Tax Tip When Hiring Independent Contractors

Keep the work offsite - The IRS is on the hunt for business owners just like you who want to hire independent contractors to reduce payroll tax and benefit obligations. This is legal, provided that the IRS can’t establish that your working relationship with the contractor really is a cover-up for a traditional employer-employee relationship.

One important test to demonstrate contractor independence is the location where the contractor’s work is created or performed. It’s ok for independent contractors to attend meetings at your offices, but not ok to perform the work on your premises and use your equipment.
