Mr. Jones is the president of a corporation that is owned by him and members of his family. During a tax year?
Wow and this is getting to be a serious problem at this time in his life RIGHT. Go for it and get it done NOW OK. Paying Yourself The procedures for compensating yourself for your efforts in carrying on a trade or business will depend on the type of business structure you elect. Below are topics that frequently arise when new business owners ask the Internal Revenue Service questions about paying themselves. http://www.irs.gov/Businesses/Small-Busi... Reasonable compensation Because an officer of a corporation is generally an employee with wages subject to withholding, corporate officers may question what is considered reasonable compensation for the efforts they contribute to conducting their trade or business. Wages paid to you as an officer of a corporation should generally be commensurate with your duties. Refer to "Employee's Pay, Tests for Deducting Pay" in Publication 535, Business Expenses for more information. Public libraries may have reference sources that provide averages of compensation paid for various types of services. The Internal Revenue Service may determine that adjustments must be made to the income and expenses of tax returns for both the corporation and an individual shareholder if the officer is substantially underpaid for services provided. Hope that you find the above enclosed information useful. 09/17/2013
Would your opinion of President Trump change meaningfully if you heard an audio tape of him using the N-word?
If you haven’t figured out by now that Trump is a racist, him dropping an N-bomb won’t change your mind.Trump the racist:BirtherismUndoing every Obama initiativeHousing discrimination lawsuitsAllowing high-rollers in his casinos to have black dealers replaced at their tablesCasino managers hiding black floor workers in the kitchen when Trump came to the propertyAttacking a Muslim Gold Star FamilySaying a judge of Mexican heritage couldn’t be impartial toward himDidn’t immediately renounce a KKK endorsement during his campaignEncouraging mob violence against the Central Park Five whose convictions were later overturned on DNAQuestioning the intelligence of Maxine Waters, Don Lemon and LeBron James.
What do you think of the internet censorship of Alex Jones?
They’re companies that can do whatever they like. If they want to ban him for “hate speech,” then they’re free to do so.But it reminds me of a poem we read in grade 6 history on the Holocaust. We recently read The Boy in Striped Pajamas in class, so this poem was relevant as well.First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—Because I was not a Socialist.Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Trade Unionist.Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Jew.Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.I’m adapting this to the precedent set by Facebook, Apple, and Spotify:First they came for paranoid conspiracy theorists, and I did not speak out—Because I was not a paranoid conspiracy theorist.Then they came for the conservatives, and I did not speak out—Because I was not a conservative.Then they came for the liberals, and I did not speak out—Because I was not a liberal.Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.I estimate 99% of people don’t take him seriously. Maybe they like his rhetoric against Obama, or simply like to watch his livid conspiracy theorists, but remember that he’s just playing a role. He’s a paranoid conspiracy theorist and a complete loon as well. You are under NO circumstances forced to watch him.If social media companies start banning more and more “far right” people, there will be people who come up with a platform that actually espouses freedom of speech. And that will replace these ones. Because freedom of speech is not meant for upholding popular speech, but also unpopular speech.That’s how capitalism works.Thanks for the A2A Christopher WilliamsFootnotes Martin Niemöller: Biography

The WWE is a publicly traded company. Stock holders who buy shares own pieces of the company. Vince McMahon, Jr owns 48% and is the largest single owner of stock in the company.Other members of his family own roughly another 5% divided among his wife (Linda), his children (Shane & Stephanie) and his son-in-law (Paul “Triple H” Levesque).The remaining stock is bought and sold openly by the public on the NYSE (New York Stock Exchange).Before it was taken public the company was originally founded as Capitol Wrestling Corporation (CWC) by Jess McMahon and Toots Mondt after breaking away from the NWA (National Wrestling Alliance). It has operated under several names over the years:Capitol Wrestling Corporation (CWC)World Wide Wrestling Federation (WWWF)World Wrestling Federation (WWF)World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE)Though there have been other partners involved the McMahon family has been in primary control since the company was founded, handed down from Jess McMahon to Vincent James McMahon (Vince McMahon, Sr) and to the current majority stock holder Vincent Kennedy McMahon (Vince McMahon, Jr).From 1980 until 1999 the WWF was controlled by McMahon, Jr through a parent corporation: Titan Sports, INC, this was dissolved when the company was taken public in 1999 and the name change to WWE was completed, with the stock symbol chosen as WWE rather than WWF to end further conflicts with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF).Board, Committee and Charter information can be found here:https://corporate.wwe.com/invest...With Vincent K McMahon, his daughter Stephanie and son-in-law Paul Levesque all being voting members of the board, their combined total of over 50% of the stock keeps control of the company in the family.Vince K McMahon, Stephanie, Paul “Triple H” Levesque”
