  3. I have a question about S Corps in regards to personal income taxes. I am thinking about starting up an S Corp and running a rental property business through that S Corp. I currently work a 9-5 and would keep working at it until I feel like I’m making enough from a new business. I understand that with an S Corp you aren’t require to pay yourself a salary. Could I use this as a method to report income only from my 9-5 job and therefore keep income based payments on debt down until a later date? Does the S Corp in any way affect my taxes if I don’t receive a salary in a given year?
  4. I posted this in the health care forum I'm sorry I didnt see this one. here goes. I work, or worked for a Cincinatti based conveyor company and my job is 100% travel. I started having problems with my left knee because we install conveyor systems In large distribution warehouses. We were working in Florida and I went to an orthopedic doctor. After 2 oral medications did not work the doctor wanted to try a cortazone shot but was concerned because I am a type 2 diabetic. She gave me the shot and a note keeping me off work 2 days. I took the note to work and the temporary supervisor told me he didn't have to submit it and told me to go to work. I worked 17 hours that day. I got off work and went back to my hotel where I fell out. My girlfriend called an ambulance because I was going into respatory failure. I was admitted to the hospital in Florida for 2 or 3 days. my blood sugars had spiked to almost 600. I got out of the hospital and returned to work. I called my hr. department and scheduled 11 weeks FLMA and set up short term disability. I went back to Missouri for my orthopaedic surgeon to look at my knee and perform arthroscopic surgery. I had to get clearance from my heart doctor since I suffered a major heart attack in 2013. the next morning I had another attack similar to the one in Florida and again taken by ambulance to the hospital. Being unconscious and prior heart patient they did a heart Cath. when I woke the doctors were standing over me telling me I needed a bypass operation so I told tham ok and had it done nov8th 2018. I then had the arthroscopic surgery March 8th. My knee was much worse after the surgery and my knee doctor told me " well you don't have the knee of an 18 yr old" then retired. My primary care Dr. put restrictions on me and my employer refused to put me back to work until I was 100%. I scheduled a second opinion and my insurance approved. my company pays short term for a 40 hour week for 6 months yet my work is mandatory 60 hour weeks. in April I was switched to long term ( option I paid for out of my check) I received a notice from my employer that I had full access to my 401k and I could take a full withdraw or roll it over but I could keep my health benefits if I paid 190 a week or pay period. I called Hr. to find out details and told I don't have to worry about it. everything was taken care of and they hung up. in July I get a notice to pay $774 to keep my benefits for work. that if I don't pay I will lose my benefits. I have a partial knee replacement in 2 weeks but I don't think I have a job to return too. have I been discriminated against? I think I need a good lawyer. any suggestions?

    Our land sold the property we live on, how long does the new guy have to give us to move out
  6. I was purchasing a truck from an individual with a verbal contract. First the truck had been broke down for 2 years prior to me acquiring it. I put thousands into it parts and labor, 1300 in new tires, then he refused payments, then wanted to barter tires tools chainsaws ext for payments. I also have not received a title, last week his personal truck broke down and he came and repossessed my truck from hospital parking lot with no warning, and has not returned or given me access to personal items in the truck. When he finally answered my call he said he acquired 800 worth of fines so his position has changed and he wants 800 cash and then I still have no garantee I will get it back with the way he has been so far. What are my legal rights here?
  7. I am confused on some of the legal terms and what they mean or are in reference... 1) Motions in Limeline? I am confused on what this exactly means . I was also wondering, how on an (8) eight person indictment, how the very last person on an indictment can go to court and be charged first before anyone else on the indictment?
  8. I bought 4 brand new appliances for my home and my tenant hasn't paid rent in 5months and stole all of them and sold them. she also stole $30.000 from me in 5 months. Now she is claiming that she is disabled and has no where to go and will not leave,,, What should I do?
  9. I was arrested in January of this year, I was not asked for permission to search my purse but my boyfriend gave permission for the car. My arresting officer was asked to resign years before after I turned him in for harassment when our relationship ended. This was never taken to court and I never pressed charges, but isn't this a conflict of interest?
