    I know a fairly new small business owner who doesn't write off many taxes like advertising, goods, etc. to have a larger net profit to show the bank when he got approved for a nice home. Is this even legal or is it his own stupidity paying the government more taxes. He did get approved for his home being self employed for 2 years.

    If your making some good cash and you know banks go by net not gross when your self employed that might be a good strategy to have a better chance of getting approved and a nicer home. Thoughts?

    It really depends on the individual. He can get bigger loans which can be advantageous if he wants to borrow a bigger loan at a better rate. I wouldn't mind paying thousands of dollars in extra taxes to let me get a bigger loans of tens of thousands in the end.

    Then again, I hate taking loans.

    True! I think next time I do my taxes I not going to claim much to get more net. Then go to the bank and ask for a bigger loan when I buy a home. He is not the 1st I heard doing that.

    I know a lot of people offline and online who don't deduct things to have a bigger net profit when they go for homes. Hey, if you want to get approved for a nice big house and show a big net income go for it. Get ready to pay the IRS a nice sum of money. I knew someone from the warrior forum back in the day that did this and the bank approved him for a nice size sum and guess what the home was foreclosed.
