In my last post I had written about the problem with month-over-month growth rates. 85, years 000 in MRR within one. 10x that amount in the next half of the year! Click to check out the tool here. The first one is dependant on linear growth. It just requires the total online new MRR that you want to add throughout the year and assumes that you’re adding 1/12th of it every month.

The second one is based on an exponential development assumption, i.e. it assumes that you’re growing at a constant percentage development rate on a monthly basis. The third alternative, which I’ve called “Happy Medium”, has a rise curve that sits between your linear and the exponential option. You can see that well if you have a look at the charts below the numbers.

IRS didn’t demonstrate that the taxpayer’s Amway activities weren’t continued for income. Deductions for expenses related to Amway activities were allowed only to degree conceded by IRS: taxpayers failed to substantiate expenses more than that amount. At trial, respondent contended for the very first time that petitioner’s Amway activities weren’t involved in with the essential profit goal under sections 183. Such new matter requires that the responsibility of evidence is positioned on the respondent.

Sometimes it is better to be lucky than good. If in its deficiency notice the IRS asserts that you didn’t have a profit motive, it is up to you to prove that you do. In this full case, the IRS raised the problem later, which shifted the burden of proof. The IRS couldn’t prove that they didn’t have an income motive.

Amway distributor was allowed to deduct expenditures for travel, incentive prizes, and seminars: expenditures were normal and necessary. Deductions were allowed in part for food and care expenditures and were rejected for gift expenditures, because the taxpayer didn’t completely substantiate promises. Another earn for an IBO. Hooray. Too bad they didn’t do a much better job on substantiation. Taxpayer wasn’t engaged in Amway distribution activity with a profit objective.

As to the Amway distributorship fee, petitioner didn’t show that he conducted his Amway affairs regarding the a trade or business or an activity engaged set for revenue. Taxpayers’ Amway activities weren’t a trade or business and weren’t involved in for income but were performed primarily to acquire tax deductions and credits; business expenditures, investment credit, and child care credit rejected. Taxpayers’ (couple) activities weren’t continued in a businesslike manner, they both had full-time jobs, and they had very little success in obtaining other distributors or offering products.

Taxpayers got become Amway distributors and claimed deficits predicated on business deductions and credits. Q. Just how many sales did you make in 1980? 5 values, because we did not get any new people to arrive, you see. We just mostly went in for ourselves and get the other folks arriving in with us then. Q. Are you still in the Amway business?
