I have a client who wants to pay his minor children(10,13) a paycheck for actual work performed in his retail store rather than pay them out of his pocket at his tax rate. Is this generally ok? It is a proprietorship by the way. Also, if the children then have earned income, could they contribute to a Roth IRA?

Thanks in advance,

Chris
