    Mark, if I receive royalty income from writing books, would it make sense to set up a ROBS-owned corp. to receive the royalty revenue and pass as much of the corp. profit as possible (40% max most likely, per IRS 60/40 rule) to the ROBS in the form of dividends? On a personal tax return, I can’t report the royalties on Schedule E; they have to go on Schedule C, as they are derived from my work. It seems like a ROBS would be a good idea for this; am I missing something?
