Just to clarify, while it's legal for Microsoft to sue in Washington on its Nevada-based contracts, doing so further erodes their tax argument that they aren't in the software licensing business in Washington. Read the post for a full explanation.     For tax purposes, Microsoft reports that it’s earned its estimated $143 billion in software licensing revenue in Nevada, where there is no licensing tax. However, for legal purposes, Microsoft executes its licensing contracts so they are governed by and rely on the protections of Washington law and its courts (some regional contracts are governed by the ...
was, for a period of time, the wealthiest family in Europe. Estimating their wealth in today's money is difficult and imprecise, considering that they owned priceless art, land, and gold. With this monetary wealth, the family acquired political power initially in Florence , and later in the wider spheres of Italy and Europe. A notable contribution to the profession of accounting was the improvement of the general ledger system through the development of the double entry system of tracking credits and debits . Giovanni di Bicci de' Medici was the first Medici to enter banking on his own, and while he became influential ...
Online Collaboration Goes Legit | On the Commons
It is one thing to talk about the “virtual corporation” and online commons as new organizational forms. It’s quite another to have those forms be legally recognized. Yet in a little-noticed law enacted in June 2008, the State of Vermont has formally conferred “legal personhood” on online communities that wish to form limited-liability partnerships. The law was tucked into a bill called “Miscellaneous Tax Documents,” but the new virtual corporation law has enormous implications. It enables people to come together as virtual businesses, with dispersed partners who may live anywhere, and avoid the usual requirements ... market research, surveys and trends

Articles about Tourism Advertising - Orlando Sentinel
I AM writing concerning the article on tourism in the Feb. 24 Orlando Sentinel. It stated that Florida will be losing more than $355 million on tourist spending during the next year. The article further stated that these studies are expected to fuel efforts by tourism leaders to prompt the release of state emergency tourism reserve funds for an advertising campaign to combat Florida's image problems.It's appalling that the tourism leaders will be dipping into an emergency fund for an advertising campaign. Prompted by a dip in the number of visitors to Florida and months of pleading from the tourism industry, state ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Search for consultant smacks of cronyism
Here's something odd: Gov. Sean Parnell's administration is chomping at the bit to hire a $2 million consultant quickly -- very, very quickly -- to take a peek at any proposals from the oil industry or lawmakers to change Alaska's oil and gas taxes to promote construction of a gas pipeline. Did I mention the state guys want the consultant very quickly? The state's Request for Proposal by the Department of Revenue was issued June 17 to fill an expiring contract. Bids are due back by 1:30 p.m. June 30. That is a very short turnaround. The next day, July 1, the contract will be awarded and the new consultant ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
