Working as a contractor for the first time. Employer says he will not be giving me a 1099 or a W-2. What do I do? by dudubuttah in tax

[–]DasHuhn 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Figure out how much money he gave you during the year, and then report that under Gross Receipts for your Schedule C. You don't need the 1099, but it helps you quite a bit in remembering how much you received during the year.

CA LLC S-CORP payroll requirements and individual/solo 401K questions? by throwaway8382901 in tax

[–]DasHuhn 0 points1 point  (0 children)

How much would an accountant like yourself expect to be paid for such a consultation per say, ballpark? I was ultimately planning on paying an accountant to review my process and patch any holes after the fact.

I'm rural midwest so prices are a bit different than California, I'm sure. I'd guess $300 and show you how fill out a 941, a 940, how to handle state withholding, how to handle state sales tax, how to handle state unemployment. I would not teach you how to file an 1120S, and I'd show you how to deal with my states version of the LLC board. Follow up sessions would probably be $120/hour, minimum 1 hour, payment due up front.

What show or movie do you hate that you haven't actually seen? by cthiax in AskReddit

it's difficult to tell a unique story when yours is based upon another not-great story, though.

CA LLC S-CORP payroll requirements and individual/solo 401K questions? by throwaway8382901 in tax

[–]DasHuhn 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Have consulted several accountants but most have been relatively insecure about answering my more in-depth questions.

I wouldn't give indepth answers to most of these questions either, for a non-client. If I was doing the tax returns, I have no problems answering (and assisting, actually) with 1099s/W-2 and payroll questions.

I don't know if you'll have a 944 or a 941, but 944 is yearly and due in January. 941s are paid weekly, monthly, or quarterly depending on $ amounts, and the 941 is actually filed January 31st(4thQ), April 30th(1st Q), July 31st(2nd Q, October 31st every year. The 940 must be paid when you owe over $500, and is filed in due by January 31st as well. The 1120S is due March 15th, and you can receive a 6 month extension to file your tax return, but payment is due on your individual return on April 15th as normal.

I believe you need to set up a new 401K for the company vs the individual, but am not entirely sure would normally do research for a client in such a position.

Cranberries Dolores O'Riordan has died by Orlando146 in Music

[–]DasHuhn 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm doing really well, thanks for asking! I've been at the hospital / rehab facility since October, and getting close to getting out of here. Only thing I can't do as I used to is stairs - and the PT/OT office is waiting for my orthopedic surgeon to clear me to do stairs. Orthopedic doc seems to like to wait to see me before addressing PT/OT concerns, but usually means a few weeks until they get updated orders :|

[–]DasHuhn 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Percocet I believe is oxycodine and Tylenol together in some kind of blend. And I don't have too much consistent pain thank GOD. I dislocated my knee, tore the ligaments and have some nerve damage in my leg/feet now. The first few weeks were awful, but tomorrow is month 3.

[–]DasHuhn 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I was on percocets for 2 months before the doc pulled the order stating that if i needed strong pain meds, we'd figure something non-opiate out, because addiction rates after 2 months. I'm glad he did, because I found out that tylenol works just as well.

Aziz Ansari Accused of Sexual Assault by theavenged in television

[–]DasHuhn[M] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

We've removed it so far because, as far as I know, Babe.net isn't a news site. No one seems to know this accuser, and Aziz Ansari hasn't replied to anything yet.

Since it's an anyonymous account, and Babe.net isn't a credible website, we've chosen to err on the side of caution and not allow these posts until such a time where it IS better known.

It's certainly not because one of the mods is a Master of None fan, I don't particularly like the show or Aziz comedy and I'm pretty high up on the mod list :)

Easier to get a job.

Depends on the state. In my state, 9/10 times, the person who appeals wins. Not the immediate appeals, but the final appeals when it's in front of a judge (Or teleconfrence with a judge).

And if he's going after the IRS to win his SS-8 determination, which it sounds like he would win, he wouldn't need to pay both halves, just his portion.

OP should be figuring out what his income tax will be, and then sending in 7.65% of his wages to cover his social security / medicare payments. Yes, it's on a 1040-es unless you want to do it online and make it easier on yourself.

Do insurance policies pay out that quickly? Here's hoping I never need it, but I always assumed it takes forever.

My father's life insurance took 5 days until we were approved, but 17 days to actually get to us (12 days after approval). Some are faster than others!

Quad Cities River Bandits! by Bdubs21 in QuadCities

[–]DasHuhn -1 points0 points  (0 children)

MOst of my family are fat and tall, and I haven't been to a ball game in years because of that. Are there seats that would be comfortable for a giant? I'm 6'10, 600 pounds and need 28 inch seats to be comfortable atm. I don't go to ball games because I just assume I'd be miserable the entire time sitting, and I know I couldn't stand for all of it, so I just don't go.

