My father was an attorney. He used to say "free legal advice is worth just what you pay for it."
I think there are likely a few very knowledgeable tax folks on this forum (with relevant professional certifications) that can provide useful advice, such as what are the right questions to ask, who should I talk to, where should I start, etc.


And I wouldn't call it "free". The information that Steve and many many others have provided on this forum is of incalculable value. Call it the barter system.

I think I've gotten the answer I was looking for and it's 6 of one, half a dozen.......


I'm part of a group of musicians hiring an attorney to represent us in objecting to a lawsuit settlement. To raise his fee, I've set up a donation site w/Paypal (like a GoFundMe page). No one can say with 100% certainty whether the IRS will consider those donations as income to me or gifts. I'm crossing my fingers!

Ask your attorney if maybe he should be the one whose name is on the go fund me.