  10. My cousin is selling a lake house in southwest MO. The potential buyer put down 500.00 earnest money. They found that there were repairs to the house that needed to be made upon inspection, and my cousin agreed to make the repairs, the repairs have been made and the property reinspected, the repairs amount to almost 10,000.00 . She also gave them a home warranty and a 3000.00 carpet allowance. The buyer wants to walk away. I am curious if the agreement is binding or can they be sued for cost of the repairs on the property?
  11. I am a mom of three kids. Almost three years ago my three kids and I flew from Missouri to my homestate of Washington for a funeral and never went back to their dad in Missouri. I have worked my butt off so my kids could have a better life here than we did in Missouri. Their dad, since our departure, has lost the house we had, spent time in jail for stealing class c felony in one county and drug charge in another. He hasn't had a job in at least 10 years. After he was released from jail he has been put on probation and restricted from leaving the state. This last summer we agreed on the kids going to Missouri to visit him for the summer. If he would fund the trip then I would grant permission. Our original agreement of one of his sisters driving the kids there and staying for the length of the visit and driving them back, fell through four days before the kids were scheduled to leave. His other sister came to his rescue and bought the kids plane tickets. She provided an itinery to show who was taking them to the airport, what documents were needed for the trip, times of flights, the whole 9 yards. The flight down went as planned in the itinery. Two weeks before the kids were to return home my oldest child, 12, calls me and tells me that she is going to stay with her dad and her brother, 8, is staying too and I can't make them come home. The middle child, 11, wanted to come home and not stay. I told my daughter that I would call her back because I needed to think about what she just said. For that conversation and every conversation is on speaker phone for their dad to hear. I had to sit and think about how I felt about them staying and also look at things from their point of view. Their dad said he had nothing to do with the decision, they came up with it all on their own, and it would only be for the school year. I am the custodial parent. He was named persons NOT ALLOWED to pick up kids from school without contacting me first. Somehow he was able to get their school records transfered, obtain social security cards, and enroll them without any school, doctors, counselors anyone calling me or informing me of any transfers being made. When I talked to him verbally and through email to let him know how i felt and how I thought this matter should be handled, my wishes were ignored. I felt if our 12yr old wanted to stay then I would give my permission, our 11yr old wanted to come home, and our 8yr old, I didn't feel was ready to make that kind of decision. At his age he is easily persuaded and just wants to make his parents happy, and isn't mature enough to be able to decide where he lives. I suggested that he come home with his sister and at the end of the school year if he still wants to live with his dad I would give my permission for him to stay for that next school year. I put my plan for visitation and my request of how this living arrangement should work into a nine page email that he never read or responded to. Two days before they scheduled return home flight, his sister sends me a message asking how many kids she is picking up from the airport. I never told her that they weren't all returning home, or that I was okay with any decisions of any of them staying. It was clearly stated in the itinerary that all 3 were returning home. I believe she had something to do with the kids staying or knew what was being planned. So now is where I have the biggest moral ind maternal dillema. I haven't done anything to protest the 2 staying. He can't pay his bills and can't afford foodfor them. They dont have water because of an unpaid bill, their electricity is getting shut off for non payment. My daughter was complaining of an issue she was having that I believe is a yeast infection. I told her what to buy and that she needed to see a doctor to make sure. She is only bathing once a week and has only 4 pair of underwear so she doesn't change them every day. Their dad claims that their insurance won't work in that state. I called and their insurance, I have for them, is active and there shouldn't be any problems being seen especially for her problem. She first informed me of her problem October 24, 2016 and as of 11/7/2016 still hadn't been seen by a doctor and the infection is still there. Their dad quit his job because concerned members of the church across the street stopped by and expressed their concerns of the kids being left home alone from 4:30pm-6:30am five days a week while he went to work. I had a huge problem with them being left alone. I didn't feel right leaving them home alone when they were all under my roof, even if i was never more than 5 min away. I have been worried and stressed on what I should do. He can't afford to keep the kids, cant pay the bills and may loose his house. He is on probation and if he missed a payment he goes back to jail for remainder of hes 10yr sentance. They are living with no water, barely any food, about to loose electricity and the roof over their head. They don't need to live like that. I have plenty of food, my bills are paid, they have health insurance, all their needs are met. I don't know what to file, with what dept to file, or with what state to file in.
