Am I an employee or independent contractor?
This is a question I have for a college class, and cannot find the answer.Can someone help me please?
Working for a company for 6 years that pays commission on deliveries and pickups, lease a truck from them, choose my own 10 hour shift with no control on how these services are carried out.
Company can terminate the arrangement after 30 days notice, but allows its truckers to quite immediately without giving advance notice.
Reports our income by issuing form 1099-MISC. We must maintain a commercial driver's license. IRS says I am an independent contractor and subject to self-employment tax.
I disagree and say I am an employee. Who is right and why?
