Nobody likes paying taxes, but something brainwashed Amway Ambots fail to understand is that paying taxes is a sign that you’re successful and profitable in your career. To sum it up simply, make two columns: income and expenses. Total them up. If the income total is higher than the expense total then yay business is going great. But oh shit you got to pay taxes on that income. But that’s a sign of success being profitable in your business. Then the reverse is that the column with the expenses total is higher than the income. Oops business isn’t going so good and for some businesses it takes awhile for the income to grow or maybe its been a bad business year. When you have more expenses that you can write off against your income then you’ll get a refund at tax time. Damn! Business is the shits.
Or if you’re a dumb fuck Amway Ambot you brag you’re getting a tax refund which is pretty much what is taught at Amway meetings that’s the secret to making money in Amway. You write off EVERY Amway expense yup all this shitty food bars and vitamins and the cat piss energy drinks and Communikate and books and tickets to functions and hotels against the income from your real job and you’ll get a refund. So that’s why you hear Amway Ambots lying about how business is going great and at the same time bragging about how they got a tax refund. Bunch of lying scamming fucking Amway assholes.
Uncle Sam disagrees that the only way for an Amway Ambot to make money at their scam is through a tax refund. AUDIT!!!! I mean the IRS has a whole handbook dedicated to Amway IBO’s for their staff to consult because the IRS has determined Amway is an expensive social club and the cult followers have no chance of making money selling soap and snake oil. Does the IRS have a whole handbook dedicated to McDonald’s employees or Chipotle staff? Unlikely because they’re probably not lying scamming tax cheats like Amway Ambots. What does that tell you. There are cases published online about how Ambots are getting audited through scamming on their taxes. And when you’re considering what expenses you can write off, Uncle Sam doesn’t count groceries and household supplies unless of course that’s the nature of your business like you run a restaurant or take in laundry for a living. And even those types of business are looking for ways to keep their costs down and wouldn’t buy overpriced shitty Amway products. So if you can stick it in your mouth and swallow it, don’t expense it on your taxes or you’ll be up shit creek.
I also want to say another scenario for legitimate business owners - not Amway scammers with their pretend business - is that you can get a good accountant and a good financial consultant and with the right investments and write offs you can bring your taxable income down as much as possible and pay less taxes. That’s mostly what real business owners worry about it. How they can pay less taxes.
The assholes in our Amway upline told us that everything to do with “the business” is tax deductible.
Our upline even said our dog food is tax deductible because our dog guards the house where we have Amway meetings.
Now does everyone remember how you can tell when an Amway Ambot is lying? …. Their mouth is moving!
We were told that all Amway products we buy are tax deductible. I seriously doubted that and so did our accountant whose services we use for our legitimate business. The upline made it sound like anything and everything about Amway products and tools is tax deductible and we’ll get our money back in the form of tax refunds and therefore its all free.
For some people this makes it easier to keep shelling out money if they’re given the hope that it will all be returned at the end of the year in the way of a tax refund. To hear upline tell it, this business, if nothing else, is a great tax shelter.
Uncle Sam might disagree.
This is a good example of why its not a good idea to take everything the assholes in the Amway upline says as gospel truth especially in areas that aren’t of their expertise. A person working a J.O.B. as an unskilled laborer or slinging burgers while walking the Amway path to financial freedom (LOL!) is probably not the best expert on what is and what is not a legitimate tax deduction especially if they've never hired the services of a professional accountant. You know an accountant who went to a real business school. Not some jackshit fucking Amway asshole who’s a pretend accountant because he got a degree at Amway University and that qualifies him to give pretend financial advice to dumb asses running pretend Amway businesses.
Fortunately Ambot took the counsel of our knowledgeable, experienced accountant instead of his upline when it came to acceptable tax deductions.
As our accountant tells it to us - save all receipts except for the grocery bills and they can write them off. That would disqualify anything edible/consumable that Amway sells as a tax write off.
That was contradictory advice from the assholes in our Amway upline. They told us to buy Amway drinks and food bars and vitamins because they have high PV/BV.
The same items our accountant tells us that we can not claim on our tax return because they fall under the grocery category.
Use your own judgement on this one. Fortunately Ambot did. Our upline were a bunch of scammers and liars as they shoved the Amway business opportunity down everyone's throats. I disregarded everything they said anyway and am sure glad I didn't listen to them try to scam us about legitimate tax deductions.
So the moral of the story is don’t take tax advice from a lying scamming fucking Amway asshole.
