Thanks for your input, keep it coming guys. This is good stuff.
Other than the workers comp, it is only their salary and my 7.5% portion of the taxes that I need to pay.

I talked to paychex today I will post more info when I get it.
I spoke with someone else who said you can be exempt from workman's comp if you have fewer than 4 employees. paychex does the w comp for $75+pay as you go based on the wage ($20k per year for one employee would be around $1000 total)

Paychex was the only company to respond to my RFI. I have a meeting with them 3-2-10

I met with my CPA today he verified that in FL you can get exempt from workers comp for up to 4 employees after that you need it for sure.

Next I need to incorporate, everyone I talk to so far has said s-corp is the way to go. Anyone got any insight on this?

I'd still like to see a copy of the disclaimer you were saying your dad made his employees sign.
