Suggest it would be extremely interesting to get an opinion regarding Lender directed Scope of Work mandatory requirements including "exactly how to do an appraisal" and AMC control over "independent contractors" from a National or Regional IRS official

see this thread.........AND the IRS regulations per their Website. Comments welcome. thanks.

If you are in one of the 23 states employing the ABC Test, the rules are tougher than the IRS rules. Washington State is getting real tough.

Independent Contractor

The general rule is that an individual is an independent contractor if (the person for whom the services are performed)

has the right to control or direct

only the result of the work, and not what will be done and how it will be done or method of accomplishing the result.
____________________________________________________________________________________________________

People such as lawyers, contractors, subcontractors, public stenographers, and auctioneers who follow an independent trade, business, or profession in which they offer their services to the public, are generally not employees. However, whether such people are employees or independent contractors depends on the facts in each case.
