Independent Contractor Notice

How To Use

This review list is provided to inform you about this document in question and assist you in its preparation.  This document protects the employer, in part, from IRS, State, and local assessments if the Contractor is found to not meet the then IRS standards for Contractor status.  This puts the Contractor squarely on the hook for any assessments. Just as importantly, showing this document to an IRS, State, or local agent is apt to make them move on to another case or investigation since they are “after” companies not individuals. If they find that the “Contractor” must “pay up,” they are apt to move on to other corporations.

  1. Make multiple copies. Getting notarized copies is always a good idea since revenue agents tend to respect the legal niceties, and, remember, it is for them you are doing this.
