    As a person who ended up tearing my hair out over the complications caused by just filing for a sales tax number, I am going to say DON'T DO IT. It is worth your while to keep looking for a job where they pay you, and all the other people who get to tap into your paycheck. Trust me, unless you want to be knee deep in piddly....forget them.
    If laughter is the best medicine, I prescribe a Dachshund or four.

    My daughter worked at a Kiosk and the same thing took place. She made next to no money after everything was paid for. Unbelievable. Slave labor for the company.

    I am a CPA and work with taxes a bit. One thing to remember is if they set your hours, you are an employee, not a self employed contractor. A decade ago, I was laid off at Christmas and applied at Jackson Hewitt to do tax work. They wanted to pay $6 an hour and if I stayed until April 15th, I would get a percentage of all the returns I had completed. I was in desperate need of a job, but it seemed like such a poor way to treat the employees, I did not take the job. I ended up at Accountemps and was very happy there until I got a real job. Good luck to you!
