Depending on your relative incomes, you might get a little SS tax savings, but your spouse's business would still have to pay SS on your wages, even if you are over the SS limit.


Thanks. Even if he has to pay the business half of the FICA, that would still save us the other half that he'd be paying if he kept all the wages. Sounds like I should do some more digging.
