Are you mishandling your independent contractors? The IRS is watching more closely than ever
Abstract: For many years now, the IRS has been monitoring, in some cases challenging, employers’ handling of independent contractors. At issue: the agency’s contention that some companies are misclassifying employees as independent contractors. And construction companies are particularly in danger of running into classification troubles. This article explains how to distinguish between the two categories, and what to do if cases of misclassification are found.