Up and coming Twitch streamer doesn't take it too well when he finds out he has to pay some "big shot fucking stream wizard" to help promote his channel. by Hdalby33 in ChoosingBeggars

[–]DasHuhn 0 points1 point  (0 children)

n'a, but I know plenty of people who think all of those things aren't real jobs. I know a house cleaner in my area that makes more than most doctors. She's always frustrated that she has to pay in 40 grand in income taxes every year because she never saves up for it and has to take 2 or 3 weeks of payments to send to the gov't.

[–]DasHuhn 6 points7 points  (0 children)

:) I've always been..scared of doctors, dieticians, nurses being super judgemental about my weight, about my health, and about how to get better help, and how UNGODLY EXPENSIVE THEY MUST BE!!!. I've found out that absolutely no one wants to make me feel shitty, they all want me to be better, they all want to help me as best as they can professionally, and all of them are shockingly affordable. I've sat down with 2 dieticians - one who was super kick ass and gave me her email so I can shoot her questions rather than make an appointment with her and helped me come up with a dozen ways to not eat my emotions away. They've talked to me about whether I need antidepressants during my stay, about how important it is I recognize depression setting in and how far back it can set you; making sure my heart was OK and making sure I was prescribed any blood pressure medication, getting consults for sleep apnea done. My dietician appointments were like $10 bucks out of pocket if i didn't get my emergency insurance (I qualified for state aid only because after my accident i wasn't expected to work anymore in the future, and well that's important)

I guess all of that rambling really was to say that I'm no longer afraid to seek out the help that I need, whether it be from friends, family, internet friends/strangers, or professionals. Worlds not as scary.

[–]DasHuhn 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I want to believe that I can do all of what needs to be done, but deep down inside, I think I maybe using him as a reason to avoid dealing with my own shit, and once I'm alone with myself maybe I won't be able to hide anymore.

Hey, every one of us has a difficult as shit past and things we're hiding from. If I'm being completely honest with my self, and with you, I weight 660 pounds. THat's mostly due to emotional eating, and I like to say a lot it's because my dad recently passed away (Which is true) and that when I split with my exfiance it really stressed me out (this is also true) and I gained back a bunch of weight, but if I look truly inside of me for answers, I know that ultimately the reasons I turn to food is to drown out the fears that I'm ultimately not good enough; that ultimately, I'm someone who relies on his friends and family and isn't man enough to handle his own shit; that I don't have a rainy day fund because I've always had my parents willing to bail me out, and that if any of my friends knew these flaws of me, they'd NEVER be willing to be my friends, they'd absolutely stop talking to me and run away. That really, I gained weight in order to have an excuse and shut them out before they really could do it to me, so it wouldn't hurt as bad when I lost them, like I did in my childhood and lost my friends.

But that's all horse shit and just because those are my deepest, darkest and scariest fears doesn't mean that those fears are completely unconquerable for me. Of course they are, I just have to be self aware and attempt to do it, even if it IS super scary. You got this. I'm 15 pounds down as of today (So I guess technically my weight is 645), I'm eating so much healthier (Even if, until this week, I haven't been losing any weight because of the sheer number of milk calories I've been drinking....been drinking nearly 3/4 a gallon of milk a day here.)

Oh man, that makes it way way easier in some respects. Start the process back up! I'm glad you reached out to the lawyer. I know you want to do this, you're just having trouble finding the strength. You're an awesome person, and I'm super glad you're at least taking another look at it.

And when I said 3 months will be gone before you know it, I absolutely mean it. 3 months ago I dislocated my knee and I've been in a hospital since then recovering. I just started to walk this week. They're thinking I MIGHT be out of here in another month, all depends on how much I can handle moving my knee, sitting down with it, how long I can tolerate standing again, and how I can do sitting on regular toilets and regular showers. It was just yesterday I had decorated my house for halloween because I was super excited about passing out candy. I've been gone for so long I forgot what my fridge looked like. And I love my fridge.

Go do some visa tourist things and do it for work. I don't care how old you are, you're young enough to go out and live life again and without that cruel, tempting asshole. Good luck yankneck!

Hey, if you've got 3 months I'd strongly suggest working on a plan, now, that doesn't rely on anyone else. You can do it! 3 months will be gone in an instant. I believe in you, and you can absolutely do it, you know the beginning steps, just keep at 'em.

Hey, I'm sure you can always reach back out to that lawyer and figure something else out, especially if you do it soon. You can absolutely do it, as difficult and as hard as it will be, you have a crazy amount of strength, resiliency left in you. Good luck.
