so aside from calling the authorities, it sounds like my option is to suck it up and pay the tax, huh?IMO, that's pretty much the bottom line. The quick and dirty solution that won't raise any red flags for either you or her is to file a schedule C and pay the social security taxes yourself.If you really wanted to push the issue, you could report the income on line 7 (wages, tips and other compensation) and not file schedule SE for the social security taxes. Your argument would be that your employer was responsible for withholding any paying over those taxes. I don't know how well this would fly, however.I don't see anything in your description of your duties that even remotly sounds like a contractor - you were an employee. The business being organized as an S Corp is immaterial for this purpose.--Peter
