1.Can we own our business? 2. Do we have to run own payroll?
See clip from Attorney Rajiv S. Khanna's conference call video that addresses this question.
1. Yes you can.
2. You do not.
A business owner often does not get paid. Make sure you got a back up plan. If your EAD runs out for some reason and it is not renewed you should have someone run the business while you do not have an EAD.
