Can I put myself on payroll as an employee?

Answer entirely depends on on the legal entity type for your business. If you are filing tax return as a sole proprietor, the answer is definitely no since you are not as employee. If the business is a corporation type, then you are an employee and you must be paid reasonable compensation and can be on payroll. Best advice is to consult with your accountant or tax professional based on your specific business situation.
