Note 6 – Due From Related Party


In January 2022, the Company determined that an employee had relocated in 2021 but their compensation had not been subject to the required tax withholding by the new jurisdiction. The amount subject to taxation included $155,624 of cash compensation and $1,413,332 of income associated with the vesting of restricted stock ("Stock Compensation"). In March 2022, the Company entered into a note agreement (the "Note") with the employee in the amount of $510,323, representing the estimated taxes owed by the employee related to the Stock Compensation. Under the terms of the Note, 104,166 shares of common stock with a fair value of $280,832, which had vested during calendar 2021, were withheld by the Company and applied against the Note. The employee has agreed not to sell or transfer 110,983 shares of common stock held at the Company's transfer agent until the Note is repaid. In addition, the employee is scheduled to have 20,833 shares of restricted stock vest monthly in calendar 2022, of which 3,000 shares will be withheld with the fair value of those shares applied against the Note. Any shares issued to the employee in 2022 will be held at the transfer agent until the Note is repaid in full. The Note matures on December 31, 2022 and will be repaid by the employee assigning that number of shares, held at the transfer agent, with a fair value required to repay the Note in full. The Company accrued payroll taxes of $596,120 at January 31, 2022 representing $510,323 owed by the employee, $31,604 owed by the Company, and $54,193 of estimated penalties and interest. The note balance totaled $225,539 at January 31, 2022. The shares held at the transfer agent had a fair value of $206,684 at January 31, 2022. The Company filed amended payroll tax returns, which included a payment of $544,057, on March 16, 2022.
