Worker Misclassification

The Worker Misclassification area is a prime example of the enhanced tax enforcement climate we practice in. Major audit resources are being devoted by the IRS and State tax authorities, as well as the U.S. and State Departments of Labor, in reclassifying independent contractors as employees and these agencies are exchanging more and more audit information and the stakes on worker misclassifications are getting higher under the Affordable Care Act's 50 full time employee trigger for the employer insurance mandate.
