I have a friend who pays his minor children for work performed. A CPA recently told him that the kids would be exempt for FICA and MC withholding and employer match, as well as exempt from FUTA and California SUI(Unemployment). Can anybody confirm or deny. I can't get the SSA site to give me any help at all. Wouldn't it also make sense that they would be exempt from the California State Disability Fund, as I can't imagine, being minor family members, that they would be entitled to benefits.

Thanks in advance for any help.
