Dave Phillipson's insight:

It comes to the lesser of two evils.

Better advice?  NEVER CROWDFUND

It will only get you in trouble unless you are a non-profit.   Two of my friends are former SEC Commissioners and one happens to teach Law at George Washington.   The SEC & IRS send their attorneys to him for their continuing Ed Credits.     Because they are his students, they tell him what’s coming from their agencies.

A for-profit that accepts donations, must pay 50% in taxes to the IRS.  This isn’t being done.   They are just letting that pile up and they are going to start levying bank accounts.  They don’t have to make any announcements because the laws have been on the books and KNOWN for decades.

KickStarter & IndieGoGo aren’t culpable because they state in the agreements that you sign, that you are responsible…. but who reads those things, right?

Next, there is quite a bit of fraud in crowdfunding… people raise money, then never follow through.    You only hear about the big wins but for each dollar that makes it for good, there are $42 that go down the tubes and taken out of the economy.
