Should I Hire Family Members

Many business owners hire their children, their spouse, or other family members to work in the business. Sometimes this works out well; sometimes it causes problems. Let's look at the pros and cons.

  • Hiring your children. Hiring your kids for a summer or part-time job usually has more tax advantages and fewer drawbacks than hiring other relatives. The financial advantage is that if you're paying your child to do useful work, the business gets a tax deduction for the wages paid. Your child will probably pay little or no income tax, and the after-tax wages stay in the family. Also, if your child is under age 18 and your business is unincorporated, neither the child nor the business needs to pay federal payroll taxes. This exemption also applies to a partnership or LLC if the only partners are you and your spouse.

Tax Recordkeeping:  Some Tips to Make it Easier 

Are you sometimes overwhelmed and intimidated by the prospect of keeping records for federal tax purposes? Well, you are not alone. Here are some suggestions that should help you determine what to keep and for how long.

Normal statute of limitations. This is three years from the later of the due date or the actual filing date of the return. The statute period can be extended to six years if your income is understated by more than 25%. There is no statute of limitations if fraud is involved. Be safe and maintain the following records for seven years.


Your Home Could Provide Retirement Income

Did you know you can use your home to help pay for your retirement needs? For many seniors, their house is their biggest asset. If you're at least 62 years old and own your own home, you can use a reverse mortgage to convert this asset into much-needed cash.

With a reverse mortgage, the lender makes loan advances to you which don't have to be repaid until your death. Repayment of the loan and accrued interest would also come due if you sell the house or move, but you won't have to repay more than your home is worth. Depending on the type of reverse mortgage you apply for, the proceeds may be taken out in a lump-sum, in monthly payments, or made available as needed through a line of credit.
