Default partners?

If anyone has any experience or knowledge regarding this matter, it would be greatly appreciated.
This is very tricky and would advise talking with a tax professional and a lawyer before moving forward. You either have to establish a formal partnership and file it with the state, or have the owner of the house hire the other person or set up a corporation. In the end, I believe the best option is to have the owner of the house hire the other person. Call me at 651-280-5991 for more feedback. I don't charge anything for answering questions.
