re: UM playing this to perfection - Poodlebrain
I respect the fact that Michigan has been patient. They have waited for their prime candidate, assuming it is Harbaugh, to fulfill contractual obligations. The delay also allows any secondary candidates, such as Les Miles, to remain loyal to their current employers through the completion of the co...

re: Who here has read Hitler's "Mein Kampf" - Poodlebrain
I read it. It is not the easiest book to read. I fell asleep quite often reading it. The most interesting parts, from my recollection, were his critiques of Communism. His interpretations of history weren't remotely close to what a typical American is taught. One other thing about Hitler is t...

The S Corp is limited to certain types of qualified plans, and the shareholder employee would be subject to the limits of the plan. If the S Corp hires any additional employees they would have to be eligible to participate in the plan in order for the plan to remain qualified. As long as the S Cor...

All of the payroll software I've seen will generate the appropriate withholding based on the information entered. If the employer provides the proper information indicating the payment is a bonus, then the payroll software will calculate withholding for a bonus payment, even if the bonus payment is...

re: K-1 Income and retirement planning...paging poodlebrain - Poodlebrain
S Corps can be complicated. Was the recipient of the K-1 an employee of one, or more, of the S Corps? If so, then his options may be limited since the S Corp will have to offer the same type retirement plan to any other employees. Contributions to an IRA should not be impacted by income in the ...

The type of K-1, and whether the income is reported as self-employment income, will determine how much the recipient may contribute to a qualified retirement plan. The worst case scenario, if this is the recipient's only so...

re: Classic Rock bands you despise, yet most people love - Poodlebrain
I was absolutely in love with Journey growing up in the Bay Area before Steve Perry joined the band. They were a hard driving progressive rock band with Neal Schon, Gregg Rolie, Ross Valory and Aynsley Dunbar as the core. I could tolerate them for a few years with Perry, but I grew to loathe them ...
