Our condo association wants to hire a local firm to clean our gutters. The contractor wants the check made payable to him personally, like "George Washington", instead of his firm "George's Gutter Cleaning Corp".
His certificate of insurance states "George's Gutter Cleaning Corp.", I wrote his firm name in the agreement, and his Angie's List entry shows his firm name.
I'm thinking he's trying to avoid paying taxes on the income.
Could the association get into trouble by the IRS if we make check payable to him personally?
