Do We Have To Pay FUTA Payments
We have an LLC being taxed as an SCorp. My husband is 70% ownership and I am 30% ownership. In our state we was able to opt out of the state unemployment paying but we are told that we have to pay FUTA to the federal govt at the 6.2% rate. We called the IRS and asked them if we had to pay the FUTA since we are the owners of the LLC being taxed as an SCorp and the one I was talking to said that we did not have to pay FUTA because we was the owners even though we was being paid a check for working and would receive a W2. He then asked his supervisor and he said that we did not have to pay as well. A friend of ours works for the IRS and emailed a fellow worker that handles that aspect for the IRS and she says that we have to pay FUTA. Both parties work for the IRS but they both gave us conflicting advise of what we needed to do. Do you have any idea what we would need to do so as we won't get into any trouble when it comes to this situation? Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
