If i own an automotive business in Delaware- The law states

If i own an automotive business in Delaware- The law states plasti dip can be sold and used in Delaware as long as the seller isnt receiving compensation for applying it. Silly law. But basically, I can sell plasti dip. I can even plasti dip any car I want, no paint booth needed. But if I get PAID to plasti dip someones car, now its illegal due to VOC regulations.My question is this- if I sell plasti dip at inflated prices, and advertise FREE install with purchase of 5 gal of product... is this a legal grey area? Technically being paid for the product... not the install.

In California, can a for-profit LLC accept help from volunteers? I host a social cause based podcast and my fans often want to help out with production or guest booking, or social media, and I'd love the help, but I'm unsure if I'm allowed to accept the help offered without paying them.

We are a small company selling on Amazon.com on the

Hi,We are a small company selling on Amazon.com on the Internet. We want to have a professional to help us incorporate a policy-friendly offshore company in Delaware in the US and handle the taxes issue for us every year. We will pay for these.OUR SITUATION:We are based in mainland China, we want to register an LLC offshore company in Delaware in the US to conduct our Amazon.com on-line selling business, we will sell all over the country in different states in the US. Our product is tangible. As Amazon has customer all over the USA, some people in Delaware could buy our products through Amazon.The owner of this new company will be two Chinese individuals (NOT USA citizens). We will operate the business in mainland China, we will have our office, staff, here in mainland China. We will not have any employees/staff in the USA, no office in the USA, no any other real estates in the USA. Some of our inventory will be shipped to and stored in the USA located warehouse which belongs to Amazon. Amazon has many different warehouse in different states in the USA, they may store our cargos in any states as they want.We are a company of 6 years old already here in mainland China, we will run this new company in the USA as a long term business.We expect our sales to be: USD10,000/month for the first 12 months, and USD15,000 for the second year. We expect that we will spend 30% or more of our sales revenue as advertising fees on Amazon (these fees will be spent on Amazon.com). You could see that the sales volume for this new company is small, we do not want to make the sales of this company big, we have other companies. We establish this company for running the advertisement on Amazon.com for us, meanwhile, it will sell some products.We will use the http://www.payoneer.com to collect all our Payment for the sales on Amazon. We are not sure how we will pay the advertisement fees to Amazon.com, probably by credit card or by the same account on http://www.payoneer.comWHAT WE EXPECT FOR THIS NEW COMPANY:We are considering to register an offshore company in Delaware because quite some people suggest this, as they say that Delaware is policy-friendly for such Internet business.From our point of view, we want to register a suitable company for our type of business in a policy-friendly state in the USA, what we need is:1. Less startup fees and annual fees2. Tax efficiency (pay less tax as possible)OUR QUESTIONS ARE:We want to know if our plan above is the best for our type of business: meanwhile, any comments for the below four questions would be appreciated:1. Is an offshore LLC type company in Delaware in the USA good for this?2. What amount of taxes do you expect that we should pay for this every year? As you know our expected sales volume already, also you know our minimum expected expenses.3. As we will use http://www.payoneer.com to collect all our payment, do we still need to open a bank account in the USA? If we do not need, this will be good, as we want to make everything as simple and easy as possible.If you know anyone who can offer services for our startup registration and handling the taxes issue for us in the coming years. Please feel free to tell us.Thanks a lot!Allen

I own a small business (flea market). I noticed that I purchased of 20k in merchandise during 2016 but unfortunately I didn't do a good job with my sale receipts. I did send it my quarterly sales tax dues but it wasn't exact. I'm afraid the IRS is going to look at my expenses and what I reported and possibly audit me. What can I do when I don't have sales receipts for none of my sales...at the flea market we just sale, sale, sale.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: FloridaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Not yetJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Not at this time

Plaintiffs and their attorney said untruthful things in the

Plaintiffs and their attorney said untruthful things in the lawsuit pleadings, declaration, and testimony in a hearing. Unexpectedly, the court ruled the hearing in Plaintiffs' favor. I didn't attend the hearing. Lawsuit was then settled and dismissed.I'm starting to design and write a software tool to automatically detect deceptions in pleadings, declaration, and testimony transcript, and thinking about selling this software tool. I heard there is much demand in the legal industry for such software tool. If I use Plaintiffs' pleadings, declaration, and testimony transcript files in demo for marketing purpose for this software tool, would it be ok (or if there are any legal risks)? Or should I use some other people's lawsuit files in marketing demo? How about publish a paper about this software tool? Thank you.
