Pondy,

What revenue do you think the government will collect by your tax idea? 90% over 5 mil

"Specializing". That's funny. "Hey boss - can I get some more of those "special" insurance forms to fill out?"

BTW, a 1099 is the form used when you pay other people for work they have done for your business (if you actually had one) - independent contractors and such. It's not the form used to report your total income to the government.

Ooops. smoking smiley

Yes - as I stated. It's not the form used to report total income - the equivalent of the 1040EZ I referenced. Ask the guy at HR Block to explain when you stop in next April. Then ask how much you need to make before it's worthwhile to incorporate. Give you something to shoot for. smiling smiley

There is no need to do that indy, incorporating is about protecting your business...

Now when my daughter is older... possibly, but she's 10 and wants to be a meteorologist

There's more to it than just protecting your business (although that is important). Right off the bat you can save money thru expanded tax breaks and reducing your SSI obligation (cha-ching!). I don't know the rules in Texas, but here in FLA it's only about an extra $250 or so to be incorporated as opposed to sole proprietor. There's a small buy-in to get started - think it was $175 for me (back in 1996 or so). Money well spent. Don't have to chase down 1099s anymore. Might qualify for an ACA subsidy too... if you play your cards right. winking smiley

I'm not going to receive special tax breaks from incorporation everything depends on the business situation, and no I'm not going to qualify for a subsidy we will break the 5% mark this year in household income

I don't receive any special tax breaks (or use loopholes) - I just get the same standard business deductions everyone gets. You might think you don't have many business expenses, but I don't either. These days, virtually everything in my business (and graphics in general) is done on a computer - online, email, pdfs, etc... Why do you think I'm online a lot? I take a break from work and post stuff here.

"Why do you think I'm online a lot?"

Because you're an aging, miserable troll that doesn't have a life?
Re: Is mandated wealth redistribution immoral?

Let me see...

Would I rather be an aging, miserable troll who's online a lot...

OR...

An aging, miserable troll perpetually lurking behind the scenes in an obsessive and futile quest to get the upper hand on an aging miserable troll who's online a lot?

Hmmmm... tough choice, Navy. However... it's easy to see which one you prefer.

Sorry about that. Next time I'll post using smaller words in the Easy Reader Font.

Hey Indy, I'm about halfway through the forward, but I'm going to the movies, I'll finish when I get back, k?

Hey Indy, can I get your joke in hardcover? lol I like to read in bed at night to help me sleep, especially stuff that drones on and on and on and on and on and on ......

"... and then I said to Navy, no you're the miserable online troll, it's not me who's the miserable online troll, it's you. Okay, hang on, cause this is gonna get really good. Okay, so after that I said that I think that it's really you ... not me, that's the important part, that's it's not me ... it's you that's really a mis—"

Gimme a sec, I'm just finishing up the preamble to one of your jokes. Need to lighten things up after that, so I'm gonna turn on C-SPAN.
