re: Clintons lie about another $26M in "donations." - Poodlebrain
[quote]You're just making up shit, sorry. You have NO IDEA how much of that $26 million went to the Clintons rather than to the Foundation's programs.[/quote]I'm not making up anything. The Clinton's constructively received $26 million in payment for the speeches, and they donated that money to th...

re: Clintons lie about another $26M in "donations." - Poodlebrain
[quote]Who says they're "recurring"?[/quote]Unless all $26 million was for a single speech, there have to have been recurring transactions. A single $26 million transaction would most certainly be a material event since it would represent over 10% of the foundation's revenues for any one year. But...

re: Clintons lie about another $26M in "donations." - Poodlebrain
Are you seriously going to ignore economic substance over form, and the firmly established tax principle of constructive receipt? You are better informed than that, and you dishonor the accounting profession if you pretend nothing improper was done. How much money would those attending the speec...

You aren't seriously going to argue that $26 million of recurring related party transactions involving directors of an enterprise are immaterial are you? You know better than that. As for PricewaterhouseCoopers, they don't exactly have a spotless record. [link=(http://www.nytimes.com/2013/03/08/...

re: Clintons lie about another $26M in "donations." - Poodlebrain
The whole donation for speeches arrangement is a scam. Whenever Clinton family member delivers a speech they are performing personal services. The donors are paying to receive personal services from the Clinton family member in exchange for their payment. The amount of their deduction for a chari...

[quote]The Clinton Foundation, itself, reported the amount and yet you accuse them of lying?[/quote]You know a $26 million misstatement on financial statements and tax returns is material to the Clinton Foundation if you have the accounting and finance experience you claim.

re: Taking on a business partner - Poodlebrain
It's easy to go into business with a partner(s). Getting out of business with a partner(s) is a pain in the arse unless you have an enforceable agreement all partners are comfortable with. What happens if one partner dies and leaves a surviving spouse who adds no value with control of the partnersh...

[quote]You could "sell" it to them and close as quickly as the title company can exchange title work.

re: Advantages of incorporating a business in another state vs your home state? - Poodlebrain
The only advantages are legal, the ability to have the laws of either of those states laws apply in the event of lawsuits. There are zero tax advantages since income is sourced where you have economic activity, not where you organized the business. Disadvantages are the additional cost of retain...
