I normally charge around $112/hr or $950/day as freelance. What would you all recommend for a W2 rate?

$950!! Otherwise you set a new normal for yourself, and you DON’T want that!.

Over 950. Since you lose all the deductions available as a contractor I’d say 1100.

$720 a day?

Why less? My CPA always says I should charge more for w2 work since I lose all my deductions and thus actually take a rate cut. 1099 work is more profitable for me. To clarify though, this is in reference to short term projects where they force me on w2, not full time where I would get benefits and paid time off.
