1099 post #1  quote:



For the last 3 years ive been getting a 1099, Well im not a subcontractor. I work by the hour, I ride in company vehichle, and wear company t-shirts. The company doesnt take taxes out on the hourly workers. I never really thought about it until i filed my 2002 1099 and i filed head of household with 1 dependant, i made like $11,000 that year and still had to pay $1670 to IRS and $43.00 to state. I dont think that is right, i know it been a year but im just realizing the mistake. I shouldnt have to pay the price of a subcontractor when im an hourly worker. What can i do? Is their anything i can do? Thank You White_Kelso

You have options, but not sure you will like them. You are empowered to say no to that working arrangement with your boss. You risk losing your job. Or you can negotiate a higher contract price to cover your overhead and taxes. Incidently, do you need to get insurance for your work that you do? What if something drastic happens and a lawsuit goes after your work for defect or whatever tort liability for which you may be held partially or fully responsible?

Can you also provide your services to a competitor? That is a finer distinction whether you are truely independent or not, unless you signed a non-compete agreement or sole contracting.

If all things fail, your next and final option would be to see a mad-dog lawyer to fix his wagon.

But isnt it against the law to pay someone by the hour and not take taxes out? My paycheck is 5 different numbers everyweek, say one day i make 72-144-216-288- and $360 a week. Its weird that a subcontractor can do the same amount footage of work everyweek. I just dont know but what i do know is am getting ripped off! Im layed-off by this company right now so i dont care about losing my job. Oh yeah one more question if i may, This company recently became Imcorporated, being incorporated means hourly workers have taxes taken out and you have benefits. lol we dont even get time and a half for over 40 hours.
I dont know, Thanks For The Help. White_Kelso

In Writing Or Verbal Agreement? post #4  quote:

I don't think I'm making my point clearly, and apologize.

The facts you presented tell me you owned your own company when you agreed to accept contracting work for that company (your former boss.) Perhaps, you didn't KNOW what you were getting into and were deceived. But it looks like you were given an incentive to accept that "company to company" working arrangement. They gave you a proposal and you agreed that you're a contractor (no longer an employee for the company) and you took your contracting terms and payments as acceptable. Did you say "Stop" put me back on the payroll instead, before they fired you?

Your work performance per week is governed by the terms of your written contract. If you can't understand all the legalise, go get some help to see if you have any right of action. Maybe they can tell and agree if you were "ripped off."

Instead of presenting your NET figures by the day totalling for the week, you might want to look at the gross by the unit measurement (by the job, footages, hours, day, tasks etc.) and compare whether you were offered more as a contract owner than as an employee for doing what you apparently say is the same work before and after the new working arrangement.

Taking taxes becomes your responsibility since you are your own boss. Your own company pays your benefits, but I sensed your company is eating from the hands of the former that feeds you as the sole employee and sole owner. This means that you have to sue yourself, unless you can find some good lawyer to say you never did leave as an employee (and say you didn't know what they did to you.) Hope that helps.

I think i know what you mean. I never signed anything saying i was a subcontractor or agreeing to be one. When i started this company taxes were never discussed, I was hired as an hourly worker. What you are saying is i would have had to sign something to be a subcontractor right? I have never signed anything but a check lol. Thank You white_kelso
