Tax Status of an Employee vs. Independent Contractor
For IRS purposes, there are definite differences between an employee and an independent contractor; you should understand how they are classified.
Public sector authorities in New York must balance the needs of constituents and manage complex, shrinking budgets to meet government-wide challenges. There is a need to execute all activities in a fully transparent manner and in full compliance with mounting regulations. You need to work with financial professionals who have the experience to provide strategic, innovative solutions.
