RISMedia's REAL ESTATE November 2018 53 ping is available to NAR members on all online orders. Lenovo TM frequently runs special limited-time sales, which allows NAR members to enjoy additional savings on top of regular discounts offered through NAR's REALTOR Benefits® Program. FCA US LLC (including the popu- lar Jeep® Grand Cherokee) Most real estate professionals use their vehicle extensively for business purposes. As a result, purchasing or leasing a new car or truck for busi - ness use may offer a significant tax deduction. (Consult a professional tax advisor for details on rules re - garding eligibility.) In addition to tax savings, FCA US LLC, NAR's Official Automobile Manu - facturer, offers REALTORS® and fam- ily members a $500 cash allowance on the purchase or lease of select new automobiles, which can be com - bined with other incentives for even greater savings. Additionally, REAL - TORS® receive an extensive vehicle maintenance package on the pur - chase or lease of select Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep®, Ram, FIAT®, and Alfa Romeo models. When combined, the cash allow - ance and Mopar® Vehicle Protection package, created exclusively for RE - ALTORS®, offers $1,000 in total sav- ings to REALTORS®—which is the equivalent to NAR membership dues for more than six years. Victor O. Schinnerer & Company Errors and omissions (E&O) insur- ance is another tax-deductible busi- ness expense generally claimed by real estate brokerages. Victor O. Schinnerer & Company, one of the largest and most experienced under - writing managers of specialty insur- ance programs, has partnered with NAR to provide a first-class E&O in - surance program to REALTORS®. Brokers may be able to take ad - vantage of several premium credits, as allowed by state law, including a credit for being an NAR member, holding select NAR designations, continuing education, use of stan - dard contracts, use of home war- ranties, risk management programs, etc. Additionally, a longevity credit is available after reaching the three- year, five-year and 10-year marks. Your insurance agent or broker can get you a quote in minutes by using Schinnerer's new online quoting plat - form, V 2 . Intuit® Preparing for tax season isn't al- ways easy; however, the burden can be less for brokers and agents who use QuickBooks® Self-Employed. It's one of Intuit's signature products and helps to track mileage, capture receipts and categorize expenses— which can all be accomplished from your smartphone, laptop or desktop. Intuit provides exclusive savings to NAR members on QuickBooks® Self-Employed, as well as TurboTax®, America's best-selling tax software. There's also a QuickBooks® Self- Employed/TurboTax® bundle option to help maximize savings when purchasing the products together, allowing brokers and agents to pay quarterly and year-end taxes online through a seamless integration. Intuit has developed four short and informative "tax tip" videos, spe - cifically for NAR members, which can be viewed at NAR.realtor/Realtor - Benefits/Intuit. This is an excellent and convenient way to get smart on tax deductions, including deductions on business expenses, advertising expenses, home office space, mile - age tracking, and much more before your next tax season.
