Welcome to iralawyer.com & hyrelegal.com!

You have found attorney John Hyre’s website. John has 19 years of experience as a tax attorney/accountant and 14 years of experience as a real estate investor. A sampling of the services I offer and my contact information are shown below.

This website is still under construction. I shall periodically add articles and other content as time permits. Business is good and I spend my days helping IRA owners, real estate investors and small business owners with tax planning and tax conflicts. Website development comes a distant second, so it will probably remain sparse and primitive for the near future.

If you have not heard me speak, here’s a download of a presentation I gave at the Equity Trust Company Conference in 2014. It should give you a feel for my qualifications and approach. You’ll also learn a bit about prohibited transactions in your IRA (Code Section 4975) and UBIT (Unrelated Business Income Tax aka “IRA Tax”). While the subject matter is dull, I am not. Enjoy!
