Business taxpayers operate in an enhanced employment tax enforcement climate — both civil and criminal — and in certain situations face potentially devastating liability from worker misclassification. The need for analysis and strategizing by business taxpayers for proactively managing the worker-misclassification risk issue (rather than it being managed by the tax authorities) has never been greater.
