"A tax loophole is something that benefits the other guy. If it benefits you, it's tax reform."
^That is true, I must've read a bit too fast. I guess I will have to see how I can do this. This job is normally paid on the spot after a days work so I will have to see how I can do this since I don't think anyone would want to wait for a paycheck in this type of job. Or I guess to hire them as part-time since I am not trying to really provide any benefits
Some states require you to pay worker's company insurance for independent contractors unless they have provided you with a copy of their insurance certificate showing they already have insurance. If you decide to go the route of independent contractors, have them fill out a W9 form, even if you do not think they will more than $600. It's easier to get the info up front than it is trying to chase them down for it at a later time should you need it.
What a great idea for a business! Just one question.....if you are mobile, where do you get the water from? Anyway, my suggestion would be to get regular employees and pay and keep records correctly. What are the rules to provide insurance if you hire part time? In my opinion, cutting corners always has a way of biting people in the butt. Charge more for the extra expense, but have piece of mind.......
