  2. I got about 17-18 minutes into the LLCs For Real Estate webinar, and it froze. The progress bar jumped to the end. When I moved it back to a point before the freeze, it would freeze again, at the same point. When I moved the progress bar to a point after the freeze, or searched to a point after the freeze, the webinar would not play.

  3. Hello Ronald,

    The file appears to be intact and the hosting provider has indicated that they had a problem that has since been corrected. I have just played the video on Internet Explorer 10, Chrome 29 and FireFox 23 and skipped through all of the sections forward and backward without issue.

  4. “Structuring” involves selecting the correct type of entity – Corporation, Limited Liability Company, Limited Partnership, etc. Obtaining the correct tax treatment for the entity – sole member, partnership, S or C elections. Once these fundamentals are determined, filing the correct state and federal forms complete the formation of the entity. We also provide the company minute book, operating agreement and certificates as well as online education and regular conference calls.

  7. After reading document: LLC for Rental Properties, we have a question on statement below:

    If the lender calls you, explain that you are doing the transfer into an LLC owned and managed by you for liability and asset protection. Explain that you are still responsible for payment of the mortgage. Generally the lender will not give you permission for the transfer, but will not proceed with the call on the loan.

    Question: Why would a lender not give us permission for this type of transfer?

  8. Hello Keeja,

    I am not certain of the reasons. This has happened to us in the past. You should communicate with your lender to verify their requirements.


  9. After viewing this video I am concerned that my entity isn’t the best one for me. I will try but may not make $35,000 this year after expenses… Also, I am flipping in other states, i.e. Michigan and possibly Florida.

    Also, after watching the 2nd video “Seven things not to do” or something like that… It stated to not commingle expenses… I have had lots of expenses in setting up my business that were purchased personally. I only recently established a company bank account. Is that an issue?

  10. I have finished listening to the first module and will listen to it again when Richard gets home to listen with me. Packed with information for sure! It was mentioned that powerpoint slides were available to be printed to facilitate note taking during the modules, but I haven’t been able to find that for the first module. Can you help me with that please?

  11. I am transferring my Rental property into my LLC., Series and wanted to use the deed/quick claim example, but could not open it. can you e-mail or send my a copy??

  12. As far as the IRS and tax breaks are concerned, there is no difference between an S LLC and an S Corporation.

    Corporations have a more complex administrative structure and have more strict formalities. The Chairman and board of directors set the business direction and elect officers (President, Secretary, Treasurer, etc.) while the shareholders elect the directors. Quarterly meetings of the directors and more frequent meetings of the officers are required.

    Limited Liability Companies have a more simple structure. The members elect the Managers (President, Secretary, Treasurer, etc.) to create and implement business direction. Only annual meetings are mandatory and it is suggested that resolutions be documented to demonstrate that you are running a business.

    Both LLCs and Corporations offer the same level of liability protection.

  14. Good Evening,

    I am looking for the information I will need to take my “next steps” with my LLC. I received the documents at the end of September. I am certain I need to file something with the IRS, and I’m sure I need to take action with the fancy book. I just don’t know what.
    Where should I look for this? I just viewed the “LLC for Real Estate v1” and “LLCs for Rental Properties”. I did not find my answers there.

    Please advise.

    Thank you,

  15. How educated we must become in this subject. I thought the reason that we hire WCAP, is so we don’t have to do this ourselves. is this just for educational purposes, or this means that we have to handle l our own matters?

  16. We cannot speak for WCAP since we were hired to do the company setup and minute book eduction. These additional modules are offered as part of our web program and reflect our own experiences.

  17. Hi there,

    I am clicking on the modules tab and attempted to watch The 10 Mistakes. It’s only providing me with clips and not full videos. How do I access the real module instead of the clips?

  18. Hi Lesley,

    The short clips are the videos – each one deals with at separate issue.

  19. Hi I have a question as far as the business license goes. Do we need to have one in order to buy a property under the LLC? If so would we then just purchase under our names and then transfer over to LLC when we have the license if we’re doing a fix and flip?

  20. My LLC is based in Queens, Ny. Would i need foreign registration, for example…. in Buffalo to purchase a property?

  21. Hi, if we have located properties we would like to do Wholesaling transactions with, how do we find investors & is the best way to contact the current owners making postcards to them? If so, we would like to verify what should go on the postcards.

    Thank you, Mark & Dianne Gibson

  22. LLC’s For Rental Properties…..”Failed Insufficient permission” I would realy like to watch this, can you help me?

  23. Good Morning,

    I am trying to find the video on transferring properties into LLc’s. I originally watched this a couple months ago, but as I am closer to purchasing a property (in my name and then transferring to LLC), I wanted to refresh my memory on it. I have searched through all of the modules and cannot find it. I believe it was a link in the “LLC’s for Real Estate” module, but most all of the links there are broken. The bring me to a page that says:


    The specified blob does not exist. RequestId:f56d3b4f-0001-0046-04a3-f05f29000000 Time:2016-08-07T11:59:31.5198379Z

    Any assistance in locating this module/information would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you,

  24. When I click on the links under “My Modules”, listed as “LLCs for Rental Properties” and “LLCs for Real Estate v1”, I get the following error messages:

    BlobNotFoundThe specified blob does not exist.

    Are these links broken?

  25. Hello Linda,

    Our Web host is changing ‘things’ – sorry for the links – they are working on it 🙁


  26. Where can I purchase the workbook that goes along with the modules for setting up the Minute Book?

  27. I was going through my LLC and noticed that it is set-up as a partnership for taxes and a form 1065 has to be filled. Can it be changed to a sole proprietorship and taxed on a schedule C? I have not been able to really find any deals, but one and I want to reduce my fees for filing and be able to write off my expenses on trying to get a business started. I don’t know if there is any benefit in it. Just want to reduce fees.

  30. I recently established two LLCs in October 2016. One LLC is just for myself as an air show consultant. The other LLC was established as a partnership with my son in law for flipping houses in New Hampshire and Maine. Both were established in the state of New Hampshire in late October. In January, I sent renewal fees to the Sec of State in New Hampshire with only my address change in New Hampshire. My big question now is what do I need to do with filing any tax forms with the Federal govt and/or with the state of New Hampshire for 2016? I have nothing to report for income or expenses for my single LLC for 2016, and we have no income to report for 2016 for our partnership LLC, but I would like to file for our prorated allowable annual expenses from the Success Path total fees of $43,000 that we paid for the two workshops in New Hampshire last year.

  31. Hello Ed,

    Great questions for your accountant.

    I believe that the single member LLC does not need any federal filings since everything is reported on your personal return. The Partnership will use a form 1065 K-1 to indicate how income / expenses are split among partners. Your accountant will be able to help categorize the expenses to maximize your benefits.
