t make the IRS happy, but if you match the numbers so that you don’t owe them money you’ll be O.K. (Not a legal opinion; services of a competent professional should be sought).
