I have worked for a house cleaning company for the past 3 years. I never filled out anything to get paid. i was getting cash at first. Then employer started hiring more employees. I started to get paid in a check with out taxes taken out. she gave me a 1099 at end of year. told me I was a sub contractor to her.
I was a full time employee.I was told when to meet, where to go, used her vehicle and supplies.She had so many girls work for her. some quit, some get fired. Usually its 4 full time employees at most times. She pays them cash up til this year. she never gave them a 1099. She said I was the only employee that she subs out to. Since she has fired me, now she wants the W9 form filled out.=== There is no such thing as a ?1099 employee.You are not a regular W2 employee as you received a 1099 and she wants you to submit W9.you are an independent contractor; that is why she did not withhold social security taxes from your paycheck and you did not even receive a W2;possibly as in many cases, your boss didnt want to have to pay taxes to the IRS/state on your behalf so she pays you as a contractor . the best way is; here is a link to IRS Form SS-8. You will need to fill out this form to notify the IRS of your situation. The IRS will determine if you should have been treated as an employee. If so, they will collect the Social Security and Medicare that your employer should have paid. Employers are supposed to withhold Social Security and Medicare and match those amounts. If you are self-employed (independent contractor), you must pay both parts. So, by doing this your employer has doubled the Social Security and Medicare taxes for you. Also, you may contact your state's Department of Labor to notify them about the situation.
with a copy of my license. It's nothing on my license that she don't already have known from the copies of 1099's in past years. Doesn't the employer should have gave me a form to fill out to withhold taxes? Does house cleaning companies have exceptions? Does the employer get in trouble for having all those full time workers and she don't pay taxes on them? Or is the 1099 that is giving to employee makes them responsible for the taxes in all?====>As mentioned above.
