    If Joe's area is like mine personal properrty tax is like a snake you didn't know was in the woodpile.

    Ours is on the business equipment, and you are not told you have to file it. You have to figure it out without knowing.

    The furniture, the computer, the filing cabinet, the workbench, tools, etc. All the stuff you have that is not inventory that you own for your business.

    Now you have to depreciate it and pay a tax on it's value.

    In my case it was only a few hundred dollars yearly, But larger concerns would have more stuff. Especially if you had a service organization with a repair shop.

    Just a PITA. If I didn't have a friend in a similar business, I might have unknowingly not paid it too.

    Notice (the plumber) says he's gonna BUY a BUSINESS that makes $250,000 a year. He doesn't mention how many employees it has or what operating/advertising/insurance/inventory expenses are a year. I'll bet he ends up clearing a lot less than $100,000 a year not to mention TAXES.

    All of those libbies in the audience are really laughing because the guy WORKS period! Why be a plumber, electrician, or whatever when you can just sit back and collect welfare under a socialist like BO!

    Good for Joe. A guy who is unlicensed as a plumber, who owes $1,100 in back taxes and he is going to buy the business he works in for $250,000. I wonder where he is going get the money? Sure isn't going to borrow it from a bank, not now days.

    Joe's employer wants to retire. He has mentioned to Joe about buying the business. It would be owner financed thru profits after the purchase, like most business sales. The Dems want to put the focus on Joe instead of Obama's bumble comment. "Spread the wealth". Wouldn't it be cool if the Obama lost because of a comment to a plumber?

    Jakeroo, you are proof that one doesn't necessarily need a license to work at a job. Or, are you in fact a licensed political analysist, mortgage loan official, judgmentalist? Regardless my friend, I was in the building trades for over 40 years. The company owner, or contractor is the required license holder. Although, I have seen a few licensed plumbers working on projects. It is in no way a prerequisite to obtaining employment in the trade, or a measure of the craftsman's abilities. Start up capitol, heck Joe might have a rich uncle willing to set him up in business. You just don't really know his situation do you. Please accept my humble apology if you truly are licensed to run down a man with a dream, trying to better himself. J.Woolsey
