Client Testimonials

I used Gary’s services to file my 2012 income tax return. This was my first year having an accountant do my return, as I have always done it myself using TurboTax. However, this year I had cancelled debt from my old primary residence which I was forced to convert to a rental property after relocating out of state.

While it didn’t cost me anything to do the short sale, the income tax consequence from the cancelled debt, roughly $50,000 in my case, was enough to move me from the 15% tax bracket to the 25% tax bracket.  Needless to say, I was concerned about that.

Finances were already tight and my husband and I are expecting our first child this fall. So the possibility of owing income tax was stressing me out. However, Gary was great at relieving my fears.

He is extremely knowledgeable, answered all my questions and was very thorough. I knew I was in good hands. He kept in constant contact with me throughout the process, keeping me updated on the progress of my return and letting me know what paperwork he needed to complete my filing.

In my mind, best case scenario would have been to not owe any taxes. Second best would be to only owe a little. Well, you can imagine my surprise and delight when Gary told me I was actually due a refund of a little over $2,700.00!

To top it all off, I found Gary’s fee for service to be fair, competitive and affordable; especially given the complexity of this type of return. I am so glad I did not try and go it alone this year. I am extremely pleased with Gary’s service and would recommend him highly to anyone, in fact I already have. If you have cancelled debt from a short sale or foreclosure, don’t freak out. Take a deep breath and call or email Gary. I am grateful I did.

Rental real estate CPA form 8825 Schedule E landlord taxes

Gary Bode, CPA: My extended family owns rental property. I have to stay current on Form 8825 and Schedule E or else! (910) 399-2705.

Hi, I’m Gary Bode, a CPA with a virtual office to handle your rental property tax returns and landlord tax issues wherever you live. My extended family owns rental property, so I have to keep up with ongoing issues, or else. And I better be able to explain it in plain English too, and not Financialese. But I try to distinguish our CPA through superb customer service, not just on ability and advanced credentials.

Because of the Recession I specialize in rental property cancelled debt; Form 1099-C, Cancellation of Debt, and Form 982, Reduction of Tax Attributes.

  • Form 8825. Of course we prepare the underlying IRS and State tax return as well like Forms 1120-S and Form 1065.
  • Schedule E: Generally we prepare the underlying Form 1040 too.

My experience, abilities and preparation include:

  • Years of rental property cancelled debt tax reporting.
  • Being a past Controller for a luxury construction firm with more than 30 rental property LLCs.
  • Having a niche CPA practice with an emphasis on rental real estate.
  • Ongoing continuing education on rental property tax issues.
  • Having rental real estate in my extended Family.
  • Being a residential rental manager of a 52 unit building while in college. Of course, I’ve been a renter too.
  • Our virtual office makes us easy to work with.

There are dozens of posts on this website about these IRS forms and rental property issues. Please find them through the drop boxes in the right sidebar. I think reading a few will show my ability and attitude. For a free phone consult call (910) 399-2705.
