Letterman - Top Ten Ways to Annoy an IRS Agent
If you are a business owner and trying to figure out your way through how to handle payroll, the best recommendation is to invest in a good business accounting software program. There are several out there and they are very user friendly. Just read the manual(s) and get started. If you are a very small business owner and don't want to take the time from your business endeavors to handle payroll, you can check into hiring an accounting firm or bookkeeper. Someone who just deals with your books and someone that you don't have to provide office space or benefits for. What you shouldn't do is try to adlib on your payroll creations. The IRS will figure it out and then if you haven't done it correctly, you will have problems. You've seen the commercials on television about what to do when you owe, owe, owe to the IRS? Well, the reason many people get there is poor business practices.
If your problem is that you haven't kept any paycheck stubs, and now you are needing them for proof of income for some reason, the best thing to do is to contact your employer. Usually, they are more than happy to provide you with the information you need.
If you are looking to create fake paycheck stubs, you are in the wrong place. If you are thinking I need to make a paycheck stub so that you can get out of paying child support or prove to your probation officer that you are working when you aren't, then you should be ashamed of yourself. Creating fake paycheck stubs is illegal. Don't let anyone convince you otherwise.No doubt there are ways out there to forge these documents, but instead of investing so much energy on getting away with things, why don't you just do what's right!?
