''You will only have to pay tax if you earn more than £6,475 in the tax year (6 April 2009 to 5 April 2010). This works out as £125 a week, or £540 a month. ''

This includes students as well. No dodging the income tax!

NO

the sponsor doesnt take out taxes.
The sponsor pays you 1000
he then records that on HIS taxes so he doesnt have to pay taxes on it, and sends you a form that sates he paid you $1000 in the past year (usually during tax season). You are responsible for paying taxes on that.

You have to pay taxes if you get over 600 in a lump sum i believe

Ok, so then I'll just have to contact the sponsors, work out the W9 forms, and then pay taxes on my own.

Thanks for the help, cleared up a lot :p

Hahahaha, NICE Watchmen quote. I watched the movie then read the novel. Both were great.

As for me, Cats are schizophrenic greedy little fuckers who need to be kicked as often as possible. Dogs will actually return the favor of food and shelter with love and companionship. Cats will just shit and puke all over the place and watch like you're their bitch while you clean it up.

God I hate cats...


Ignorance is bliss.

Why does it have to be one or the other? I mean, I'm much more of a dog person, but cats have their redeeming qualities. Pros and cons to both (ie. you don't have to walk a cat)!

Has anyone seen The Yes Men: Fix The World? If you want a documentary which will make you laugh and furious at the world at the same time, I thoroughly recommend it.

Woo! Source codes!
I almost failed to get an order in on time; my girlfriend called me while I was scrambling around and trying to decide on how much I would donate, who to, etc.
Thank goodness they added an extension!

The point is it's so cheap you can buy it whatever you can afford, but they won't beat you up if you just send the files along. So yeah, if you make a donation of $30 it can be on behalf of you and your friends or whatever, just make sure you give at least a few $ to cover the downloads :P

Well I was also saying; sending a/the game(s) to someone on here if they missed out.

Absolutely, in his prime he was one of the best players in the world, so he has nothing to prove. Ok, he just got sacked, but it was his first full managerial role.

I saw the full thing live on Sky Sports News this afternoon, he gave them coffee and then posed for photographs for them. He was smiling all the while.

It's pretty rare you find some famous who is also a true gent, and even rarer to find a footballer who has actual class. Zola knows what it means to be a man.

I think you would have actually had more links in that post if you instead linked to every time you have posted in this thread linking to those submissions.

On cats, why the hell is mine cleaning? She just started grabbing up and sweeping all of the dirt near the back door into a neat little pile.
That cat has OCD. Or, maybe it's because she's female.

Zola is the man.

Just try to find a sports star in America that would do that. All we seem to have here is sports celebs who cheat on their wives, get caught up with trollops at meat market clubs, or assault reporters.

They damn sure aren't bringing the press and paparazzi coffee. Believe it.

Now you have no reason not to try Portal.

"I have a reason," some of you are probably typing into an angry email. "You see, sir, I own a Mac."

Well guess what: For the first time ever, Portal is also available for the Mac.

brb, d/l portal.
