I have been looking to expand my pool business. It is currently just me and my pool truck and I have been toying with the idea of adding a new route and hire someone to do it, about 90 pools per week figure 18 pools per day. Is there anything I have to do, I would assume there is to report that I have an employee or am I better hiring someone as an independent contractor? Is there not a lot of costs involved with having an employee, other then wages? Would I have to provide healthcare to my employee? This obamacare got me all confuses on whatís needed. Can all this be avoid if I just hire someone as an independent contractor instead and I just pay them in their business name (they could open up a corp for that sole purpose, I would even be willing to pay for that) I donít mean to come off an trying to cheat on taxes just want to keep the business going and possible expand.
