Leigh Bortins, founder and CEO of Classical Conversations argues that her $1M+ after tax income is not enough. She appears to think that she deserves a tax break. And she implies that cutting her taxes in half would allow her to hire an additional 10 employees.

Leigh Bortins, for example, owns a startup business selling homeschooling education curriculums and providing seminars for families. She files it as an S-Corp, meaning her business income is taxed at personal rates.

Bortins reports $1 million to $2 million in profit on her tax return each year, and she said the nearly $1 million she paid in taxes this year on her 2010 income could have allowed her to hire 10 more employees (at an average salary of $50,000) and she still could have given $500,000 in taxes to the government.

I guess they teach Voodoo Economics at her “school.”

How many homeschoolers does she have to scam into buying her crap to make that much money?

Wait, she made a million, and then PAID a million? Something in that statement does not make sense.

Yeah. Total bullshit. To pay $1M in taxes she’d have had to earn (profit) close to $3M and have a crappy accountant.

Think her highly profitable HS curriculum includes math?

I think someone is badly in need of a remedial Math Course and they certainly need to hire a competent accountant.
