W-2 and Other Tax Forms – I am an independent contractor. Can you issue my wages on a 1099 instead of a W-2?

No. The federal government considers any person under an employer’s direction or control (i.e., the employer dictates hours and/or conditions) an employee. As such, withholding and employer taxes (e.g., FICA, SUI, and FUI) are due on wages and taxable allowances.

If the employer fails to comply, potential liabilities exist for all unpaid federal, state, and municipal taxes. In addition, penalties and interest may be levied. Even if the income is reported on a 1099 form, there would be no relief from these obligations if the individual is deemed an employee. Therefore, EP does not pay independent contractors.

If you have any questions, please contact EP’s Payment Support at 800.417.0037.

W-2 and Other Tax Forms – I received payments for my kit rental/box rental and no taxes were withheld, why I’m receiving a 1099?

EP requires a box rental form to be completed to support the Internal Revenue Service’s requirement for regular accountings under their tax regulations. Even though the payment is non-taxable at the time is cut, the payment is reportable to the IRS on a 1099M form under Rents. Employees must keep all necessary receipts when filing their federal tax return to substantiate the payments.
