How to Document Classification?, Associated Forms – SS-8, 1099, 940, 941

Why Should You Attend:

Classifying workers as independent contractors simplifies your payroll process and can save business owners money. Workers that feel they have been misclassified can file a tax form to notify the IRS of the discrepancy and organizations can be held liable for the taxes and related penalties.