  12. I was wondering can I sue the state or DCFS for mishandling my case plus pain and suffering. So what happen was that I was ordered by state to take parenting classes an domestic abuse classes after my ex an I broke up (unmarried). Once I talked to my case worker she gave me all the information. long story short i lost that paper an called my case worker to get info again. i called an left multiple messages but no return calls. After 5 years of leaving messages an getting no return calls an also i might add missing alot my kids life, birthdays, holidays, an first days of school. i googled my case worker hoping to get a cell number instead i get her new job number. so i call an she says she quit her job as a case worker around the time my case was dropped. it was dropped because i didnt take the classes. i tell her that i called her multiple times to regain info for classes she said her cases were switched over to a chris an she gives me the number and again no return calls. I call the supervisor an leave a unhappy message about the situation. She tells me theres nothing she can do about it. ive missed alot of my kids lives because of their mistake,i wrote the judge and called everyone there is to call to complain to. i filled out a complaint form an turning it in soon. ive started smoking cigarettes because of the stress this has caused an currently seeking therapy for my insomnia an depression. does anyone have a clue on what i should do>
  13. Legally have joint physical and financial responsibility of our 17 year old boys,.....but ....Bec my ex refuses to pay for anything I (mom) have had to step up and work a 60 hour a week job to make ends meet. I pay for everything and give my ex receipts but sometimes I may get some money but usually I get nothing or he decides he just doesn't feel like paying for anything, so I am stuck stepping up. My ex was awarded disability and I believe he is receiving several years of back pay. He told me the Social Security Admin is awarding the children a dependent portion of his disability and he is writing me a check 1x a month and he doesnt care what I spend it on....oh, and by the way I'm supposed to claim it on my taxes....Wait!...What!!!??......Aren't I supposed to get some paperwork on this????? He refuses to give me any legal paperwork..!!!....This is all about the kids here.....I don't want a darn dime for me....I want to make sure OUR children get what they are entitled to!! Dead beat dad won't pay for a dentist appointment or new shoes. Shouldn't there be something I can do to make sure he doing his part legally and the children are receiving what they are supposed to...I've been wanting to file for legal child support for years, but just didn't want to drag the kids thru anything painful....Any advice is appreciated..
  14. My parents had been married for 55 years when my father had a devastating stroke which left him paralyzed. My mother, then 77 years old could not care for him and moved into an apartment in my brother's home. Dad was able to come back home a year after his stroke. Except for Dad's IRA's, Mom took all marital assets with her. Now Mom has died and we know that she had several hundreds of thousands of dollars of their joint money. Here's the questions: wouldn't that money belong to my father? What if she named beneficiaries other than my father when she moved the money to different accounts? HOW can we find the money?
  15. I was arrested by an officer who had been in trouble for harassing me after our affair ended.. Shouldn't this be grounds for dismissal?
  16. I was hired as a manager at a country club. I am the son of members at the club. The COO/GM that hired me has retired. The new COO/GM has let me know that he is completely against the hire practice of member (son of members) on the management team. My question is: If he terminates my employment, would that be a type of discrimination? There is nothing in the policy manual on the subject.
  17. My son just moved into a rental property 10 days ago, on 9/26/16 the kitchen sink clogged and over flowed. When he finally got in touch with the complex manager they sent a plumber to unclog the sink. Well on Tuesday when he arrived home from work the kitchen was flooded again. The complex manager then advised him to speak with someone else, which he did. When he arrived home from work on Wednesday there were men in his apartment with digging in the floors with jack hammers. He was not notified that anyone would be given access to his apartment nor that there would be grave size holes in his kitchen and living room floors. He is the single parent of a 14 year daughter that sometimes has to return home from school alone. Also, he works a second job which he has to report to at 11:00pm. The workers wanted to work in his apartment all night. He made them leave. The holes go all the way through the ground to the pipes underground, now he is afraid that rodents will enter his apartment. My questions: since he has only been in this apartment for 10 days, is this cause for him to break his lease and should the complex owners be held responsible for replacing his dishes that were damaged, feeding him and his daughter since the use of the kitchen was taken away, and should they be required to either move him to another apartment or putting him up in a hotel or motel until the work is complete? The workmen informed him that they don't know how long this will take since the problem is underground.
