Thank you for taking my question. I was wondering if you

Thank you for taking my question.I was wondering if you could help determine if a lender needs to recognize an interest income every year on the following specific loan agreement:1. The lender is a cash basis taxpayer who lends X amount of money to a foreign company. There is a signed loan agreement between the parties. The arrangement is not a trustee or any mutual fund agreement – It is strictly a loan agreement.2. The interest rate is based on the ability of the foreign company's investment success. There is a specific formula. For example, if the foreign company invests in a specific stock and the stock yields capital earning, then the interest shall be equal to the return generated by the investment minus 1% of the total asset invested in the stock. To clarify, the investment is made by the foreign company and not the lender. The relationship between the lender and the company is solely via a loan agreement. The lender doesn't have any stock ownership in the foreign company.3. There is no stipulation in the agreement that calls for payment each year. In other words, in accordance with the loan agreement, the foreign company can wait several years, accumulate the earned interest payment (from the investments), and then pay a lump sum amount to the lender, based on the foreign company's discretion. The only two requirements to disburse the principal and interest to the lender are:a. Upon full repayment of the company to the lender of the principal sum plus all interest accrued.b. Upon the default of the foreign company.My question: if the foreign company earns capital gains and does NOT pay any interest to the lender in a specific year, does the lender need to report any taxable interest income in the year the foreign company earns it? Or, can the lender wait until the foreign company actually pays (wires the money) him the money and only then report it as income (due to the cash-basis rule)?Additional information: The taxpayer files taxes as a US tax person.Please help

I applied for a Heath Insurance Marketplace plan in Utah for

I applied for a Heath Insurance Marketplace plan in Utah for 2016, and was approved for a sizable federal tax credit. I put on my application that my estimated 2016 income was $40,000. I was finishing graduate school and expected to find a new job, but had not received any offers yet. Well, I did get a job, but it started later than I expected. I now have insurance through my job and have canceled my marketplace plan as of October. Making some rough calculations, my 2016 income will be about $28,000, just short of the poverty level of $28,410 for a family of five (which mine is).If I had put $28,000 as my estimated income when I was applying, I would have been rejected. Now I am worried: if my income is short of the poverty level, will they make me pay back the few thousand dollars in subsidies I received? I tried calling the HealthCare.gov people (twice), but they won't answer: they just read me a statement that may or may not apply to me and won't clarify.If they are going to make me pay it back, will it help if my wife withdraws some money from her 457 (and thus has to report that as income) to increase our income above the poverty level? We don't want to do that unless necessary, however, since our marginal tax rate is probably high due to EIC.

Thanks for the response. I'm setting up a Tech Support (over phone and online) business that would provide the support all over the country including CA . Does that require me to re-register the company and what kind of taxes does the Tech Support operating from Nevada would attract (in terms of Sales Tax / Service Tax ) ?
