I have a Massage Therapy Practice with 2 subcontractors, can I run a clients credit card in my cc mackine and then pay it to th contractor? if so, do I pay taxex on all of it? if not can the contractor help pay for the cc service and then I can run the cc or is there any way around it? Thanks

Good evening. Yes, you can run the cc on your machine and pay all or any portion of it to the contractors. I presume you report your business on Schedule that case, you would report the gross proceeds and subtract out the payments to your subs. Then you need to issue a 1099 to your subs at the end of the year if you pay them more than $600.



I hope this has given you the guidance you were seeking. I wish you the best of luck!
