Loren: A new question: the sub-tenant don't want the arrears

Hi, Loren:A new question: the sub-tenant don't want the arrears to be in the agreement with him. My lawyer said that it doesn't matter that much and he suggested me to remove that part. He said that if the sub-tenant doesn't move out by May 1st, we can still go after him for the three months rent even if we remove that part in the agreement. is this true? Thanks

I have a question related to my new LLC. It has been around

Hi, I have a question related to my new LLC. It has been around a month that it was created and since I did it myself, I have not considered adding my spouse as a business partner. I know I am still under the period that IRS allow me to make an amendment, but first, I would like to know if that is a wise decision to make at this point since I am just starting up an online business. My concerns are referent to taxation, by being a one member LLC, would I still be able to make deductions such as car lease, office supplies, phone, and internet?Thank you

Hello, I have an ongoing lawsuit and I own the business property it happened on. The business is incorporated under my name with a "PLLC". In a statement in one of their claims that my lawsuit is not valid, they state, "their damages are not damages that belong to the plaintiff."I would like to know:1. Does this comment by the utility co have a leg to stand on & if so,2. How do I go about handling this? OR3. Do I even need to address this comment that the "damages are not damages that belong to the plaintiff." ?

I agreed to go into business with a company to market a

I agreed to go into business with a company to market a website selling mattresses. I wrote him a check for $18,000 for half the web-site. We agreed in verbal to a contract but he has not signed the contract yet. He came in and we actually started selling to test the waters and see how it may go. We agreed to split everything 50/50. He ended up talking a handful of my telemarketers to go and set up there own call center and basically broke our agreement. He is using the web-site which we agreed we both owned. He had paid me my share up until a couple of weeks ago from the test sales. He kept telling me they had not been selling anything for the last three weeks. We would transfers calls to his store and they would sell. We found it odd that they were not making sales. Basically since I have the canceled check for half of the web-site that I paid him and deposit from where he paid me half of sales do I have a case to sue him and get my money back with damages as he stole my employees
