This week we are going to bring you up to date on the risks of using Owner Operators and misclassifying workers.

We know there have been many articles on this subject but this is the first article that actually has detailed percentages in case you lose an IRS audit or an EDD audit.

In addition, we will cover the fines for failure to file W-2 or 1099, failure to file quarterly returns, failure to pay taxes and failure to request social security numbers.

For those of who have been hiding under a rock these past several years, we want to reiterate the fact that the Independent Contractor Model is still under attack especially since the NLRB's intervention in October 2014.  

You may want to think about changing your business model. Join NTA and get a risk assessment of your company.

Remember, you may not be able to succeed on your own without help. If you are thinking about joining an association for help, you need the best.  NTA has several experienced law firms throughout the US that may be able to help you.

NT-Association.com will help your independent contractors maintain their status as an IC.

When it comes to independent contractors,  NTA is the "Rolls Royce" of transportation associations.  

Join the NTA and don't wait until it's too late.
