b&b66 Should your boss be paying you as an employee or contractor? (with accountant Matt Close)
There’s been a new trend in the workforce and it’s been dubbed the “gig economy.” You’ve seen it everywhere – Uber, Lyft, Instacart, Fancy Hands, Task Rabbit, etc. But companies like Uber have been under fire for hiring their drivers as independent contractors when they should be considered employees.
We talk with Matt Close of Bethel Tax (betheltax.com), an accountant who specializes in working with independent contractors, freelancers, and small businesses, to find out what the real line in the sand is on employees vs. independent contractors and what you can do if you should be an employee but are being paid as a contractor.
