A client plans to hire his 15-year-old daughter to work in their LLC and will pay her around $12,000 this year.
You should know that:
#1: Your daughter has a $12,950 standard deduction, which means she also pays zero tax on earned income up to that amount.
#2: Your single-member LLC is a “disregarded entity” for federal tax purposes and is taxed as a sole proprietorship (unless you elect corporate treatment). You enable “no Social Security or Medicare taxes” for your child and your business.
Paying her through payroll checks and filing a W-2 is essential. If you pay her 1099, she will have to pay self-employment taxes.
