My boss owns his business and wants me to become his partner . I like the work I do and see an opportunity to make money from it , but its " financial advice " seems horrible. Does this make him a bad person to partner ? Your suggestions to save money : (1) leave my private health insurance , (2) reducing the auto insurance coverage to liability , and (3) cash in my IRA to pay off my debt - a shame tax of 43 % instead of the 5% tax deductible home loan participation took to consolidate. These seem , to me, to be one of the worst financial decisions you could make . To me, they are dangerous and represent a " live for today " . I think that doing these things would be financially irresponsible and play with my future . Failure to pay taxes ( business cash ) , do not use banks , checking customer receipts in a cash check not reported , recorded home and vehicles on behalf of his wife out of state , and pays me under the table . Am I crazy for even considering your offer?

This guy is living on the edge. One slip, and he will be IRS fodder.

They will be on him like a ton of bricks, and you may be held liable if you did not declare your income from him - I presume if he pays you "under the table", that there is no 1099, or W-2 form?

And, if you do report the income, you are letting the IRS know about this guy - so you're sort of in a no win situation.

I suggest you walk away from the deal; better yet quit the job, and cease all dealings with the guy.
