This does indeed apply to our LLC (not real estate related). I clicked on the website and saw there was a 30 page instruction/info booklet and I clicked off. Thanks for the reminder to look into it.

Thanks Fred Griffin Florida Real Estate for the alert. I'm not sure it pertains to me? Vision Drive Realty, Inc. is an S-Corp. So it seems this doesn't apply to me, but if it does, my lawyer handles my annual business, my CPA checks in with me 3 times per year prior to our October filing...so I'll be covered.

It is interesting to note that behind every rule, regulation, law or statute is the reason why they were created. Makes you wonder about some of these

I wonder if this will cut down on the number of criminals avoiding paying their taxes, though I suspect that the bad actors will find a way around this.

Selling Homes Changing Lives

Fred Griffin Florida Real Estate - Although it doesn't pertain to me, I attended LEGAL UPDATES on 1/11/24, a 2 hour CE taught by General Counsel, TX Real Estate Commission, and General Counsel, Texas REALTORS. Here is what I learned about the Legislative Changes effective 1/1/24:

Wholesaling: 1) Wholesalers are required to disclose their interest in a property in writing to both buyers & seler; 2) Failure to do so under Chapter 1101 constitutes unlicensed activity, meaning TREC (TX Real Estate Commision) has jurisdiction to enforce against. 

Business Entity Registration: 1) Can regisiser certain LLCs and S-Corps with TREC to receive compensation; 2) Must be at least 51% owned by the license holder on whose behalf the entity receives compensation; 3) No other brokerage activity. (e.g., advertising).

I hope this helps.

Not anymore for us, thankfully.  But if it did I'd let the professionals handle it for us.  I do believe it was you that first started mentioning this subject......and I'm glad you did.

We've had to do that for years now.  The LA region was in the second wave of FinCen after Miami.  We've had to report this with every transaction our flipping company has done.
