IRS lets employers come clean on contractor payroll taxes
Bloomberg    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The Internal Revenue Service is giving companies that have been misclassifying employees as independent contractors a chance to pay a fraction of back taxes to avoid interest, penalties and audits for previous years. Under the program announced by IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman, U.S. companies would have to agree to treat the workers as employees going forward and pay 10 percent of the previous year's payroll taxes. The program is open to employers of all sizes, though Shulman said he is trying to encourage smaller businesses to participate. More

Bloomberg    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Stephen Diggle, who co-founded a hedge fund that made $2.7 billion for investors in 2007 and 2008, set up a family office to manage the millions in fees he earned instead of entrusting his wealth to private bankers. "It was fairly demonstrably clear that there was a very significant problem of alignment of interests by private banks and their customers," said the 47-year-old founder of Vulpes Investment Management, whose Singapore-based family office has invested in hotels in Japan and farms in Uruguay. "They ceased to be custodians of people's money and they became salesmen." More

GOP shifts away from payroll tax cut
The Boston Globe    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
As applause broke out in the House chamber, Scott P. Brown rose to his feet to join an ovation for President Obama.
