- Delaware does not require corporations or LLCs to file a corporate income tax form unless it conducts business or receives income from Delaware (so if you did services for a Delaware company you would have to file
1) You should have a USA CPA (or tax attorney) answer this but income "effective connected with a US trade or business" are taxed by the US.
2) Income tax, and possibly an annual minimum state Franchise Tax to maintain the status of your corporation.
3) Since 1989 there is a Tax...
You now understand the challenge of an attorny who takes a case on a contingnt fee. The lawyer not only has to win the case but collect to receive any money.
You could take a "judgment debtor exam" and compel them under oath to disclose where his bank accounts are. Then you need a writ of execution to execute on that/those accounts.
That alone should not be sufficient to pierce the corporate veil. Don't mix the two cards.
As a business attorney for small businesses, most of which come to me without having issue stock or membership interests or stock or have done so improperly, this is a far greater risk.
Your premise is incorrect - marriage is not the formation of a business partnership. While the IRS code does permit certain deductions, as my colleague points out, for the costs of a prenuptual agreement to the extent it protects business assets, perhaps, but "cute" thinking will not impress the IRS. Consult a CPA or tax attorney with your specific facts for advice you can rely on. You cannot rely on analysis from a public forum.
You do not need two different attorneys and I can think of several advantages of using the same attorney for both (e.g. perhaps negotiate a lower fee for 2 than for 1, knowing your full medical background and the interrelationship between the two accidents and the injuries.)
I don't know the facts but it appears your are being severely "low-balled" by the insurance companies. Make sure you sue the driver and owner of the vehicle you were in as well as the owners and drivers of the other...
I am not licensed in your state and other attorneys may differ.
That being said, I find such a comment completely improper. I would never hire that attorney. If they show up representing the other party I would tell my new attorney to seek to have them disqualified AND I would file a complaint with your state bar association.
An investment is not a guaranty of repayment or a right to demand repayment at a time of the investors choosing (in the absense of a written partnership apreement.
However, a "statutory" partnership is still governed by rules. To highlight the considerations (and without an in depth inverview) is not possible, but your returning "partner" probably has the right to an accounting for 50% of the distributions since he diappeared (less some defenses you might have) and probably has a statutory...
My colleague makes a good point about consideration but it is not the "end of the world." You could either issue shares to yourself alone with payment. If you"insisst" that shares were issued then you have a few options: your partner endorses his share certificates to you and you become 100 percent owner or surrenders his shares to the corporation and you become a 100 percent owner of what is left. The peril of forming your own corporation is that almost no "pro per" knows how to do it...
If she sues you will need legal representation.
You both might consider mediation which is a non-binding legal procedure which seeks a win-win situation as opposed to litigation which is essentially win-lose.
Sorry you didn't have a written agreement.
