1. With the changes to MTurk's payment systems I'm recommending people take a moment to consider securing their on-site banking information from userscripts. TVJS has already been updated to explicitly prevent it from accessing sensitive pages, but workers should strongly consider permanently blacklisting scripts from running on pages containing banking information.

    [Guide] Globally Blacklisting Scripts From Running on MTurk's Bank Account Management Pages will show you how.

    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 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.
