EXACTLY WHAT YOU ARE GETTING
MEET JOHN (Your Host)
CEO - National Real Estate Insurance Group
...John Hyre takes the cake. Unless you like paying more taxes that you should, and don't care about building long-term wealth, you need this guy on your team.
John is extremely knowledgeable about taxes and being a Real Estate Investor. He is a great Speaker on the subject as well. We highly recommend John!
HOW THE TRIP WRITE-OFF WORKS
Class is from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm for each of 5 days – December 4 – 6+ 9 & 10 (the weekend of December 7 & 8 will be 100% personal time that is treated as a business time for tax purposes).
Spend the rest of each weekday and the entire weekend in Old San Juan, at the beach, in El Yunque Rainforest, at Condado restaurants & night clubs, etc.….and write off your vacation.
How does the write-off work? Any day that more than 4 hours & 1 minute are spent on business is a “business day” for tax purposes. When a trip has more business days than personal days can write off “getting there” (flight, etc.). You can also write off a hotel room and (your) meals on each business day. We are having 5 hours of class each day, so each class day is a business day. But the class ends early so you can make the most of the local attractions.
In addition: There will be no classes on the weekend – but those days are still treated as “business days” for tax purposes, so hotels & meals can still be written off for those days. Specifically, the tax law allows one to treat weekend days as “business” days if it is cheaper to stay at the destination than it is to fly home and back again for Monday classes (and it is) – even though no time is actually spent on business. And yes, I planned the class days to get exactly that result!
The Trip-to-Puerto Rico Write Off:
$1,599 per person. The seminar should involve about 23 hours of speaking time, with lots of opportunity for Q&A. It is an excellent value. Spouses & children of attendees can come for an additional $300 each. No discounts for “business partners”, sorry.
Dear Negotiators: NO EXCEPTIONS, DO NOT CALL TO HAGGLE. I am not in foreclosure, have not lost my job, and am not getting divorced. In short, I am not a “Motivated Seller”. The value offered is excellent. Google me & reviews of my workshops. They are painfully full of real-world content and are emphatically not a “sales-fest”.

Seating is limited to 50, first paid, first served.
Event will be recorded and also live-streamed for the ones who love the convenience of the interwebs.
Our speaking space is not in a hotel. As such we do not have a “block” with anyone.
I would stay in either Old San Juan or Condado – these are the closest & safest areas. They also are packed with good restaurants and are a cheap Uber (and Uber is pretty cheap in PR) from both the event space and the airport.
There are lots of Airbnb’s and boutique hotels in the area.
We can help refer you to competent tour guides. Things worth seeing or doing:
