Bored, without a goal in life? Dedicating your life to a cause or wasting time? An epidemic of pointless unhappy lives grows.
Yes, a whole series of videos and articles will be showing on this platform soon, the largest library of Salvage Mining, Salvage Building, & toxin free tiny housing that no one else is focused on.
Unlike a $50,000 gift that would cost them $20,000 in taxes to officially accept and put in their name. This does not have a license, a bill of sale recorded with the government, and if the money does not go through your bank account, a barter for example, or cash payments, then it is entirely up to you to report that income if you wish and deal with IRS as you might want to given they will know nothing of the transaction. Bad Memory is forgivable, right?
Here is the first of the videos for you to share and get the help you need to do this too.
We are going to put out this short series of "How To Videos" that show some of the critical details and methodology that separate Tiny Texas Houses from all other builders in the industry of Tiny abodes. This first one is on framing the floors with beams, salvaged wood, the old fashioned way. Never build on a trailer but designed to be portable on a trailer, thus allowing for the tax loopholes which other forms of housing can not lay claim to. For example, in Texas, if the rented space is portable, under 400 SF, and you rent it out for a BnB, there is not a 15% BnB tax like there would be for a normal house or building. Likewise, it can not be taxed as Real Estate because it is not officially attached such that it can not be easily removed, and by using blackwater tanks, dumping sewage inappropriate places. You can have the tiny houses and cottages sit nearly anywhere on your property, energized with solar panels and off-grid technology. You can also plug it into AC current if you wish, just don't route running water into the house or you will need to have a septic tank, and effectively provide an argument for the tax collectors to call it fixed instead of portable. Besides that, in Texas, if you do not have running water into the house then you do not need to have a septic, you can use a composting toilet and bury your waste so as to retain the nutrients and soon hard to find fertilizer on your land instead of down the river into someone else's glass of water.
Most people do not know that 35% of your tap water or more is recycled sewage if they are pulling water supplies from the passing river as most cities do. You can depreciate a portable building over 10 years instead of the IRS rules of 28 years on a house or building attached to the land. Plus, after it is depreciated if you use it for a BnB, you can give it away, not sell it, and it will have no tax consequences to your loved one you gift it to or to you. So take a chapter from my PlayBook of Loopholology for Tiny Houses and make yourself a great life from the income that you could have using salvaged lumber, windows, and doors to create tiny organic cottages.
Once completed they could be sold, rented out, or occupied by those you want in your tiny village to help with gardens, animals, building more structures, and nurturing a community into existence that shares your perspectives and takes full advantage of all ways possible to make a good living, a great income, and pay as little in taxes as legally possible. Why not take advantage of the loopholes created by the lawmakers and tax people so that the rich can get away with not paying taxes by having the consultants that find the loopholes, use them to get richer, and forget to share them with the general public who could benefit from them too. I am doing that for you here.
Here is a great bookshelf built from Cobalt Glazed roofing tiles and trim. Want some for a great house or temple? We have 32,000 sf in stock at a better than new price in perfect condition. Give us a call and say cobalt blue for you. We can make it happen.
