Hi and welcome to Just Answer! I'm happy to help with your tax questions. Feel free to interject at any time if you need clarification.
When you collect the payments from the groomer's customers, are checks payable to her or to you?
payable to her
If you receive cash, do you pay the cash to her directly or do you deposit it first into your bank account and include that in her check?
pay directly to her
are you still there?
I'm still here ...typing out your answer for you.
I don't see a problem with your arrangement with the groomer. The distinction between your fees and her fees is clear, as the checks are made payable to her directly and you don't comingle her cash with your own. I do not think it is unusual that she does not interact with the customers simply because the grooming is being done while the dogs are being boarded.
Is there a way to print this out for my records?
Once the live chat is over, our conversation will converted to text under the website address in your address bar. You could then print it out.
OK, I think we're probably done
