Need some help! Currently live in TX but work as an independent contractor (remote) for a NYC based company - do I still need to pay NY state convenience tax on income or would this only apply as a full-time employee?

If you are an employee of a NY company and an exception doesn't apply, the convenience of the employer rule would force you to pay NY taxes. However, since you're an independent contractor, the rule doesn't apply. However, depending on your duties/responsibilities, NY could assert employee misclassification and apply the convenience of the employer rule.

Weird question- or confessional (unsure tbh)- do any of you ever play hooky? I billed all weekend (7 year atty in ID) and today is wicked weather in the south so I’m “wfh” but not really. I didn’t have time for Sunday scaries but now I’m having Monday guilts, as I cope by watching my dogs sleep and watch the GOT prequel out of the corner of my eye while going through emails. It’s not a monthly thing but I’m just tired. Thinking it speaks to my immaturity and hopefully not my job trajectory?

Does SAP India provide WFH initial set-up allowance !?


Folks who’ve left ClearView, how is life on the other side, and how long did you stay before you jumped ship? It’s a week where I’m burning, and the fact that I feel so isolated during it makes me want to quit consulting altogether. Would also like to talk to some of you if possible. Never thought I’d say this but I honestly feel unhappy in my job, and I wonder if it is just WFH related - and whether it might get better once the office opens up.


How did people job hunt before WFH? I’m searching around for opportunities now since I feel like I’m not growing at my current job. I had a couple interviews on phone / video (during work hours) but it got me thinking - how did people interview when they were in the office 5 days a week? Did they just bring a tie in their bag and dip out the office before the interview? Or took a personal day every interview?
