Is it ever ok for a sole proprietor or single member LLC to put themselves on their payroll? I've seen several sole proprietors & single member LLC's paying themselves wages. Shouldn't the payroll companies inform them that should not be done. Or is it ok???

Here ya' go, Susan.
If it's an SMLLC, by definition, but your client had intended for it to be treated as an s-corp, maybe it's time to have a discussion about the intention, accounting, operations, tax implications, as well as the way forward.

Have you then given them "the talk" and proper guidance and corrective action? This is your opportunity to be valuable to these people as a resource going forward.
