    In looking into this sales tax thing, I found this website that breaks down what's happening with this in most states: https://blog.taxjar.com/economic-nexus-laws/ I don't know about the company, but the info seems well-referenced.

    FEATURED! Supreme Court: Online shoppers can be forced to pay sales tax

    Anybody found a solution to this? I found this news article (it doesn't clarify much): America’s New Sales-Tax Mess I also figured this thread needed a bump ;)

    FEATURED! Supreme Court: Online shoppers can be forced to pay sales tax

    Exactly. It's unenforceable...unless the state governments all make agreements with each other to collect and remit taxes for one another or something draconian like that....

    FEATURED! Supreme Court: Online shoppers can be forced to pay sales tax

    I've been following this today and it I think it sucks. Here is my question though: How will 1000+ taxing entities enforce this on me here in Texas? I pay the franchise tax, state registration (for inspection) for my business, and collect and remit sales tax for Texas customers. How is the State...

    Have you considered creating a honey brand and purchasing the honey of other beekeepers? You could still raise your own...but create a unique (local, organic, flavored, whatever) brand, obtain your product in larger quantities from various growers (if you can get them to produce the honey the...

    Dealing With Customers Pissed Off Over Delayed Shipments?

    I'm in the b2c e-commerce business. Any b2c business, regardless of niche, is really in the people-pleasing business. We have a seasonal product that we pre-sale every year. We have customers pay us months in advance. Because of this and the fact that many customers doesn't read the bold printed...

    NOTABLE! Freedom vs. Children

    This is an interesting thread. Are kids time suckers? Yes - they can be. I have my business structured so I can hang out with them as much as possible and so we can do things as a family other people can't do. But I get that that's not for everyone. To each their own, man.

    Ebay Warriors

    I had a recent nightmare experience with eBay. I don't sell on there (we have our own site) but I had an 11-12 year old account that was taken over. The people who took it over sold lots on it in a fast time frame...then I got billed for it. I got my money back, but only after 10 days of stress...

    NOTABLE! Preserving Wealth, My #1 Tip. Don't Get Married! (Or Maybe You Should?)

    I'm not entirely sure that's what's being reported in those links. I'm fact, if you read the details of this page ---> http://fee.org/freeman/detail/the-economics-of-marriage-and-divorce you will notice that it is per person net worth, and not household net worth. Other research shows that...

    NOTABLE! Preserving Wealth, My #1 Tip. Don't Get Married! (Or Maybe You Should?)

    There was no personal attack in what I said, @DreamsCameTrue. Marriage is in fact, according to research, correlated with wealth building. As with all correlation, however, it does not hold true 100% of the time. Please see the following in reference to the economic benefits of marriage from...

    NOTABLE! Preserving Wealth, My #1 Tip. Don't Get Married! (Or Maybe You Should?)

    That's funny! And sad for you dude. You have obviously never enjoyed a lifelong committed relationship that frees you to become your best self. That's what those old rich guys are saying. I'm sorry that people have bad experiences either with parents or in their own life with marriage. That...

    NOTABLE! Preserving Wealth, My #1 Tip. Don't Get Married! (Or Maybe You Should?)

    Not threatened at all. I just happen to be suspicious of the motives of people putting stuff out like that. Each person has their own experiences and ideals that guide them. Sorry for those who have had bad experiences in marriage but that isn't my experience nor the experience of millions of...
