I usually get a decent bonus ( like $20k) on top of my base
hello - so I usually get a decent bonus ( like $20k) on top of my base salary and get hammered on taxes come April. I usually have to pay $15-$20k in taxes. I wanted to ne smarter this year. In addition to my job I started a food formulation company and have a couple of retail products in the works that I made in my kitchen and will produce with a contract kitchen outside my home. My question is I have a back shed that I'm thinking about turning into a dedicated kitchen for this formulation business (not production). Construction could start this month...but I don't know if I have the money to complete the kitchen before the end of the year. Can the construction costs incurred in 2016 be used as expenditures, or depreciated as a a capital asset if the unit is not up and operating in 2016?
I run a non-profit that accepts in-kind donations of
I run a non-profit that accepts in-kind donations of intellectual property, digital and business assets (i.e. websites, online platforms, apps, etc). We then secure grants/donations to develop those assets into socially impactful technologies (i.e. FinTech for economic development, EdTech for helping students learn easier, etc).Once we develop a technology, we don't typically have the capacity to run/operate it at a large scale. Is it possible to sell/license that technology exclusively back to the original in-kind donor in exchange for equity in their business or some kind of fee?
