Contractor Vs Employee Issues and Settlements
Instructor: Greta P. Hicks
Product ID: 501371
Objectives of the Presentation
At the end of this webinar you will be able to:
  • Identify potential independent contractor and employee problem areas
  • Identify the paper work supporting the workers' independent contractor status
  • Taylor conversations to avoid the "control" issues that makes a worker an employee
  • Learn the purpose of the IRS Form SS-8 (Determination of Worker Status for Purposes of Federal Employment Taxes and Income Tax Withholding)
  • Be aware of Section 530, the Safe Harbor Rules, and Appeals Settlement Program
Why Should you Attend
Yes, employees versus contractor issues are back in our future. The IRS has plans to question classification of workers as independent contractors rather than as employees. Their computer is going to select "no" answers to the "Check the Box" Questions "Did you make any payments in 2015 that would require you to file Form(s) 1099?" and "If "Yes," did you or will you file required Forms 1099?" Other types of ways to find employee versus contractor issues is through "Compliance visits to your office to determine if Forms 1099 have been filed." The Social Security Fund needs money and finding misclassified workers and converting them to employees is a way to collect more Social Security and Medicare Taxes. This webinar will cover ways to prefect your worker's status and various settlements that can be reached with IRS Appeals on Employee vs Contractor issues.
