Nope. Sorry. This may take months before it comes out.

SF, I really appreciate your post. As I am a home baker and constantly have people wanting to pay me - it helps me stick to my guns until I am. I have had people shove checks in my face which I have given back. Maybe it's just me, but as much as Food cottage Laws will most likely be my best start, I also think they have the potential of complicating so much because the rules vary. Still researching.... I am currently reading the PA codes.

Correction: only an idiot or insane person would evade taxes. Many very smart people legally avoid taxes on a regular basis.

Yes, which is why I corrected your statement.

Nope, sorry.  as it turns out lawyers have talent and the person got into a very large commercial kitchen.  the website still says their product is located in stores but I know it's not.  Anyway, I will not be adding the name of the person or the business to this thread.  Sorry!

wow scary

 

but i sure as shooting would have asked for all the financials involved for any amount of investment

 

that is exactly one of the best reasons to me to not piggy back or rent someone else's kitchen/business

 

if i am renting how can i be sure they are solvent, legal or tax abiding

 

well i'd find out if they are legal because i would be inspected before launching and i know the different fire & health inspectors ask for licensing

 

but i still would not know if they are above board

 

sure though i've imagined 'renting' a kitchen and showing up to work and having my stuff padlocked in because they din do their taxes

Thank you OP for posting that excellent cautionary example. Most posters may have less to lose, but any legal actions could be ruinous or at the least a major headache.   As rare and unlikely as the mot serious consequences may be for smaller scale bakers, it is still appropriate to be educated.   Each person must then decide for themselves if and how to use the information. Thanks!
