Would it be fraud to have another "earn" your income that you may avoid some sort of fee?

    So I couldn't find a real answer on this anywhere on the net, and I am thinking it would be something that would be far more "questionable" than definite.

    Here is a few of scenarios: You are an internet Marketer who only needs a computer to make the BIG bucks (and you run a 100% legit biz) Say, you want to live in another country for a prolonged time, or just travel so much that you are never ever in the USA, but you want to keep your USA "job". Maybe Google pays you, maybe CJ, whatever, they are an American company essentially, they are paying you, an American citizen.

    Or maybe you have some sort of wage garnishment, such as child-alimony or something and like Slim Shady says (that money is not for your Escalade, bitch)

    Or maybe you want to make money in another country from something legal there (like gambling) but not here.

    So would it be illegal to have another party "earn" your money? Like say you have your brother sign up for Google, Cj or whatever, and you say, you "earn" all of this cash, just make sure you pay the right taxes, do everything by the book and give me 95% of your income, keep the rest for being such a good guy...

    Yeah, I think that sums it up. Anyone know as to the legalities or illegalities of something of this nature?

    not only is this illegal, but happens to your brother when its tax time? you have all the money, and he is stuck with the tax bill. 5% in the US doesn't even cover half of self employment earnings.
