As a way for organizations like yours to limit salary costs and respond to ebbs and flows of business, the use of independent contractors is on the rise.
As you’re undoubtedly aware, Form 1099 helps the IRS track payments made by businesses to other taxpayers (these same independent contractors). But who can be classified as an independent contractor can be confusing. To further complicate, there’s more than one type of 1099 form. And there’s the W-9 and the W-8 to sort out. Not knowing the differences can lead to costly penalties.
