Do you get a W-2? This question has deep ramifications or implications as to who posts on this forum.

I'll keep it simple for now. Like how you are paid. But your question is a good one and as deep as the ocean.

Since we all report to Eli, you know under the FTC regulations and all, why don't you tell us what our status is?

:rof:That's pretty good. I didn't know you had that side to you. We should hang out,

A Form W-2 is issued by an employer to an employee for wages paid during the year. This requires an employer/employee relationship.

A Form 1099 (actually a Form 1099-MISC) is issued by a business for whom another business or individual has performed services in excess of $600. This requires that the parties not be in an employer/employee relationship.

Whether a relationship is an employer/employee relationship is a complex area of tax law. Here is an IRS article that discusses this: https://www.irs.gov/Businesses/Small-Businesses-&-Self-Employed/Independent-Contractor-Self-Employed...
