Let me tell you how it will be: there's one for you, nineteen for me

SO has job offer 1800 miles away in beautiful California. Yesterday we were told by friends to expect over 50% of his salary to be taxed, leaving us with net income not far from what we make now in landlocked midwestern state. Should we be concerned about being destitute if we take this job and make the move to Ventura County? [more inside]

Dealing with same-sex couples' taxes in community-property states: Could it be any more Byzantine?

You are not my tax advisor, but... We're a same-sex married couple in California, trying to make heads or tails out of the (confusing) IRS tax-filing pickle that is in effect for the 2010 tax year. We have to combine our community income, split it in two, add any individual income to the respective partner's form, and then create two separate forms for the IRS for each of us, but check the "single" category for filing status. Here's the dilemma: He gets a W2 (salaried employee). I freelance (several 1099s and a Schedule C). Do I have to duplicate the entire Schedule C across both forms, and put half of each deduction on my form and half on his? :-0 Or do I do the full deductions on my form and fill in something on the adjustment line (line 21, I think it is) on his 1040 form as a way of evening out the reporting?

Is it worth forming an LLC and in which state?

I'd been wanting to form a corporaton for a long time. So many benefits it seems:
  • track business expenses for income-tax deductions
  • protect assets against law-suits
  • gain credibility for certain transactions
  • privacy
  • But all the gory details are getting me down... [more inside]

    Good guide to investment taxation.

    Taxfilter: I am looking for a nice guide to US taxes that strikes a balance between 'Your First Tax' and 'US Section 52612.3524.23p.' I am particularly interested in investment taxation -- both the rules, procedures and suggested strategies. Though if someone can answer a specific question -- what California form is the equivalent of IRS form 1045 -- that would be handy too. [more inside]

    help me help the man

    I'm trying to make my new web project legal in California. After reading through the Nolo press book(s), we thought that perhaps the LLC was the best corporate structure (we are going to issue stock and give the primary developer a portion in lieu of payment). While the Federal government taxes LLCs like sole proprietorships - you aren't taxed unless you make profit, and I don't see our profit outpacing our costs for a year - the State of California charges an LLC "tax" (really a fee) of $800, due almost immediately after your incorporation paperwork goes through, so...
