Tax Compliance Issues: Independent Contractor or Employee?

Tax Compliance Issues: Independent Contractor or Employee?

November 1, 2017

1:00 PM - 2:30 PM

Independent Contractor/Consultant and part-time employee can sound like they refer to the same thing: getting the job done - but in fact they both have a distinct difference that can't be interchanged. Knowing the difference between the two and when an independent contractor/consultant should be an employee, is the key to protecting your tribe from IRS tax penalties.

 

This webinar will help your tribe successfully prepare for the year-end:

  • Review of new Department of Labor guidelines on independent contractor agreements
  • Discussion on factors used to evaluate "right to control" and applying the "economic realities" test
  • Examination of lease agreements
  • Identifying other types of payments requiring a Form 1099
  • Guidance on maintaining records to prove due diligence was exercised
  • Advice on adjusting the tribe’s relationship with independent contractors who cannot be converted to full employees
  • Differences in social security and withholding rules for tribal council members, board members, and election committees
