Someone get Isaac Hou an Accountant....
Ok, so this guy makes a living with some cool performance art/gymnastics which actually looks pretty cool. I'm totally fine with that. Just a quick question:
Is Isaac Hou aware of tax laws? I mean, he's handed a personal check for $2000 for a show- no deductions for Social Security, Medicare, etc. let alone federal, state and local income tax. No paperwork at all- just do your thing with your big metal hoop, here's $2000, take a break and you'll be doing another show in a few minutes.
I get that that Chase is trying to simplify all this, but I can see the IRS watching this ad and thinking "we've got to give this guy a call. He doesn't quite get how we do things around here. He can't really believe that he can just accept cash for payment without declaring taxes. Who does he think he is, President Trump?"
