I have a S-Corporation registered in Washington state.
I will be working as a contractor for another company and the wages will be made payable to the S-Corporation using the S-Corporation's tax ID number. I would like my wife to receive the salary while I receive none. Is this possible without violating the reasonable salary rule? For example, if the contract work (which I will be performing) will gross $100,000 this year, the S-corporation will pay my wife $70,000 in salary with the remaining distributed to me in the form of dividends. The reason for this strategy is that I do not wish to report any wages on my Social Security number. I am not sure if the IRS has any way of knowing who is actually performing the work (since the wages are reported in the company's name and TIN).
