If an person filled out a application & W-4 can they still be an independent contractor?
The person's status changed to a independent contractor. There was never a schedule, if I needed assistance I would text her & she would inform me if she could help or not & choose when she could work or not. She also on many occasions brought her baby in if she couldn't find a babysitter. I did pull out some taxes,her initial paycheck, but never filed them as she has only helped me since sept when she choose to or was able to. Then I realized she was acting as a independant contrator by controlling her scheduling & doing her own thing. How or can I change her to a independent contractor & can i simple refund the amount I took out of her check & fill out a 1099 for her short time helping me, or do I have to submit a W2 for her? She doesn't help at all anymore after sending me a text to tell me do to her home situtations she isn't able to help anymore & said she was quiting? What do I need to do? Don't want to get into trouble.
