They prepare their own checks. This person(the manager is not cooperating or even returning my phone calls. Should I contact the IRS and let them know she had me paying her employees under the table to protect them from violating any immigration laws. The only reason I had the business under my name was when I first started working there she asked me to help one of her main workers who was doing a lot of side work to get a business license because he didnt speak english very well so I did and the only way I could do it that day was to put myself down as his silent partner and of course I did it because I wanted to keep my job and show them they could depend on me. But now that I dont work there Im afraid of what could happen to me. I do have all the invoices she gave me with the "payroll check" instructing me how much to pay each person. I did this every two weeks for over a year , i did not receive any compensation for this.
no I have not should I ?
