    Also... question for everybody... if it says this...

    "After logging in, you will be prompted to take a photo of yourself using the webcam, enter your first name, a space, and the first two letters of your last name"
    .... is this too personal? I've seen this a few times and never done these.

    I mean for me, I think it's too much, but I'm not sure? Should that be flagged or is that acceptable?

    I know some people strip on webcam
    Some people talk to their loved ones on webcam
    I watched an episode of Black Mirror one time where someone was spying w a webcam
    Person made people’s lives hell w blackmail

    so I guess my opinion on webcams are mixed

    hi guys! if my business gets cd's, and then my business gives the cd's to myself as non-cash incentives, then I cash out the cd's as personal income. then that reduces my business income by the cost of buying the cd's, right? and I would owe personal income taxes on the value of the cd's at the time I cash them out. at which point the personal deduction would apply to cashing out the cd's. is that right?

    I need to pay myself in non-cash expenses.

    edit: the cd's would need to have a maturity date either more than 90 days or in the next calendar year after they were purchased? so they wouldn't be a cash equivalent maybe?

    if you pay yourself in non-cash expenses, what you pay yourself is a tax write off. I think I might be on to something. it's like when companies pay their employees in stock instead of cash. the business doesn't pay taxes on the stock they give away, because it's a non-cash expense.

    or maybe my business could issue me bonds. the interest my business pays to me on the bonds would be a non-cash expense. so it's non-taxable to my business. it's taxable as personal income, so the standard deduction would apply.
