Q: I want a company pay my business instead of me and then use those funds to so that I don't show as much personal income?
I first want to know if this is legal and if so how do I set this up
A: First and foremost, I must emphasize that I'm not a tax attorney, but I can provide you with some general guidance. The structure you're referring to may involve creating a separate legal entity, such as a corporation or a limited liability company (LLC), for your business. By having the company pay your business directly, the income would be reported under the business entity rather than your personal income.
