Q. If I am 1% partner in a business, how would it impact my taxes or other financial profile
A: It depends on the corporate structure and jurisdiction. It'll also depend on your other income. You'll most likely have additional reporting requirements personally. You're best off finding a tax expert to advise you on this.
Q. Someone stole my business name. What can I do?
A: Hire an attorney to review the alleged infringement and if you are correct send out a C&D letter. If that doesn't work then you sue them for infringement.
Q. If you lie on the WOTC about being unemployed, does that count as tax fraud?
A: Yes
Q. Is it legal for the state of California to collect excise tax on cannabis. Aren't banks FDIC insured?
A: Yes. Yes. Once you pay the tax to the state it's not weed money anymore.
Q. H&r block knowingly misfiled my taxes in 2015 and did not honor their guarantee. Can I sue them?
A: They do that a lot. You absolutely can file a suit. This is a situation where your damages are likely much less than the cost of the suit. You can't claim the tax as damages. Without knowing all the details I can't give you a definite answer.
Q. Do I need to pay taxes when transferring money from my foreign bank account to my American account?
A: Any transfer over $10,000 US is reported by the bank but is not taxed. You don't report it on your personal income return as long as it's a personal transfer. If it's a gift or earned income it changes things.
Q. As an 18 year old can I dropout of high school as a dependent on my father's tax papers without him landing in jail?
A: The ability to claim you as a dependent is not related to whether you're in high school. The question is did he provide over one half of your support.
Q. Can NYS still assess individual income tax if it is beyond the three year statute based upon reliance on the IRS that
A: The State of New York has a three year statute of limitations to asses additional income tax, but that is not reliant on the federal statute of limitations.
Q. Best small business structure llc, or s corp?
A: That depends on a number of additional factors. An LLC is almost always better than nothing. And the S-election requires an entity to be accepted. So the LLC is essentially a foregone conclusion. The question becomes to s-elect or not. That question becomes first an issue of eligibility. Assuming the entity is eligible to be taxed as a small business corporation we have to analyze income, assets, and the goals of the owners. Neither is better, each is a tool to be used where appropriate.
