I cannot determine for certain but believe they are corp's. Is there a place I can get to on the web, where I can determine this. Sec of state just said corporation.
Also, he is supposed to tell him his gross income every year. Is it possible that he could have been the President as claims this article in 2008 and have made no money from his work at the company? It seems impossible to me but I'd like your opinion. TX
Yes I am familiar with the site for the PA corps but they do not specify his companies as anything more than Corps. For instance it says, Starcom Paperworks Corp.
It does not say anything more than these are corporations so I am assuming they are corporations.
What would be the implication if these are indeed corps?
If stated as corps, they are indeed corporations. If corps he likely has issued shares, even if only to himself. The existence of shares would aide you valuing the corporation(s) and dividing such asset backed shares. Otherwise, for your purposes there really is no implication (assuming he has not issued shares to investors). IF he has, then the shareholders could seek to block you taking an interest in the company, claiming their rights and interest superior to yours as you have no involvement in the corporation or were aware of its active existence.
