HIDALGO COUNTY HERALD FRIDAY, OCTOBER 15, 2010 3 .Finance New Mexico Multilevel marketing is one path to job creation By LINDA RUCKEL, .Advance Tax Services Multilevel marketing (MLM) is one way an ambitious person can supplement his or her income or even create a full-time job during an economic recovery in which job creation isn&apos;t keep- ing pace with employment needs. An existing businesscan even use " MLM to expand its product line by leveraging existing business and personal contacts. What it is The people who make up this $28 billion-a-year industry are independent consultants who set their own hours and earn money according to the effort they're willing to make to sell the prod- ucts supplied to them by the par- ent company. Familiar names in the multilevel marketing indus- try include Shaklee, Avon, Amway, Fuller Brush, Herbalife and one of the newest, Scentsy. In multilevel marketing, products are sold by distributors in door-to-door contacts or at sales events in customers' homes. Some companies encourage top sellers to recruit others to be part of a sales force; in that way, the team leader supplements personal sales with a percentage of the money raised by other members of the team. While the multilevel mileu requires little startup money, distributors who build laxge sales teams must be able to sibilities that go with such a net- Work. What to look for Deciding what product to sell or company to affiliate with involves weighing how the op- portunity meshes with other busi- ness goals, in the case of an exist- ing business, and how appealing the product or service will be in the seller's market. Aspiring salespersons should first make sure the MLM company is legitimate and not a pyramid scheme. If the company seems to be making money by recruiting alone, it's probably a pyramid scheme. Multilevel mar- keting depends on selling qual- ity products and establishing a market. Pyramid schemes pay little attention to sales and focus on recruiting others ind making high-volume sales to these re- cruits. If the startup cost is substan- tial, that's a red flag that the com- pany might be a pyramid scheme. Genuine MLM companies ask for little startup money, and some may even be willing to buy back most of a distributor's unsold in- ventory. Changing status A multilevel marketer who's not already a business owner is considered self-employed. While that brings many opportunities, it also" comes with numerous ob- ligations, including the obliga- tion to file the proper tax forms at the state and federal levels. MLM distributors need to keep accurate records of inven-" tory, sales and deductible ex- penses. Many deductions -- which small businesses report on the Schedule C tax form -- are available to the self-employed, but the deductions have to be reasonable and necessary. Sup- plies, advertising, repairs, meals and entertainment, outside ser- vices, mileage or auto expenses, commissions and fees, insurance, travel, rents, postage and a home office are typical deductions. For more information on tax obligations associated with mul- tilevel marketing, attend one of the Small Business Development Centers seminars. The Santa Fe Small Business Development Center is sponsoring a seminar, "How Schedule C Can Get You in Trouble" on Oct. 20 at Santa Fe Community College.
