Jon Moxley On WWE Making Tax Time Difficult With ‘Independent Contractor’ Status

Jon Moxley is no longer in WWE, but he remembers those days well. Things especially got very confusing around tax time. This is why he needed to finally hire an accountant.

Renee Paquette has a new podcast called Oral Sessions. During her debut episode, she invited Jon Moxley onto the show where he discussed several subjects pertaining to WWE’s lifestyle, particularly when it came to money.

First off, Moxley made it very clear that WWE talent are not independent contractors. “You’re a f*cking employee,” Moxley stated, but of course, WWE doesn’t see it that way. His goal was to simply save as much money as he could for the future.

“When I was doing my taxes in WWE, because you’re an independent contractor – which is not true – you’re a f*cking employee. So, you have to pay your taxes. In the developmental first couple of years, I didn’t make

In ordinary times, a masked Santa Claus ornament might seem creepy and a sure retail loser. But as this pandemic-year holiday shopping season kicks off on Black Friday, Nov. 27, those strange trinkets are the best-selling item at New Orleans retail chain Fleurty Girl.

Coronavirus hasn’t created wave of Cuyahoga County foreclosures, though housing advocates brace for difficult 2021

CLEVELAND, Ohio – The wave of foreclosures that some housing advocates feared because of the coronavirus pandemic has not materialized in Cuyahoga County, by all accounts.

But those same advocates said they are bracing for an increase of people pushed to the brink of losing their houses, especially if federal lawmakers don’t pass a bill that provides stimulus payments to Americans, as well as more relief to people out of work.

Redfin policy makes selling homes in minority neighborhoods more difficult, new lawsuit charges

A lawsuit filed against real estate firm Redfin alleges that the company’s minimum home price policy discriminates against those living in communities of color in many metropolitan areas. 

“Redlining, and the residential segregation it causes, represents America’s oldest racist and discriminatory real estate policy. The fact that these actions are still occurring, let alone by a major corporation, demonstrates why we need strong civil rights protections now more than ever,” said Lisa Rice, president and CEO of the National Fair Housing Alliance (NFHA), in a statement.
