I own a company(OldCo) that had its assets purchased by a new

I own a company(OldCo) that had its assets purchased by a new company(NewCo) that I have a minority stake in. I am the CEO(employee) and Board member of the NewCo. The OldCo was hit with a liability that came up under NewCo. Since OldCo doesn't have any money in it, and all tangible assets are gone, I have to pay this NewCo liability out-of-my-personal- pocket.Here is the big question. Since there is no advantage or benefit involved in this liability payment (or expense) CANT I completely skip a payroll check payment from NewCo to me personally, and apply the funds to a liability of OldCo without paying taxes personally?Doesn't seem like a difficult request since there is no benefit - why should there be tax liability?

My family member just turned 62. Social Security has told

My family member just turned 62. Social Security has told him he is eligible for $N per month at 62 and $Y at full retirement age.Scenario 1) He wants to stop working right now and live off savings/interest income etc (so no salary and hence no further contribution to social security) but does not possibly want to draw his benefits right yet and maybe one year later he may want to start social security benefits.Will he get AT-LEAST $N he is eligible at 62 or Will the $N he can get at 62 be reduced since he did not contribute from age 62 to 63 (for the sake of this ignore the fact that he gains a small percent due to the one year delay start) (he is from a foreign country and has worked in USA only 18 years)Scenario 2) He works till 63 but makes less income in this last year than what he made age 61 to 62 will the $N that he was to get at 62 get reduced as his final year income (age 62 to 63) was less than the income for age 61 to 62 (as i mentioned he is from a foreign country and has worked in USA only 18 years)
