Remove 1099 Remove Contractor Remove Quitting Remove W-2

Share Your Passion – Be an About.com Guide

Telecommuting Journal

It’s been around for quite a long time. About.com hires independent contractors to contribute content to the About.com website as either a Guide, a Topic Guide, or a Video Producer. An independent contractor, or freelancer, isn’t employed by the company directly so for tax purposes you’ll be getting a 1099, not a W-2.

my boss makes me wear her clothes, eat her food, and say I’m grateful for my job

Ask a Manager

Sometimes she’s a lovely person, other times she’s quite difficult to handle. When I received my tax documents, I got a 1099 instead of a W-2. As for her treating you as a 1099 contractor rather than an employee (and thus not paying your payroll taxes ), that’s illegal. If she’s been paying you as a contractor this whole time, you should have seen it on your pay stubs when no taxes were coming out.).
