No, I would not.

I WOULD leave my current broker if the destination broker offered something really meaningful to my business. Those tax deductions must be of sufficient beneifit (five digits annually) to be considered a worthwhile subject of conversation.

In most cases, agents leave their broker simply because they are not feeling the "love," feeling unappreciated, unrecognized, no growth. For these a simply 'free copies' offer may cause the warmth to return, while they go broke.

Not a chance... there are many more important factors that should determine where we hang our licenses.

I do not think that it would be that important to change the broker. Not, definitely it would not be a 'deciding factor' for me.

No! This wouldn't influence me. I love my office and have no intention of leaving.

Not for that reason, Gladys.  Though I would consider switching brokers if I felt that I would earn more money and have more business.

Sorry Debbi, I should have said : Taxes due to IRS from your comissions?

Not sure I totally understand what you mean by "tax deductions."  If you mean that they give you benefits that are tax deductible (e.g. health insurance), that might be 1 consideration.

BUT, that seems like a minor benefit.  Regardless, in evaluating any job opportunity, you need to look at the total package and look at things AFTER tax so that you can compare apples to apples.  You should do the same thing w/ your investments - consider the costs and tax implications.  e.g. when evaluating standard retirement acct vs Roth IRA or mutual funds vs. index funds...same concept.  Same w/ rent vs. buying a house.  Same concept.  Look at the net gain.
