re: 1099 pay - Poodlebrain
You would probably be considered an employee of the entity that contracts with the ambulance company for your services. They exercise enough control over the work you perform to qualify as your employer. ...

[quote]It's the same result, nitpicker.[/quote]No, it is not the same result. I have 25+ years of experience providing tax advice and preparing tax returns that back my assertion.

re: What's the most underwhelming concert you have been to? - Poodlebrain
Gosh there have been many concerts I've wished I never wasted the time to attend, but the single worst concert might have been the Grateful Dead in Jackson, MS with Donna Godchaux singing off key all night long. The other members were not in synch either, and it was almost painful. Thank God I als...

re: Hypothetical - Could a 2 loss UCLA jump Over Ohio State/Big 12 Champ? - Poodlebrain
If Bama has no great wins, then who has great wins? Beating Mississippi State is comparable to Baylor beating TCU. Those are the only head-to-head matchups between teams currently in the Top 10 of the CFP rankings....

[quote]Your 1099 income, if it's not paid by your primary W-2 employer, is considered self-employment income and you can contribute an amount to the SEP and deduct what you contribute from your self-employment income.[/quote]Not quite. Self-employment income is a specific type of income that is par...

re: Best analysis of LSU's quarterback situation that I've read. - Poodlebrain
LSU is not the only major football program that has had problems recruiting QBs. What has Texas done since recruiting Colt McCoy, who was in the same class as Perrilloux? How about Michigan? Has Florida recruited well other than Tebow? Do I have to mention Miami since Ken Dorsey? Recruiting QBs...

re: Judge rules Illinois pension overhaul unconstitutional - Poodlebrain
I figured as much. If the Legislature and Governor can pass laws reducing the benefit of the retirement plan for state employees couldn't they also pass laws reducing the benefits of the pan for judges? Is that enough to establish a conflict of interest?...

re: Judge rules Illinois pension overhaul unconstitutional - Poodlebrain
Wouldn't an Illinois judge be a participant in the state employee pension system? I'm too lazy to research whether there is a separate system for judges in Illinois. If the judge is a participant in the retirement system then doesn't the judge have a conflict of interests? Should the judge recuse...

re: Just got an email from the President... - Poodlebrain
And that is why Obama's whining about the issue is pointless. Neither side is willing to compromise on issues, so they sit on bills passed in the other chamber. Of course he won't mention the fact that he is benefitting politically from Harry Reid's manipulation of Senate rules. The Republicans...

re: Executive Orders by the numbers. - Poodlebrain
Many of the Executive Orders issued by Reagan were amendments to or revocations of prior Executive Orders. Sort of a housecleaning of the Executive Branch. Many were implemented for short-term purposes then revoked when the purpose was satisfied. That would be two Executive Orders that Reagan sig...

re: Anybody have a problem with Tiny Doo facing life in prison? - Poodlebrain
Does this mean all cops can be prosecuted if one cop breaks the law? I would love to see an enterprising prosecutor try to apply that law to rogue cops. It would definitely get around some of the current protections they get from their unions....

re: If you dropped Danny Woodhead into 50's/60's NFL, how good would he have been? - Poodlebrain
If Woodhead were to have played in that era, then shouldn't we assume he would have been raised on that era's nutrition and workout regimes? Woodhead might have been playing at about 170lbs given his 5'8" height, and without the modern training he might not be quite so fast....

re: Question for tax experts/CPA's and the likes - Poodlebrain
One can only guess at the employer's motivation for accelerating the payroll. As an employee it could cause issues for anyone who has maxed out their 401(k) contributions. I know I would be pissed if I had already maxed my 401(k) contributions based on the expected number of pay periods, and then ...
