Please help. Does anyone have an idea if the principal owner of a C-Corporation can provide services to its own business as an Independent Contractor?

So it will be like.
X is the owner of the C-corporation
X provides services to the C-corporation as an Independent Contractor

Is that really allowed under the Corporate laws of United States?

The question of employee vs independent contractor turns on the unique facts and circumstances of each arrangement. However. the key determination is whether the person hiring the services has the type of control over the person providing the services that an employer generally has.

Where the company is owned by the same individual who is providing the services, it is nearly impossible to see how an argument can be made that the requisite control is lacking.

Its almost the same as the owner being paid as an employee. There is definitely no issue on this, it can be done. However, the employee should pay the govt the tax based on the money earned as a contractor and/or being employee.
