When do you tip?

Do you tip based on the bill?  Pre-tax or post-tax?

Do you increase or decrease your tip based on service? 

What is the minimum or average tip you typically give?

This week's episode is inspired by a listener / previous guest Sue Reynolds (you can hear her episode, 248, here: https://yesnerlawpodcast.libsyn.com/when-you-cant-pay-your-mortgage-episode-248). Sue asked when and whether we tip, which is a topic we've never before discussed on the show!

How do you avoid tip shaming?  Do you tip at a fast food restaurant? Do you tip the owner when the owner provides the service to you? What is standard these days and is it based on industry - for example food service versus haircuts?  When you tip, but you've received a discount, do you tip on the pre-discount or post-discount amount?  Or do you tip a flat fee regardless of the cost? Should servers at more expensive restaurants make more in tips simply because their food is more expensive?  Should wait staff make more in tips simply because they served a table that also orders alcohol versus a table that does not?

George and Shawn discuss all of these issues, and give real life examples of when they have (or have not) tipped.

Do you enjoy paying taxes to the government?

Do you want to keep more of your profit or gain from the sale of assets?

Do you know the Tax Code Section, that has been in existence for a little more than 100 years to help (at first) farmers to defer gains on the sale of assets?

This week's guest on the Crushing Debt Podcast is Dave Foster, a nationwide qualified intermediary for 1031 exchanges. Dave has built his business around a model of education, teaching continuing education courses for Realtor associations throughout the country, as well as educational investor webinars for title companies, attorneys, and real estate brokerages. 

Dave advocates for the strategic use of defering tax gains using section 1031 of the Internal Revenue Code (the 1031 Exchange). Dave is an example of using the tax code to his advantage  over the years to position his investment portfolio to buy and live on a sailboat for 10 years raising his children.

Dave didn't start with 1031 Exchanges, but learned the hard way when the government took 40% of the profits from one of his first sales in the form of taxes.  Shawn talks to Dave about some of the benefits of using Section 1031 as an investment strategy.

You can contact Dave at Dave@The1031Investor.com or visit his website www.The1031Investor.com
