I have known tax preparers who tell their self-employed clients to file a claim against the 1099 issuer. They attempt to have the issuer pay their income tax, saying they really were employees.
I have had excellent experience mounting a strong defense for an employer, as well as an offense for an employee who was innocent in the matter.
This is not an easy battle for the employer. What may seem obvious to you may cause you to lose because you didn’t understand the the issues of contract vs. employee ahead of the time. We really can help you win.
Were you treated as an independent contractor and now owe taxes on your personal return? Would you like your employer to pay? You can contact the IRS and explain why you should have been treated as an employee. If you win you will not have to pay. Free Evaluation
