Can a C-corp shareholder be paid as a subcontractor? I know they can take Dividends payment and be on salary but can they be paid as a subcontractor and report the income on a Schedule C?

That only works if there are enough gas stations with power between here and there for me to fill up my tank. I think I will just sit here in the dark. We have candles. Wife & I were joking about how to light the gas stove with electric igniter. Will the toilets still flush? ... I think we can entertain ourselves. My wife will be going through withdrawal without her sewing machine.
