Employee Classification Disputes
For federal and state tax purposes, there are two classifications of workers. A worker is either an employee or an independent contractor. The distinction between independent contractor and employee is an important one because it impacts the tax responsibilities of both the business and the workers.
Recently, the government announced it plans to increase enforcement efforts in the area of worker misclassification by businesses. The Internal Revenue Service announced it will be paying more attention to worker classification issues as the number of workers being classified as independent contractors is steadily increasing.
Businesses that have misclassified workers as independent contractors rather than employees may be subject to significant back taxes and penalties and even criminal prosecution. Attorney Otto S Shill, III is experience in the process the IRS and the courts use to determine whether a worker is appropriately classified as an employee or independent contractor for tax purposes.
