i am going to be paying two guys under the table this year, combined totalling $23/hour, thats like $35,000 for the year. i need to find away to hide this for my taxes? do you guys know of any little short cuts that i can use as expenses or what not to hide the 35000 im expensing for labor? how do you guys cut corners on taxes? im not looking to cheat my taxes, but for instance i can put 20% of my income into a tax free mutual fund....stuff like that. help me out, this is only my second year and need to become more knowledgable in this category.
