How Are LLCs Taxed? Your Beginner Guide

As a small business owner, it is vital to know where your money is going and what taxes you must pay every month, quarter, or year, so you can budget accordingly. Image
A limited liability company (LLC) is a business that gives the owners limited liability, so their assets are protected if they were to be sued or get into financial difficulty.
For this reason, it’s an incredibly popular business structure, but understanding how they are taxed can be complicated. We’ve broken it down for you here, so read on to understand exactly how LLCs are taxed so you can move forward with confidence.

1/35 In 2017, the tax-exempt Koch Foundation and Koch Institute donated over $2 million to conservative media outlets, including $980,000 to the Daily Caller Foundation, the tax-exempt entity that underwrites Tucker Carlson’s The Daily Caller. doi.org/10.1017/978110…
2/35 Now, why would the Koch brothers be spending money on that? Probably for the same reason the far more reclusive billionaire Robert Mercer invested in Breitbart. bloomberg.com/news/features/…
3/35 With the rise of movements defending specific groups a la FDR and LBJ: labor, civil rights, consumer, environmental, and women’s movements, too much power had slipped into the hands of people who made excessive demands (fairness) of government and corporations.

I'm not the best brain here.
Yes it's true

I'm sick of #ForeverWar as it's termed

I'm sick of #Starvation and #illness esp in #yemen

I'm sick of #palastinian oppression by #Israel and the seeming #aparteid there

I'm sick of #US interference in #SouthAmerica, at least

🔎 'Corporate concentration in the US #food system makes food more expensive and less accessible for many Americans' 💵🌽🇺🇸

🗞️ Excellent new piece in the @ConversationUS by @hendricksonm & IPES-Food's own Phil Howard 👇🏾

Quick thread! 🧵/1

theconversation.com/corporate-conc…
"We’ve closely followed #corporate consolidation of food production, processing and distribution in the U.S. over the past 40 years. In our view, this process is making #food less available or affordable for many Americans," say Hendrickson & Howard. /2
"Consolidation has placed key decisions about our nation’s #foodsystem in the hands of a few large companies, giving them outsized influence to #lobby policymakers, direct food and industry #research and influence #media coverage." /3

सरकारनेच जमीन अधिग्रहण कायदा राबवून, शेतकऱ्यांची लाखो एकर जमीन तिही अत्यंत कमी दराने संपादित केली आणि भांडवलदारांच्या घशात घातली.तालुका स्तरापासून राजधानीच्या शहरापर्यंत औद्योगिक क्षेत्रासाठी जमीनी संपादित करण्यात आल्या. त्या हडपलेल्या जमिनिचे भाव आता गगनाला #antifarmerlaws #land
भिडले आहेत, हजारो हजार रुपये एका एका चौरस फूटाच्या किमतीचे झाले आहेत. एका एका उद्योगपतीकडे अशी हजारो एकर जमीन पडून आहे. अशा या सुलतानी कायद्याबद्दल मुग गिळून गप्प बसणारे लोक, आता अदानी अंबानी शेतकऱ्यांच्या जमीनी बळकावतील असा कांगावा करत आहेत. हे लोक एक लक्षात घेत नाहीत की #Ambani
ज्या दिवशी औद्योगिक घराण्यांना शेती करावी वाटेल त्या दिवशी जमीन धारणा कायदा संपलेला असेल. आवश्यक वस्तू कायदा संपलेला असेल. त्या परिस्थितीत शेतकरीही आपल्या मनाप्रमाणे किंमती घेऊन भांडवलदारांना जमीनी विकतील.

The #UK’s economic and political life revolves around corruption
By Dorset Eye -
Fear, shame, embarrassment: these brakes no longer apply. The government has discovered that it can bluster through any scandal. No minister need resign. No one need apologise. No one need explain.
As public outrage grows over the billions of pounds of #coronavirus contracts issued by the #govt without competition, it seems determined only to award more of them. Never mind that the consulting company
#Deloitte, whose personnel circulate in and out of govt, has been strongly criticised for the disastrous system it devised to supply protective equipment to the #NHS. It has now been granted a massive new contract to test the population for #Covid-19.

#WeThePeople have an important opportunity to deliver the message to any & all #politicalparties by re-registering as #Nonpartisan, post your primary, for this upcoming #November2020 Election!
There remains NO sound rationalization nor justification to remain coerced into being #partisan, as #corporate #capitalist #party #lobbyist overreach & influence are verified #unconstitutional! Even the tertiary #politicalparties are vulnerable to the same coercion! Image
Nothing politically significant will ever change until the general populace understands the fact that political parties are NOT necessary & completely disavow their assumed control of elections & legislation that is NOT intended nor sanctioned by the U.S. Constitution.

1/ The startup ecosystem in #Pakistan has entered the next phase.

It has moved from being nascent to more indigenous in nature. The sector is now facilitated by more than 35 incubators & accelerators, 20 formal funders & investors, and 80 co-working spaces across the country.

(1/#) Doing what matters: most of what you do in your corporate job doesn’t “move the needle.”

20% of that 10 hour day is what is driving value.

How do you figure out what matters so you can do more of it?

Once you do, your career will never be the same.

#Pareto #corporate
(2/#)

This isn’t a platitude. Once you figure it out, you’ll be in a better place and will notice two other issues to confront: 1) your email will back up and 2) you’ll get really tired working...

Both happen because you learn to prioritize “needle moving” almost like a game.
(3/#)

...good work makes you tired because once you figure it out, there is higher volume and it is more concentrated; and email must be done but it gets in the way of good work so it gets depriortized because good work feels better.

Thread: For a good couple of years now, I have heard @makemytrip stories through #youtube videos, have admired the progress, and got inspired. Today had a privilege to listen to #MakeMyTrip Founder @DeepKalra at @headspin_io #Automation #Hackathon wrap. (1/N)
Trying to list down a few things which I could capture from all the wisdom which was flowing and ones which I will probably remember for a long time.

1. People (#customer) have to come back for a reason. Make sure to give them that. (2/N)
2. Sales were saying go back to the #Corporate job but the heart was saying "Too Early to Give up".

3. Customer Retention is the most important thing.

4. On #UX: I (Customer) am going to give you 5 minutes of my life to you. You have that much time to grab the eyeballs. (3/N)

This new C-suite sanctimony about no longer treating shareholder returns as the sole purpose of the corporation is all well and good, but did these latter-day Princes of the Church ever actually ASK the owners of the property over which they dispose if that's what THEY want?
Their predecessors showed similar arrogance in taking the widow's mite -offered in Christian charity- from the collection box, as well as the tithes levied ostensibly to support their mission, & lavishing it on self-enrichment, artworks, even wars. Look how THAT worked out!
Moreover, there's a certain insidious sundering of duty from privilege, of risk from reward, involved here.
"I am a philanthropist-by-proxy," the #corporate Croesuses can say: "so I don't have to run the businesses to generate income, just plaudits fom my equally-smug peers."

Extraordinary times when a taxable #corporate issuer ($AMZN) can fund for three years at 40 basis points! Still, we don’t think there’s much of a chance of #default in three years and the short-term spread to comparable @USTreasury notes is reasonable, given present conditions. Image
But is this the right price to be funding companies longer-term, versus their long-term #earnings, and cash flow #yields available in #equity markets? Absolutely not! So, that suggests that the forward curves for many of the rates #markets are priced incorrectly, in our view.
We think all of this implies that balance in #portfolios is a harder and harder ideal to achieve, but over the intermediate- to long-term, is still one that’s well rewarded.
