Effects of new requirements for the classification of workers according to G.L.c 149, §148B, on withholding tax on wages, in accordance with L.c 62B, TIR 05-11, mass. Dept. Of Revenue “This TIR summarizes the differences in the general rules for determining the status of employee/self-employed person, in accordance with Chapters 149 and 62B. Secondly, this TIR announces that the Commissioner will accept the determination of the status of employed person or self-employed contractor, as described in this TIR, by the Internal Revenue Service for the purpose of determining the income tax withholding obligations referred to in Chapter 62B.” This shows that even if another enterprise or person takes over the contractor or rental enterprise, the agreement remains in force. The above elements are the basic elements of an independent business subcontract. A company can also pay unemployment benefit contributions and workers` compensation premiums on behalf of its independent contractors, thereby limiting legal exposure in these areas. (Of course, paying these costs can nege one of the main reasons for using independent contractors.) The quintessence is that a company`s response to MIFL must be carefully weighed, while reflecting and displaying itself to all risks and effects. An agreement on independent contractors allows the recruitment company and the contractor to describe in detail what is expected and why, for legal and tax reasons, the contractor is not an employee. As a general rule, the IRS treats independent contractors as self-employed and their income is subject to self-government tax. On the other hand, when there is an employer-employee relationship, the hiring company is responsible for Medicare and Social Security taxes.
This means that the contractor of the company giving birth must do so in writing to release a right or right. The Attorney General of Massachusetts enforces the Massachusetts Independent Contractor Law. . . .
