Fiscal/Employer Agent (F/EA)
The participant is the employer and purchases payroll services from Morning Sun. As the Payroll Agent, Morning Sun handles all payroll responsibilities including employee paychecks, tax withholding and employment taxes. Morning Sun facilitates coverage of Worker’s Compensation insurance for all employees. Morning Sun will guide the participant or their representative through the process of establishing themselves as the Employer.
*There are substantial tax savings for participants or representatives hiring family members under the fiscal/employer agent model of services. (See “Family Employees Sheet” for more details)

Headwaters Relief Organization in Colorado
In 2013 Headwaters Relief Organization traveled to Boulder, Colorado to help the community clean up after heavy rains caused large-scale flood damage.
“I joined the team from Headwaters which came to Colorado last October to help people whose houses had been damaged by the floods. It was an impressive group. Many were trained in construction, some, like me, could only shovel mud. They did a lot of good in two days, and then flew back to Minnesota to their regular jobs.”
