Amber's finances - assumptions galore

I may be thinking too deeply here, but Amber might be trying to protect her money by making a business account. Becky and her family are grifting greedy moochers. In the event of a breakup they'd try to take Amber for everything she has. If the money's in a business fund and Becky's name isn't on the business, it would be harder for her to try to claim it as hers, especially since she isn't in videos anymore. Of course this assumes they would go to court over it and not just snatch the cash out of Amber's tacky purse.

I'm not sure who I want to win in this situation. If Amber keeps her money she'll still die of fatness. If Becky's family drains her dry, they'd maybe take a week to spend it all on restaurant food and worthless trinkets, then be back to where they were.
Nah fam. I don't see her as being intelligent enough to think ahead like that.
All she's thinking about is the next meal she's gonna shove in and makeup.

Even though, aren't content creators paid as contractors? That would mean she gets a 1099C instead of a W2. I don't know that she can do a straight up EZ with that. Maybe she can I honestly can't remember how that works.
I'm sure she's too lazy to do the bare minimum, even if they get 1099ed for that adsense coin (which they probably do), so whatever the 1040EZ equivalent is, that's what she'll do. Heck, it might even be an EZ. My accountant handles all my crap and I've happily not touched tax forms except to sign them for a couple of decades now, so I'm not really sure what's what these days.

The tax question really outlines how childish she really is. Most folks at her age have bought property or gotten married or had children, you know, something that necessitates an accountant. With her tax situation type deal and extremely low IQ it would behoove her to shell out the coin to have a professional handle it.

Ha. With how fucking cheap she is when she doesn't see an instant benefit to her? Unlikely, even though a good CPA is worth their weight in gold. I can see her eyes glazing over as a CPA or financial advisor tries to explain to her two brain cells the advantages of various things - for sure they'd recommend maxing out an IRA at least, having a savings, etc. Hell, even buying Ts or CDs, or index funds or something that would itself throw off interest or dividends. But I bet the second they suggested putting money away where she basically can't reach it for x period of time without penalties, she'd NOPE right out of there. Immediate gratification is her jam.

I don't necessarily agree with the property or children because I have neither but she should have an accountant just based on how much money she claims to be making. Pay an accountant to see them once a month so they can tell you how much you should be putting away for your taxes. I'm sure she has zero idea how much she should actually be putting away even though she SAYS she puts 25% away. If she's making 100k a yeah, I'm sure that isn't enough because 25% is for us poor folk and we usually get money back.

Oh, I completely agree. I should have mentioned that aspect. Any adult whether or not you have kids or property or whatever should, at least by her age and income and income source, really should be planning for the future. She wouldn't understand a word they said so it'd be wasted breath anyway, but again it just demonstrates her immaturity.

Right. Even if she didn't want a savings (ignorant but whatever), or a 401k (ignorant but whatever) at the VERY least, she should have life insurance. She doesn't love Becky enough to make her beneficiary but she could put down our chad Destiny and throw her and Dana a lovely wedding when she kicks the bucket.

I am not sure if she needs life insurance. Life insurance is needed to replace income for your dependent and I am not sure about her relationship with Becky. How would her weight affect the monthly premium she would need to pay? Finally, since she does not see health insurance as important enough, I cannot see her getting life insurance.

As one who garnered a 1099 living this year instead of traditional W2, well, "Self-Employment" tax is a bitch. We're talking over 13k just for that and everybody that's 1099 can expect that. Just another way to keep wage slaves on the W2 ticket.

Maybe she realizes it, maybe she doesn't. But ya gotta fork that over no matter how good or bad your business did for the year.

Point being, 13k is a lot of Torrid hauls and Oranjjje Cheeekin.

When I was on a 1099 I’d just put back a percentage of that in expectation of the tax ass fucking I’d receive. Our gorl doesn’t think that far. That’s probably why she went years without filing. Iirc she thought YT did it for her.

Specialist life insurance for people with particular health conditions is a thing, but I can only imagine an underwriter's face trying to work out the risk of insuring AL. Generally, lifestyles that result in certain imminent death tend to cause 'sorry, declined' responses from insurance companies.

Hold up... 7 thousand on Torrid? She wants us to believe she saves money, yet this is only one thing we’ve seen her blow money on. GTFO.

Can she somehow claim this as a tax deduction because she works on YT and needs clothes for her videos? Is she dumb enough to try it? I don’t know a thing about taxes, sorry.
I don't know if she can claim them as a tax deduction, but she has previously said that her haul videos make enough to earn back the cost of the clothes.

She could claim it on her taxes if she could prove she only wears them in her youtube videos. If she were to be audited and they find proof she wears them any other time, she's in trouble.

I think more organized YTers have a channel dedicated for try on, etc, so that it is clear that the income from that channel is dedicated to it. They also have a channel for other stuff. Many people watch both so it increases their revenues. Of course, this lazy cow could not be bothered and would try to claim it anyway.

She didn't lie in 4 years? :lit: Oh, sure, boo. Just as you are the queen of moderation, you are also the most truthful person, fuck off

This just asks for the channels making videos on her to make a video of what she lied about in 4 years
She actually did not lie. She said in an earlier video (denial & delusion) that she did not lie because she was in denial of the truth. so, technically she thought that she was not lying. Basically, she is pleading the insanity defence.

I'm not a CPA, but I've used turbo tax for business expenses, so clearly I am an expert /s

The tax deduction angle here isn't that she needs to wear the clothes to make the videos. I'm not sure about present tax laws, but it used to be that you could only deduct clothing you HAD to wear to work. For instance, if you had to wear scrubs, or work boots, or the clothing was integral to the job (as opposed to needing to dress office formal, they don't tell you exactly what you need to wear). As a content creator, if she was a furry, there's a decent chance she could declare her yiff suit or whatever they wear as essential to the job.

In the torid binges, the clothing is content. So just buying them is a business expense. No content, no channel. Not an exact comparison, but when she films her and the gang eating at the International House of So-Dee-Yums Grille, she can pick up the tab and claim it as a business expense. It was content, they talked about business (being in her video), it was a business lunch/dinner.

Muckbangers can probably claim a lot of their food expenses as business expenses, just a tiny version of the way the food network claims purchasing produce, staples, raw goods, whatever. Cooking youtubers can probably claim a lot of their cookware and serving plates.

It's no different than claiming ring lights, mics, computers, etc. as tools for work (though that gets messier with the depreciation schedule, best to have an accountant do that), and then the area she uses for her studio, if she claims the den, that's pretty massive, she can claim the percentage of rent and utilities based on the square footage of the studio.

But here's the thing: amber is much to stupid for these things, and her accountant isn't a mind reader, she can prompt for costs of business, but that's not going to trigger amber to think about the 7k on torrid. Niko Vomitcado is also too stupid, but he has a manager who probably keeps track of that and works with the accountant and makes sure he gets every deductible cent of every deduction for travel, those airbnbs, his set up, his muckbang meals, etc.

TL;DR: amber is too stupid to realize the hauls could be deductible cost of operation for a "content creator" like her. She's leaving dollars on the table all over the place (including not wisely and creatively monetizing her content, but that's another story)

Maybe this is no longer the case but I've heard anecdotes about how part of the reason a lot of musicians wore such crazy outfits in the '70s/'80s was that if the clothes were really ridiculous looking, they could deduct the expense for taxes since they couldn't "reasonably" be worn any time other than during their "work" (performances). Whereas if you're just wearing a regular looking dress, that's something you could wear whenever you want and it wouldn't be deductible as a work expense.
