UPDATED: How Congress is About to Shut Down Your Business (and what you can do about it) with John Hyre


Tax attorney John Hyre has posted an Oct. 28th update:

Democratic Anti-SDIRA/401k Proposals Are Dead: Per the American Society of Pension Professionals & Actuaries, ALL of the IRA & 401k provisions have been dropped from the reconciliation bill. Source.

Good news! Earlier...

Hyre lays out all the reasons why investors must write letters to their representatives in Congress to protest proposed "Build Back Better" legislation that would gut investors' ability to invest in real estate using their self-directed IRAs. It could also cause a forced distribution.

John gave a presentation to Vena Jones-Cox's Ohio REIA, which you can watch above, and he has shared his slideshow with us. Vena has also shared a document explaining why this legislation should not be passed — and you can borrow from it in order to write your own representative.

Supreme Court Blocks Eviction Moratorium


Supreme Court. Photo from Pixabay.comIn a decision late Thursday evening, August 26, the U.S. Supreme Court blocked the CDC from enforcing a federal moratorium on evictions that was recently reinstated by the Biden Administration.

CNBC said called it a defeat for the Biden administration’s efforts to continue the eviction moratorium despite an earlier signal from the court that the government lacked the proper legal basis.

According to the The Wall Street Journal, in the unsigned opinion, the court’s conservative majority said the temporary eviction ban exceeded the CDC’s authority to combat communicable diseases, forcing landlords to bear the pandemic’s costs.

April 2021 Full Meeting Replay: Rehabbing for Investors


Rehabbing for InvestorsStacey Duvall, Wendy Kays and Jacqueline Smith team up to give us perspectives on rehabbing. All three women are successful rehabbers, and they each approach it from a slightly different angle.

Stacey is a broker, agent, housing provider, interior designer and Airbnb owner who rehabs to hold. In this meeting she gives us an overview of rehabbing and talks about where to source deals.

Wendy is VP of operations at MM Lending, so she works closely with rehabbers who get funding from her company. Wendy is also a rehabber and housing provider on her own. She covers what to expect when you approach lenders for funding on your own projects.

Jacqueline Smith, as a project manager for turnkey rental company Freedom Property Group, juggles multiple rehab projects at a time. In this meeting she shows us some of the tools she uses to manage those rehabs. She also fixes and flips her own properties and is building a rental portfolio.

In the early meeting, Rob Bergeron of The Louisville Network talks about how wholesalers can offload some of the administrative work to his company. Rob, also a real estate agent, analyzes our current market. For the member orientation segment, Stacey and Jordan Pohn describe the advantages of joining KREIA.

In all you'll find 2½ hours of real estate instruction, real estate talk and Q&A. Watch this members-only video. (You'll need to be logged in as an active KREIA member to see it.)
