it's funny how you get all bent when you dont hear what you want... you cannot run a legit operation because, well your a minor. as far as taxes, if it's in your parents name you put them in a different tax bracket, plain and simple. can you buy cigaretts, booze, lottery tickets, gamble? no you say, well why not.. it's because you a minor.. if you cannot do the actions above, what makes you think you can run a company? in essence your parents will own it and be liable for it... like it or not, thats the way the river flows..
