    What You Need To Know Before Hiring Subcontractors

    Posted by Sharie DeHart on Tue, May 28, 2019

    In Construction, hiring Independent Contractors can get very expensive, very fast!

    The Internal Revenue has a defined set of rules on what is the difference between an "Independent Contractor" and "Employee". With all the documentation in place, a person could still be classified in the eyes of the Internal Revenue Service as an "Employee."

    When you hire 1099 contractors

    You need to know that their state contractor's license, bond, and insurance are active. During audits, state agencies are now looking to check the bond and insurance. Anytime a contractor's license is suspended, the State may reclassify that person as an employee on your job.

    Because all fifty states are working with other agencies looking to be sure employee rights are covered, and the state, local and federal payroll taxes are paid. As an employer among your responsibilities are these:

    • Pay workers’ compensation

    • Meet wage and hour requirements

    • Pay unemployment tax

    • Maintain a safe workplace

    Annual Taxes And Job Costing From The View Of The Contractor

    Posted by Sharie DeHart on Fri, Sep 09, 2016


    The First Question You May Ask Yourself Is

    Why Doesn’t My Tax Accountant Help Me With Job Costing?

    They are Tax Accountants, not Construction Accountants and may not know the answers. You may think they are just keeping it a secret. Sometimes you may think they don’t know what they are doing, and maybe I need to get a new tax accountant.  

    My Advice is Stop, take a deep breath. Is your tax accountant doing a good job with your annual taxes? If the answer is YES. Please keep them, they are doing what they are supposed to do.

    Contractors Who Cheat On Taxes Lose Money

    Posted by Randal DeHart on Fri, Feb 13, 2015
