Stephanie and Jon Iannotti

Iannotti Realty Solutions


Class is from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm for each of 5 days – July 15th – 17th + 20th & 21th (the weekend of July 18th & 19th 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:

  • Spend up to 13 days in Puerto Rico and write off the cost of getting there (for those who attend the conference and are part of the business paying for the trip).
  • The hotel room can be written off on business days. Separate rooms for kids cannot be written off. (unless they work in the business & attend)
  • Your meals can be deducted, the kids’ meals cannot. (unless they work in the business & attend)
  • If you are going to learn about SDIRA investing, taxes & asset protection might as well make a fun, deductible vacation out of it!


    $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”.

    The sheer quality & quantity of information will cause you to bleed from the nose & ears.  Bring a hanky.

    Seating is limited to 30, 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:

      Where is the event being held? 

      What if I can't attend live? Will it be recorded?

      Who is this workshop best suited to?

      Is the online livestream the same price as the physical event?

      Class is limited to 30

      to keep it intimate & small
