Hello and welcome,Did the owner of the corporation pay any unemployment taxes on their income to the state or federal governments (SUTA or FUTA)?
I own the corporation that PAID the subchapter S company. Since the Sub S was merely a contractor of services my corporation DID NOT pay any unempolyment taxes. And buy the way, the day that I terminated the contractor he broke into our office, stole our computer and downloaded the information on tour computer.

Please feel free to bookmark the following link so you can request me to answer any future legal questions you may have:
Just so that I am clear, I am somewhat confused with your reply. You said "there would be no basis to collect unemployment benefits, I am sorry to say". Since I do not WANT the contractor to collect unemployment on my company, why did you say that you are sorry to say? His inability to collect should be good news for me, shouldn't it? Bill
Hello again Tina,
The reason for my inquiry to you is that I must send a protest to the California EDD challenging this claim. Since the individual owner of the Sub S (and not the Sub S per se) has filed a claim with the CA ECC using his personal SS #, should I even mention the fact that I paid his Sub S or merely state that we never paid the individual?
