1040ez Book

1040ez book It is critical that business owners correctly determine whether the individuals providing services are employees or independent contractors. 1040ez book Generally, you must withhold income taxes, withhold and pay Social Security and Medicare taxes, and pay unemployment tax on wages paid to an employee. You do not generally have to withhold or pay any taxes on payments to independent contractors. 1040ez book Select the Scenario that Applies to You: 1040ez book I am an independent contractor or in business for myself 1040ez book If you are a business owner or contractor who provides services to other businesses, then you are generally considered self-employed. For more information on your tax obligations if you are self-employed (an independent contractor), see our Self-Employed Tax Center. 1040ez book I hire or contract with individuals to provide services to my business 1040ez book If you are a business owner hiring or contracting with other individuals to provide services, you must determine whether the individuals providing services are employees or independent contractors. Follow the rest of this page to find out more about this topic and what your responsibilities are. 1040ez book Determining Whether the Individuals Providing Services are Employees or Independent Contractors 1040ez book Before you can determine how to treat payments you make for services, you must first know the business relationship that exists between you and the person performing the services. The person performing the services may be - 1040ez book An independent contractor 1040ez book An employee (common-law employee) 1040ez book A statutory employee 1040ez book A statutory nonemployee 1040ez book In determining whether the person providing service is an employee or an independent contractor, all information that provides evidence of the degree of control and independence must be considered. 1040ez book Common Law Rules 1040ez book Facts that provide evidence of the degree of control and independence fall into three categories: 1040ez book Behavioral: Does the company control or have the right to control what the worker does and how the worker does his or her job? 1040ez book Financial: Are the business aspects of the worker’s job controlled by the payer? (these include things like how worker is paid, whether expenses are reimbursed, who provides tools/supplies, etc.) 1040ez book Type of Relationship: Are there written contracts or employee type benefits (i.e. pension plan, insurance, vacation pay, etc.)? Will the relationship continue and is the work performed a key aspect of the business? 1040ez book Businesses must weigh all these factors when determining whether a worker is an employee or independent contractor. Some factors may indicate that the worker is an employee, while other factors indicate that the worker is an independent contractor. There is no “magic” or set number of factors that “makes” the worker an employee or an independent contractor, and no one factor stands alone in making this determination. Also, factors which are relevant in one situation may not be relevant in another. 1040ez book The keys are to look at the entire relationship, consider the degree or extent of the right to direct and control, and finally, to document each of the factors used in coming up with the determination. 1040ez book Form SS-8 1040ez book If, after reviewing the three categories of evidence, it is still unclear whether a worker is an employee or an independent contractor, Form SS-8, Determination of Worker Status for Purposes of Federal Employment Taxes and Income Tax Withholding (PDF) can be filed with the IRS. The form may be filed by either the business or the worker. The IRS will review the facts and circumstances and officially determine the worker’s status. 1040ez book Be aware that it can take at least six months to get a determination, but a business that continually hires the same types of workers to perform particular services may want to consider filing the Form SS-8 (PDF).

Answers to Common Questions

Which organizations are eligible to file Form 990-N?
Small tax-exempt organizations whose annual gross receipts are $50,000 or less for 2010 ($25,000 or less for 2009) are eligible to electronically submit Form 990-N, also known as the e-Postcard. The organization may choose to file a complete Form 990 or Form 990-EZ instead.

When is Form 990-N due?
Form 990-N is due by the 15th day of the 5th month following the close of the organization's accounting period. Thus, for a calendar year taxpayer, Form 990-N is due on May 15 of the following year. If any due date falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday, the organization can file the return on the next business day.

  • Organizations described in section 501 (c)(3) (other than private foundations), and
  • Organizations described in other 501 (c) subsections (other than black lung benefit trusts).

Other exempt organizations can file Form 990-EZ instead. If gross receipts are $50,000 or lower in 2010 ($25,000 for 2009), organizations are eligible to file Form 990-N.

When is Form 990 or 990-EZ due?
Form 990 or 990-EZ is due by the 15th day of the 5th month after the end of the tax year. Thus, for a calendar year taxpayer, Form 990 or Form 990-EZ is due on May 15 of the following year.
