    I know it was mentioned, and if I were the OP I'd look into it. It's not difficult, you can put an add free on CL, and you can find going rates on CL. I had two roommates when I purchased my first...

    A good, honest auto mechanic doesn't have to advertise as word-of-mouth will bring in more business than he can handle. Mine is the same.

    We have two small businesses:

    The only riots now are in the gun shops - we've been crazy busy all day. First customers were calling at 7:30 this morning.

    We moved more product before noon than we normally do in a month.

    A lot of things can fall under "disability". Typically when people talk about fraud & waste they mean the government program SSI.

    I think Kentucky is one of the states that exempts firearm purchasers from NICS, though they still have to fill out the ATF 4473. So maybe that's why he wants it.

    I adjust my withholding so I owe $100 in income taxes.

    I have no insurance so the fine is $700 (single) or $2000 (family). In theory I need to send the IRS a check for $800 or $2100. In practice...

    I think people do that because they're scared of being seen as pushy or intrusive if they simply decide to do what needs doing. For some people that may work, but I can see others resenting it.

    Isn't there a five-year "lookback" on that kind of transaction when applying for Medicaid? So, she may not even be eligible for Medicaid for quite a while if that happened recently.

    I don't, but expect most equine businesses have under 50 full-time employees so they wouldn't legally need to provide health coverage anyway.
