Katy Trail Rock Island Spur Comments
Victory Shuttle & Taxi Service in Sedalia

Wonderful Employer! One man who works for them told my husband he drew a disabled pension and gets paid cash with no income taxes taken out, my husband works 2 part time jobs and is now trying to draw disability, if he gets his disability he is going to work for this company. Kudos to this Company!

Working two part time jobs and wanting to draw disability so he can go to work somewhere else?

How does being diabled fit into that equation?

You do reailze that I am (and the other working people in America) are paying his bills?

Do you also realize that with the employee not withholding taxes this makes our payroll taxes increase in future?? Leslie I don't think you thought this one out. This could put this company in deep water with the feds.

maybe they will be too busy discussing working while on disability, with her husband.

This lady is the perfect voice for life in the USA now. She serioulsly beleives that "They" or "The Government" owes her. It's sad that personal responsibility has been replaced by finding ways to beat the system. She, and her husband are 1) parasites, 2) the reason we need tax reform, 3) the reason we need entitlement reform. On another note, I hope to spend quite a bit of my free time on the Katy this year :)

Does this lady realize that the Katy was built largely with $ donated by greedy Wall St. bankers? Thank you Mr. Jones........

I originally thought this person had a beef with Victory Shuttle and was trying to get even. But maybe this has become the pervasive way in the USA--where's my free lunch.

apparently, not many of you know just how much disablity pays. not much. i believe it is less than 2/3rd's your normal pay. so before you go and start complaing about his pay and gettin a free lunch, check it out. you might not want it that bad after all. and no, i am not on disability. my hats off to this company for helping out a person who is on disability.

The comment is not about helping someone in need, it is about doing it honestly, not dishonestly.
posted Dec 20 2011 8:28AM - Jim, St Louis

jim, agreed. however, with that said, nobody, and i mean nobody can ever take a cent for helping anyone out without paying any taxes on it. since it is about honesty.

Anonymous, that is every bit as sensible as your other comments.

Anonymus, why do you seem to think it is fine to game the system. Disabled or not what the original post suggested was illegal.
posted Dec 22 2011 8:23PM - Jim, St Louis

i apologize to both jim and doug.
i am NOT attempting to game the system as was suggested. yes what was done is illegal, no one suggested it wasnt. i only suggested making a little cash under the table to help pay bills is against your liking. sorry i offended you.

so sorry my comments make no sense to you. if you understood them you would agree. my point was that if you were complaining about the disabled individual take a few bucks under the table, then you or anyone else that agrees with you can never ever take a cent for helping some one in need. whether it be gasoline , money, etc. that would simply be illegal also. so sorry it made no sense to you, like my other comments did.

again so sorry i offended the both of you.

Your logic is greatly flawed. Wiki says about "cash under the table" Unreported employment, often referred to colloquially as working or being paid under the table or cash-in-hand, is employment not reported to the state. This is often done by the employer or the employee in order to evade tax or circumvent other laws.

Lets see here. I repair your bike tube out on the Katy because you don't have a repair kit and are "in need" of help. You give me 5 bucks for helping you out. Nothing was done to circumvent the law or to avoid taxes. Helping someone in need, does not make one and employer. It makes them a nice person.

But your logic tells us that it was illegal for me to accept your $5?

There'll be some warm days soon. Perhaps a walk or ride on the trail for some fresh air is in order.

Anonymous you are just as sensible as ever.

I understand disability is a strain. However, "kudos" for an employer not paying taxes? So I guess I'm stupid for paying taxes? It's this attitude that puts a strain on the honest, law-abiding citizens that pay their fair share.

An employee may be defined as:

"A person in the service of another under any contract of hire, express or implied, oral or written, where the employer has the power or right to control and direct the employee in the material details of how the work is to be performed."

Not Anon, if I help a stranded anyone or maybe help a friend move (so they don't have to pay a mover) and they buy me gas and pizza, that is employment??!?? Good grief!

The IRS needs to check this so called company out for they do do this I know for a fact. They let their drivers not claim what they make ONLY their KCI (airport) runs are claimed. I have seen this. They even say they claim the airport runs. The company hire drivers who work for themselves on days they are off so the person working doesn't give the taxi company the cut they are suppose to. This has been seen also. This company is suppose to be christians but let me say that they are NOT. I know this for a fact how they have treated me plus alot of other fares they get, make people 45 minutes late to work and things like that.

My father told me that anybody who lies on their tax return has established themself as a liar and you should keep this in mind with any dealings.

I would like to respond to the above even though it has been a while back. The driver that made the statement (s) that started all this didn't work all kinds of part time jobs.
Lastly the company name has been changed to A + Victory Shuttle, we arw no longer ado
2Nd He/She was private contractor & was responsible for his/hers own taxes. Whether he/she did or didnot file correctly is between them & the IRS.
That driver no longer drives for the company.
The federal government does allow a person on disability to work & earn up to $700-$800 a month extra without loosing any disabilitybbenefits & that includes their monthly benefit amount.

I was thinking maybe the guy does not have a mastercard reader and 3.5% fee was too much to deal with in a very part time job. Well checks can be iffy so cash it is and he can and report it so he can deduct mileage on the van.

My bad, looked at the wrong posting date when I responded. Glad to honor Ron White's wisdom, did not know he monitored this site. Very impressive.
