Do you guys tax cis on the wages you pay them?
Taxman said @ 3:14am GMT on 31st Jul
They’re not wages, they’re rewards.

Second, long story short, yes they are taxed, but one would not be required to report them.

Woah. That last bit just blew my mind

Hey look at you! Accepting freely volunteered information that blows your mind? Now if you want to reward me you can (or not, your choice). Even if you chose to reward me I wouldn’t be your employee and it wouldn’t be wages. ;)

So what you're saying is, if i rework my consultant position then I don't have to pay taxes?
Taxman said @ 6:32pm GMT on 1st Aug
Pretty sure I implied you always end up paying taxes, even as a consultant or informant.

It's a fascinating read, but boy, could this article benefit from being about a fifth as long. At some point it's less article and more biography.

It is a very interesting article, but I'm at work, and it's L O N G.....

I was really surprised by how it played out.

I was certain it would be Hamburgler.
