independent contractor or employee??? NEW
by: Anonymous

My employer also tells me what time I need to be at the job or plant. I drive his truck and also I help work on them. He supplies everything like cellphones, pens, stapler,staples,fuel,drinks,time sheet,etc... I also get payed hourly and get a check on Fridays. We have mandatory meetings and they expect me to be on call all the time. If I have to be on the job at 6:00pm and something broke at the plant and we are on hold we can not leave. so I do think i am a employee And they do not give 1099's and they also don't show the irs that they even have employee(there's 5) so what is going on

Go to www.irs.gov and search for "independent contractor". There are criteria that must be strictly adhered to in order for you to be a "1099" employee. Otherwise, your employer must count you as an employee and contribute to your Social Security and Medicare accounts, as well as withhold taxes on your behalf.
