Do you think you have independent contractors instead of employees? As a business owner, if you have independent contractors, you do not have to withhold taxes, provide benefits, or even pay minimum wage. Unfortunately, Nevada law and federal law have recently made sweeping changes in how they define an "independent contractor." If you improperly categorize the worker as an independent contractor, you may subject yourself to fines from both the State of Nevada and the Internal Revenue Service.
There are a series of factors to look at in determining whether your worker is an
independent contractor or an employee. You should look to, among other things: (1) whether the worker has control and discretion over when and how they work; (2) the worker performs services for other businesses; (3) the worker provides his/her own equipment or tools; and (4) whether the worker incurs his/her own costs in performing services such as insurance and other overhead.
