Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
Do not shoot the messenger here but he is correct. Profit from LLC/partnership is included in your taxable income, REGARDLESS what you do with the proceeds. Because receiving a loan is not taxable (it is not included in your taxable income and/or increase your profit), repayment of the loan is not deductible (cannot be used to reduce the profit). You can only deduct the interest of the loan.
Sorry, if that's not answer you were hopping for.
