The Personal Holding Company Tax

9 pages. This paper delves into the history and current use for the little-known personal holding company tax, as well as touching on the legislation initiated to abolish it. The personal holding company tax is one that is rarely invoked. It was a provision that was passed in the 1930's in order to discourage rich families from incorporating assets to shelter their income. Incorporating a small business can in fact turn out to be an intelligent decision; however, some of the tax benefits have been reduced or eliminated by laws passed by Congress since 1982. Generally, only thirty percent of a corporation's dividend income is taxable. Find out more in this research paper. Bibliography lists 11 sources.

Three Women of Color in the West

A 5 page paper examining the statement, “Scholars have suggested the West afforded greater educational and employment opportunities for women of color.” It can be argued that this is true, but only in relative terms. The West did – and does – offer more opportunities for women of color in many ways relative to those opportunities available in much of the Eastern Hemisphere. The reasons, however, likely have more to do with more developed economies in the West and more opportunity being available in general. The experiences of Era Bell Thompson, Fabiola Cabeza and the fictional Lalu Nathoy illustrate the point. Bibliography lists 3 sources.
