Are you reasonable?

As long as you do not operate as a  partnership (partners only get a draw, fully subject to all taxes, including payroll taxes), the owners of an enterprise are expected to be paid a salary.  That’s the IRS position- the one that counts.

Pay for Performance. Really!

No Gravatar

I read an article recently about a new trend.   Ok.  They thought it was a new trend.  We’ve been doing that since the mid 70s.  But, then again, like the products and processes we’ve developed, our ideas seem to be those to be trendy in a decade or two or three.

For one, I heard about it’s parent- NARAL- the National Association for Repeal of the Abortion Laws. The other claims to be a group of unions (Working Families Party) that has electoral power- results for which I can see no evidence.

Eat up- quickly!

I’ll bet you won’t be surprised when I say I send articles to my friends and family.  But, you may be surprised to know I send them several times a day. Of course, I am positive it’s information they ABSOLUTELY have to know and have.  Well, I did that again last week.   But, this time I only sent it to my son, because I knew it could be very important to him.