  18. Hi, I've worked for a large bank for 8-1/2 years as a computer programmer. I am contemplating applying for a more advanced position with more pay, but I know they might discover criminal convictions I received 13 months ago, and then fire me. 20 Months ago I was in a car accident and had a severe head injury. I don't remember the accident, but was arrested half mile away from the scene. I don't know how I got there but assume I drove away from the accident. After being released from jail, I went straight to the hospital and had a CT scan and diagnosed with a concussion and neck trauma. I barely remember the arrest, but I was charged with leaving the scene of an accident (damages $6000 - felony, and no one injured, insurance paid), and as a bonus I was charged with 3rd degree misdemeanor assault on an officer because as they had me on the ground handcuffing me they said I swung my head back at the officers face. They said I smelled of alcohol but I don't drink, and they never charged me with a DUI or DWI. Instead, they said I refused a breath test, (and medical treatment), so I lost my license for a year. My lawyer fought that, but we lost. Now I have the arrest records, the court public record of a felony, but on probation, a misdemeanor 3rd degree assault conviction, and court record that I lost the case against the state of Missouri for appealing the alcohol refusal license suspension. I ended up doing a plea agreement, and plead guilty to the charges, and got probation on the felony with SES, and I had a lot of conditions, which I have already complied with, but I will be on probation another 18 months. My performance at work has always been reliable, and my boss and his boss are aware of the situation and what happened from my perspective. I have worked the 7 years before the charges and a year since the conviction with no other legal issues or performance problems. Would I be likely to loose my job if HR ran a criminal check on me for applying for the promotion? I am white, would Title VII protect me at all from being fired for my criminal background? My job does not require driving. In fact, I work from home and rarely see anyone for work. I don't know how HR would view the nature of the charges, and if they would have cause to fire me. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks
  19. My question is this: A vehicle belonging to my son gets titled in another persons name & his name and done so because he has no valid license to register it and other person does. Both people at the time know the arrangement is done for this purpose only. Fast forward to present day- My son goes to jail and gives me power of attorney to sell vehicle. I sell vehicle to person who name is on the title. I agree to have her make payments and we sign a contract and she takes the vehicle but not the title until it's paid off. PROBLEM- She doesn't make 1st or 2nd payment - won't give car back says its hers because her name is on title- True or False. Is my recourse to press charges for theft of property ?? file in court or just go get the law and bring them with me to repossess ??
  20. I work for a large hospital and recently injured myself. I had surgery less than 30 days ago. After 2 weeks I follow up with the doctor NP who was adamant that I could not return to work or have physical therapy until my next appointment with the doctor which was a month away. She gave me a do not returned to work note. Ok. After a week went by I thought about my medical insurance and who was going to pay for it. I called the work comp coordinator at my job and asked about using my paid time off to pay for my insurance since the check I receive wasn't much. The work comp coordinator had the doctor NP change my order to light duty so I could go back to work before I saw the doctor who was on vacation for 3 weeks. I had rotator cuff repair and one of my arm is in a sling. Of course he didn't care and force me back to work. The light duty that I was supposed to do required both hands. Needless to say, in an instinct I forgot that I was not to use the restrictive arm and re injured my shoulder all over again. What I want to know is there any type of way that you can report his conduct to some agency outside of the hospital? I do have an attorney but I want to go further because he lied and told me that my light duty would consist of just answering the phone and watch a monitor. It was much more than that. He was very rude and nasty to me which my attorney is aware of.
  21. Hi, I am being sued by a collection agency in small claims/circuit court. A judgment was entered against me, but is now set aside. A new trial date has been entered so they can attempt to reopen the judgment. The lawyer I retained has mishandled the case and I now want to proceed, on my own. Would I be able to file a motion to dismiss from here? If not, what might be an ideal next move?
  22. Terminated 8/8/16. Worked with company of 4 for 17 years. Salaried employee making $1260 biweekly until 6/30/16 when salary was dropped to $1200 biweekly without notice. Out on sick leave since 6/20/16. Still available by phone to consult with co-workers during this time. FMLA does not have to be applied because of size of company. No insurance benefits. Earned and accumulated 160 hours of vacation still due. Can they not pay me for vacation? Also, was it legal that they cut my salary without notification? Thanks.
