[quote]I wasn't trying to rationalize it, I was asking for your opinion. I even said "serious question". I did try to rationalize why a family of 5 living on $30k should not be taxed. [/quote]
No, but you were constantly asking why I thought the current system was already plenty progressive. Cas...

[quote]A family of five making $58K, taking just standard deductions, does not pay any income tax. Zero![/quote]
How much do you think they should pay?[/quote]
I am fine with them paying zero. What I am not fine with is them complaining their burden (of well zero) is too much and we...

I disagree with her sentiment, but she didn't say people in congress shouldn't own stock. [/quote]
She unequivocally said that. look at the video at the top:

[quote]And of course you didn't read my earlier posts in which I clearly criticized the Director for her lies about LBJ?[/quote]
Sure did, which is why I was surprised you were doing verbal gymnastics to try to rationalize and explain why a director might not want to tell the truth about a civi...

Is this the same Elizabeth Warren who claimed she is not wealthy and argued that Senators should not own stock?
Now by own stock, she didn't mean her precious mutual funds in oh well stocks... ofcourse not those.

Good point on the 25 percent of income limitation - I have plenty of room (thankfully).

So to make sure I am not stupid - If I set up by by 12/31 I can capture what I spent this year?
Thanks so much for the info!...

GoIrish02 - Thanks so much for this guidance.
Given I am a sole member LLC, and thus only person eligible will be my wife, I assume I can easily 'self administer' as HIPPA, privacy and stuff is not an issue?

Short Story: Own my own LLC (single member) and have a Solo 401(K). This allows me, if earnings are high enough to put away up to $52k a year into the 401(K).
However, if wifey contributes to the LLC, I can pay her a wage and she can contribute into also, raising the max allowed to $104K a year...
