Choose A Status:

You have to choose based on status of how you treat the individual/entity working with you.   It’s not enough to simply call them one status versus the other. You can get snagged by the government if you do this wrong!

How Do I Know?

“The general rule is that an individual is an independent contractor if the payer has the right to control or direct only the result of the work, not what will be done and how it will be done. Small businesses should consider all evidence of the degree of control and independence in the employer/worker relationship.

Whether a worker is an independent contractor or employee depends on the facts in each situation.” – IRS.gov
