In fact, now we have more millionaires than ever had, largely due to the rise of the internet and globalization. But making money, or keeping your money isn't easy because the world is changing so fast that if you aren't smart enough, you might lose your wealth in a blink of an eye, that's why an average millionaire has 7 streams of income. You don't want to put all of your eggs in one basket if something goes wrong! You are doomed. So, Let's find out the different streams of income, Ordinary Income The most usual type of income which is also known as ordinary income. It includes wages, salaries, bonuses, and commissions. Its when you are directly trading your time for money. Of course, it has its own limitations since your time is always limited but that's not the only problem with this type of income. In 2018, the government (US) collected 3.3 trillion dollars in taxes. and more than half (51%) of that came from income taxes. In comparison, the corporate income tax only made 8 percent of the government's revenue. Which means people with this type of income pay most of the taxes. Another 35 percent of revenue comes from payroll taxes, which suppose to be split between you and your employer to fund social security, medicare and so on. But research has shown that employers pass their portion of the cost to workers. So, People with earned income pay 86 percent of all the taxes while billionaires pay almost nothing. In one way its the easiest form of income because you don't have to do a lot of thinking or take any risk, with some set of skills, you can find a job, that's why it's highly taxed. But it's not sustainable at all since if you lose this job, you lose your only source of income. But don't worry, in this video you will learn what type of income millionaires or billionaires have to make so much money while avoiding taxes completely. 2. Secondly, Capital Gains Capital Gains is when you buy an asset such as a stock or property and then sell it for a higher price. That profit margin is your capital gain. Let's say you buy 100 stocks for 100 dollars each, or 10 000 dollars in total, the stock price rises to 120 dollars, and you decide to cash-out (12K). So your capital gain is 2K Dollars. The tax rate is typically around 15 to 20 percent at best on capital gains on long term investment and 37 in the short term. And if you pay attention it's really popular among the millionaires not because the tax rate is just 20 percent but if you are smart about it, you can literally pay 0 tax on it. The first way one is super easy. Just don't sell, keep holding your investment, even if you make billions of dollars, you don't have to pay a dime. But that might not work for everyone, you might have to sell some of your investment to have cash on your hands. that's why there is a second way! Tax-loss harvesting! Its when you sell an investment at all a loss to reduce your tax bill. At first glance it doesn't make sense, why would you purposely lose money. Let me explain. Let's say you are a professional investor and you have multiple stocks in your portfolio. Your stock “A” increased by 300 thousand dollars which is great. But unfortunately, your stock “B” decreased by 25 percent, your 200 thousand dollars investment now worth only a 150 thousand dollars. and let's say you want to sell 50 thousand dollars of your stock A to have some cash. Ideally, you should be paying a 15 percent capital gain tax (7.5K dollars). But there is another way, sell your stock B first for 150K dollars and buy a similar investment for the same amount ($150K) to realize your loss. since you have a 50 thousand dollars of realized loss, you can deduct it from your tax bill. So if you are selling 50 thousand dollars of your stock A, you can deduct the $50K loss. Boom, your tax bill is zero! ( $50K (capital gain from stock A) - $50K (realized loss from selling stock B) x 15% ( capital gain tax) = $0) It's much more complicated than this, and I have oversimplified it and ignored a lot of details but that's the idea behind it! usually, it's not done manually but rather through a computer with a specific algorithm that makes it much easier. Investors continuously sell their bad investments and reinvest the money back into a similar asset to realizes losses because you can keep carrying them forward for the rest of your life. SO when you make a capital gain, you either dramatically lower your taxes bill or pay nothing at all. 3. dividend income but that's not the only income you get from purchasing stock. owning a stock is like owning a piece of a company, even if that means owning such a small percentage that it won't make any difference. And its understandable because companies nowadays grow to trillions of dollars. And as one of the owners, the company has to share with you its profits as a form of a dividend. However, companies usually don't pay dividends even if they make billions of dollars such as Google, Boeing or facebook, because they keep the profits within the company to reinvest it back. That's why most investors are concerned about the stock price and not the dividend. But companies like Apple do pay dividends. As of November 2018, Apple paid shareholders a dividend of 73 cents per share. That's not much, but something is better than nothing. Dividend income is taxed base on your income tax bracket, most people would fall between 12 to 24 percent. However there is still a way to avoid those taxes as well, but we will keep that for another video. 4. next, Rental Income rental income is probably everyone's favorite. You buy a property and then rent it out! It's mostly passive where you don't have to be actively involved. However, from my experience, its much more time consuming than most people think. Tenants come and go, some stay for a few months, others for a few years. Some take care of your property others don't give a damn. Some pay on time and won't get you a single problem, others are just unnecessary headaches, so it has its pros and cons. However, there is also the commercial property that you rent out to businesses which in some cases is a better idea. Theoretically you rent almost anything starting from your car to your phone. However real estate is the most common one. 5. Fifthly, Royalty Income In 1997, a guy named Jeff Bezos filed a patent, a method for ordering items online. Instead of first adding your item to your shopping cart and then clicking BUY (on amazon), You could simply click buy. it sounds so simple that no one should have patented that, but for the last 2 decades, Amazon made billions of dollars licensing this patent to companies such as Apple. That's why corporations file for a lot of patents, even if they don't need them because they could be a potential source of income. This is the real passive income. You keep getting paid after your work is done, but that also includes, writing a book, shooting a movie. This form of income is usually popular among the artist, Musicians for example usually make money by letting other people use or sell their music. 6. Interest Income It's one of the easiest and simplest ways to generate income. it's more of a passive income where you not actively involved in it. that's why the rate of return is typically much lower than other forms of investments. Its when you lend money to government, banks or corporations in a form of bonds. The bank usually takes your money and lent to someone else at a higher interest rate! it keeps collecting the payment from the borrower then pays you back your portion of the deal and pockets the rest! that's how banks make money in short! The government usually raises money in the form of issuing bonds! so when you are buying a bond, you are lending money directly to the government! 7. And finally, business income it's exactly what it means, the income you earn as a result of doing business. either by selling something or providing some kind of service. And this is probably the most important one among them all of these types of income because, with other forms of income, you can expect 5, 10 maybe 15 percent rate of return and the job is to minimize taxes but that only works when you already have some wealth, but with this form of income (business come) you can have a thousand percent return, just with a hundred bucks especially since we have this thing called the internet. Of course, having multiple sources of income is great, if one of them fails, you still have many others running, however, its also a big distraction. Manging one source of income is a full-time job, what do you think happens when you have multiple of them. So do not jump from one income to another. Put all of your efforts into mastering one them first and once you reach a level when you are earning enough to create another source of income with minimum effort, then move on! and if you give it a closer look, that's how people get rich in the first place! Just a little disclaimer, most of these things were oversimplified to make the video as short as possible but I believe it's important to understand the different types of income, this is why the rich get richer while paying minimum taxes while the middle class pays a 40 percent tax rate. give this video a thumbs up if you have found helpful! it helps the channel, and if you are new here, make sure you hit that subscribe button and the bell beside it.
