- Is your homeschool teacher an employee or independent contractor?
- Should your homeschool co-op director be paid as an employee?
- How hard is it to set up a payroll system?
- What happens if my homeschool group misclassifies a worker? Are their penalties?
Worker classification can be a confusing topic.
My book Paying Workers in a Homeschool Organization can help clear a lot of confusion, but perhaps you want to discuss your particular situation in a private, individual phone consultation.
I offer phone consultations to help you determine if your homeschool organization’s workers are employee or independent contractors. The phone call will be followed up with an email containing a fact-based determination and information to help you take the next steps.
As a CPA licensed to practice before the IRS, my determination will form a “reasonable basis” for your worker classification in the eyes of the IRS (IRM 126.96.36.199.2.7, Other Reasonable Basis). That means you may avoid monetary penalties due to worker misclassification under the IRS’s Section 530 Safe Harbor.
My fee for this consultation is $150 per worker type.
To request a consultation, please contact me. I’m happy to help and relieve any anxiety you have about this confusing topic.
