About the Webinar

IRS audits on the subject of whether a worker is a contractor or an employee are on the rise. States are also increasing enforcement in this area. This webinar will help you tell the difference between a contractor and an employee and what to do if the IRS audits your business.

 

Session Highlights:

  • Why it’s important to know the difference between contractors and employees
  • All the different ways you can get audited: IRS, DOL, and states (we focus on the IRS mostly in this webinar)
  • The IRS’s current 3-factor test
  • The older — but still referenced — 20-factor test
  • Dealing with borderline situations — are they a contractor or are they an employee?
  • Form SS-8 — what to do if an employee files one
  • IRS relief programs: Section 530; Section 3509; the voluntary compliance program

 

Why You Should Attend:

This webinar will cover what the IRS looks at when auditing whether a worker is an employee or a contractor. We will cover the current “3-factor” standard the IRS uses, as well as the older “20-factor” standards. We will also discuss the relief options available if you get audited and the IRS reclassifies contractors as employees.

NOTE: this webinar specifically focuses mostly on the IRS but we also talk briefly about other agencies that could audit this issue, such as the DOL or state agencies.
