Hey guys, before you throw me in the lions den, understand I am COMPLETELY clueless in the whole employee deal.. My business doesn't make a lot of money. Pretty much just enough for some spending cash, gas money, equipment repair, and after a month or so, new handhelds. I can also afford to pay somebody to help me. I DO have a business license, so I am legal, but I don't want to have to pay workers comp and the like... YET. So can I report that I am paying a subcontractor? Or would the IRS eat me alive? haha. Like I said, I'd rather not fill out all the forms and throw money at this when I don't really have an AWESOME income.. I will accept any and all advice!
