I see several sole proprietors or single member LLC's putting them selves on their own payroll. They insist on collecting wages, paying employer taxes and getting a W-2 from their own business. Is this not legal and should they be told take themselves off payroll.
You previously asked this very same thing, here:
Did you read the info you were given, there? You don't need to keep asking; we are the same people as last month.
"Level Up" is a gaming function, not a real life function.
This question keeps coming up here. For example, see
Is it legal? I'm trying to think of what law is being broken, or what tax is being underpaid. If an Executive Order were issued to allow this, would anyone object? I think that Schedule C filers are doing it because it's easier for them to keep current on their personal tax obligations that way. I don't think IRS is opposed to people wanting to avoid delinquencies.
But maybe John Smith is thinking that a W-2 from JS Enterprises is an easy way to avoid questions from lenders who don't like dealing with Schedule C filers. Is it fraud if a loan application states someone is an employee, rather than self-employed?
"..They insist on collecting wages"
Then I would *insist* they exit out of my professional life.
