I have an LLC partnership with 2 other people (husband and

I have an LLC partnership with 2 other people (husband and wife).We have not written any papers regarding this business.We have only filed 2015 taxes as 40/40/20, I being one of the 40%We have a full herbal apothecary, tea bar and fair good boutique.I am the herbalist and manufacture all of the herbal products sold in retail and for the tea bar.I have not received a manufacturing credit until January 2016 of 205 of sales, and split profits. We have been in business legally since January 2015 through tax.I started my business in 2007 and open a retail apothecary in October 2012.My partners opened their fair trade boutique in April 2013.We connected our business next door in July 2013, and i was receiving only a percentage of sales of herbs and getting paid $2000/mo for running the store until January 2014. In January 2014 we tried combining our businesses, though only on a handshake agreement (no forms signed). I continued getting paid $2000/mo, as did the wife partner, by her husbands LLC business as a private contractor for a few months. We were then buying everything together as one business. We borrowed 10k for more fair trade merchandise, which we then ended up paying ourselves $4000/mo (split between 2) with the profit and cost of goods and paying all the business expenses from June 2014-March 2015. We then relocated and invested in a Tea Bar at the new location.We kept changing the business model. We were open May 1, 2015 in the new location starting as a co-op. It lasted 3 months before the husband partner did not follow through with the co-op and asked that we go back LLC. From there we set up a COG Account, opened a bank account for all of us as a single business as co-owners. We have only invested in some of the fair trade goods, and have kept the herbal goods up to stock.The business is paying all expenses as of now. However with very little profit to split between us all, and myself manufacturing the herbs, and not getting any more for the the extra work needed, I have decided to pull out.We are now having trouble deciding how to split the business:The husband partner is wanting to go back to a cooperative model and is expecting me to just hand over the business. they want me to give them the business and only take 40% of all the inventory. The husband expects to get his other business paid back for all the money he has paid out and the wife expects the 10k borrowed to be paid back as well. I am only asking for the apothecary that I started with and my supplies needed to continue my herbal business.Being we have not signed any LLC agreement paperwork, we are unsure how to fairly and legally handle the split.Any information would be appreciated.Thank you,Stephanie

A friend of a friend is interested in hiring an employee from

A friend of a friend is interested in hiring an employee from abroad (specifically, Nigeria) to do some work for a site. The potential employee will be telecommuting: the employee will not be relocating to the United States. My question is, aside payroll, state, federal, and international taxes, are there any other taxes the potential employer needs to be mindful of? To reduce tax, could the employer use a 1099 and treat the employee as a contractor? Thanks!

Again,I am the plaintiff in an unlawful lien sale. I

Hi again,I am the plaintiff in an unlawful lien sale. I got my motion to compel discovery today and they actually produced their 'detailed inventory' as required by law but the buyers name was redacted.Defendants council said they had called the buyer the buyer doesn't want to contact me, the buyer bought in excess of 150K of my property for about 800 and said a month after the auction to the defendants that he had already sold everything.They now have 20 days to produce on my original discovery request and I know they are not going to give me the buyers name.I suspect collusion between the defendants and the 'buyer'I want to depose the 'buyer' but I want to have him investigated first, so I need his name and they sure don't want to give me his name.Should I request the joinder of the 'buyer' as a defendant?Is there another way I can compel disclosure of a person who claims legitimate ownership and Does Not want to be contacted by me ????What Theroies of law apply on this?Thanks,David
