The IRS is really cracking down on finding and penalizing employers who improperly classify a worker as an independent contractor when he’s really an employee. Don’t let your business clients get caught in the crossfire. Did you know that even if the worker agrees to be classified as an independent contractor, the IRS will not honor that agreement? View this on-demand webinar and get educated on how to classify workers and the proper procedure to follow when a determination cannot be made. Also learn about the various tactics employers are using to skirt around the issue and if these tactics are working based on case law. We will also cover how to obtain relief for employers who’ve been penalized by the IRS for worker misclassification. If you have business clients, you really need this on-demand webinar.
Upon completion of this on-demand webinar, you will be able to:
  • Identify factors used to determine if a worker is an employee or independent contractor
  • Complete Form SS-8, Determination of Worker Status for Purposes of Federal Employment Taxes and Income Tax Withholding
  • Obtain penalty relief for employers who’ve misclassified workers
