Questions about Knowledge Investor?

It's amazing seeing all the reservations (over 50,000 and counting) adding up for the new Knowledge Investor product!  (To read about it, go here).

I think this is going to be nothing short of amazing... and we're all counting down the days and hours until it launches! 

My apologies go out to everyone that has sent me questions!

I am so sorry! My inbox is full of unanswered emails, and I'm having an impossible time trying to keep up!

@johnny!... you cant believe it... when reservations were open at the exact time i refreshed the page.... and reservations granted were just 9... and when i clicked on "make your reservation" i got 564 number!... it was in a microsecond that all those reservations were made! well still i guess i'm lucky coz more than 50,000 reservations have already been made!
i have two questions for you:
1) Can i use my earnings that are "Not Yet Matured" for investing?
2) What do you think how much time(days) will it take to reach my number i-e:564?
thanks
-OH NO!

Hi JC,
when I made reservation, Fanbox blacked out, I had to wait till I can open fanbox again. Any way, I have my reservation now that's important.
I have read your post about the method of investment, I think I understood till now, since I was the one who didn't get any earning in your example :((, I was to greedy I guess in your story :-p.
Thanks JC, for being here for us. X

I also have my reservation already but when can invest?

38 months ago

@see hei... there are 5 more days to go in the official launch of the knowledge investment product.... after that you can invest as soon as your reservation number is called!
-OH NO!

38 months ago

@ OH NO: Yes, those first few minutes were absolutely crazy!

1) Yes, for investing, you can use any funds that are not fully (60 day) matured but they must have matured for 30 days.

2) You will obviously be one of the first... I don't know exactly how fast it will count up but it will be quick.

@ See Hei: As Oh No says, Investments start in 5 days from now -- next Thursday.

@ Alsha: By investing, you can choose to invest in people, knowledge areas, blog posts, Ads and charitable causes -- or you can select to have FanBox choose for you.

Based on your choices, you are funding those people's Ads; or Ads in those knowledge areas; or ads promoting those blog posts; or ads pointing to blogs that support those charitable causes.

It is very interesting.

I'm just wondering one thing... Since we are investing in either someone else's ads or the new system, will there be a new tax form to fill out and submit as this is a different category than blogging.

@ Smartest Angel: The same tax form will work; just lump all your earnings (minus your expenses, such as how much you invested in your ads or investment portfolios) into it.

Don't forget other expenses such as your rent or mortgage (if you work from home), and other expense that enable you to earn on FanBox. (Obviously consult a tax adviser because I am not one).

Each person is responsible for learning, or highering a tax consultant legally licensed in there area to learn what they personally are responsible for.

Although good basic advice, each country will have different tax codes etc on earnings and home business. IF you are serious about this and are making over, $10000 a year( last I checked in BC Canada a small business does not need to claim if under this, It may have changed) What is your country and areas laws? then you should be able to ask a local tax person or 'take your chances'. Education is a good thing.

i was in fanbox before, its totally different now and i like it more better, thanks JC(* *)

JC... The traditional capital gains tax rate is 28% vs. ordinary income taxed at whatever tax bracket the earner happens to fall into.

I am going to try the investing when it comes online, but I wonder if at some point whether I might get a letter from the IRS stating that not only am I ineligible for earned income credit as a result of making too much from investment income, but also that I owe back tax, penalties, and interest for not filing the income as investment income.

Does fanbox know for sure whether or not this will be treated as ordinary income vs. investing income?

NICE EDUCATIONAL POST

I have no idea about that, @smartest angel. Talk to your tax advisor. An opinion: Despite the product name, discuss it as an Ad purchase, because that's what it is.

ok this is the interesting part for all. When does the investment return matures to cash out???

38 months ago

@strange out
as per my information there should be at least 25 to cash out.

@Twilight: If your "stuck" portfolio is "advanced", it will not necessarily utilize all or any of your money.

Go with the "Simple" when asked "Who or what do you want to invest in".

@Krunal: Please write to customer service so they can have someone review your question. (I don't have any access to your private account).

@Strange: Like all earnings, your investment proceeds can be cashed out 60 days after the month you earned.

So far, zero dollars of my portfolio has been utilized. Is there a way to encourage it to be utilized? For example, should I tell all my fans (and the people in whom I invested) to do something specific to use my investment?

Thanks JC for the response. Great to know when we could cash out our investments. Thats exciting !!!
