Don't Pay More Taxes Than You Owe
On Barter Transactions
There is no way for a barter company to
recognize what the tax nature of your deposited funds are, any more
than your bank can identify which of your cash deposits are taxable.
However, you should know there are five kinds of barter deposits
that are sometimes improperly taxed:
A taxpayer is permitted under the law to give any other taxpayer up
to $10,000 during a tax year with no tax consequences of any kind to
the donor or to the recipient.
2) Barter credits
received as loan repayments
If you lend barter
credits to another member the repayment will show as a credit on
your statement from your trade exchange…but they are not
income. The interest, however, whether paid in cash or barter, is
reportable as income.
3) Borrowed barter credits
Borrowed credits that you deposit into your account should not be
taxed any more than cash that you borrow from your bank or credit
union is taxable.
4) Barter credits purchased at
a cash discount
Barter credits purchased for cash
are not taxable as income.
5) Transfers from one
account to another
If you have two or more accounts
and move credits from one account to another, this will be reported
as if the credits came from a third party as income. Under this
scenario you would be taxed twice for the same income.

Avoid Personal Burnout & Frustration
By Timothy Bednarz, Ph.D.
Many leaders will associate the implementation of change in their
organization with elevated levels of stress, frustration and
anxiety. These pressures, combined with a typical staff reduction
requiring leaders to accomplish more, can lead to personal burnout.
It is important for leaders to understand that large,
overwhelming changes will typically shake up the entire organization
as wholesale modifications occur in the way business is conducted.
The process is time intensive and traumatic for everyone involved,
and people require time to recuperate after the event is over
While quick or frequent change can lead to burnout, leaders can use
the strategies outlined in this section to defend against burnout
and frustration — even in the face of ongoing change.
Part of the job
Effective leaders accept
that change is a normal function associated with their jobs. In this
way, change is no longer perceived as an event that threatens the
organization, but simply a normal function of everyday business
Managers embracing change will plan small,
incremental adjustments that help their organization slowly evolve
and adapt. As a result, the company will eventually see an increase
in productivity and efficiency. It takes a change in management
perception, to reduce both stress and pressures that once were
associated with organizational change.
rather than resist
When people oppose change in
their organization, they end up focusing their energy on resistance
rather than acceptance. This focus saps the energy required to
maintain productivity and effectiveness, ultimately leading to
On the other hand, leaders who accept and
anticipate change learn to harness its momentum to their benefit,
using that energy to enact change throughout the organization. Thus
producing positive outcomes and results.
When organizations implement far-reaching changes out of
necessity, it can be overwhelming. Many of these changes include
layoffs, which increase the intensity of the situation and
overburden the leader. However, when supervisors plan for ongoing
change, adjustments are made in small, incremental steps that allow
the organization to transform itself on its own terms. When
approached this way, wholesale organizational change is eliminated
along with the stress and intensity of the adjustments.
The incorporation of small,
incremental changes into daily activities allows the organization to
grow and evolve while simultaneously increasing productivity,
effectiveness and efficiency. This incremental nature of change
allows leaders to build it seamlessly into the organizational
Once the organization accepts change as a daily
occurrence, managers are less like to feel pressured — which
greatly reduces personal burnout from frustration and anxiety.
Leaders that learn to accept and
incorporate change into their daily responsibilities also learn the
value of experimenting with new ideas and concepts. They discover
that small changes can be tested with minimal impact, and lessons
can be learned from all successes and failures. These lessons are
ultimately incorporated into adaptations made by the organization.
Experimentation also helps supervisors reduce risks associated
with change. And less risk equals less stress, frustration and
anxiety — all of which are associated with burnout.
