    Reported assets of $3.2 million after $16 million windfall

    Joe Biden's financial disclosures showing he reaped a $16 million windfall when he concluded his second term as vice president while declaring assets of between $1.5 million and $3.2 million raises an obvious question.

    Where did all the money go?

    Just the News reported Biden's tax returns show he and his wife Jill earned $11 million in 2017, mostly on book and speaking fees, $4.6 million in 2018 and $985,0009 last year.

    But when he filed a federal financial disclosure form earlier this year to run for president, Just the News pointed out, the Bidens listed assets only of between $1.5 million and $3.2 million.

    Paul Miller of the tax firm Miller & Co. LLP, told JTN that if he were auditing Biden, there would be "questions."

    Miller estimated the Bidens should have listed about $9 million in assets in their most recent disclosure forms.

    "I am unable to document what he did with the difference of approximately $6 million. What else are we missing?" he asked. There is some vagueness in the federal disclosure forms. JTN noted.

    He lives pretty good for a humble civil servant, huh?

    Ukrainian Girls and China White don’t come cheap. Even at Cornpop prices.

    Anytime I hear "book & speaking fees" I think of the clinton foundation and you can guess where I start thinking from there.

    A better question might have been "where did all the money COME FROM?" and not so much where it's gone.... (Hunter's answer would be 'hookers and blow'.)

    Adderall and flash cards. $6 million worth. Joe's dementia is pretty daunting.

    It is the opposite. An S corporation election treats the corporation as a passthrough organization for income tax purposes. It converts corporate earnings to personal income. S corps don't have federal taxation at the corporate level. Each shareholder reports his/her proportional share of the corporate earnings on their personal income taxes. Then corporate dividends can effectively received tax free.

    Advantage is that it avoids double taxation. I.e. Once at the corporate level, then again as dividends are paid to shareholders.

    Disadvantages are that top marginal personal rates far exceed current corporate tax rates. Also, there are many more restrictions on who can own an S corp.

    That is why many business owners appear to be high income earners. They have to pay personal taxes on the earnings of their S Corp or LLC business whether they take profits home or not.

    Not that it matters, but I am a CPA (I don't practice public accounting, however).

    The FBI doesn't care. They didn't even care about the naked child pics on Hunter's laptop.
