Can I Hire Family at a Small Business & Pay Cash?

by Chris Hamilton The Internal Revenue Service considers cash as taxable, regardless of whether a family employee earned the cash from tips or compensation for regular or infrequent work. Small businesses owners can hire their family members as independent contractors if they need only specific jobs completed, a method that allows business owners to avoid withholding on and reporting cash wages under $600 per family member per year.

The most common of these SBA loan programs is the 7(a). Here’s what you need to know about them. What is a 7(a) Loan? A 7(a) loan doesn’t come directly from the SBA.
