    Hey All,

    I'm looking to hire local writers for my website and I'm not sure if I need to start a business. I live in Ohio. I'd like to just pay them by personal check. Would anyone advise against this? I heard that if the amount paid is under $600 taxes don't matter... you don't have to claim anything. Is that true? Thanks for the help!
