Never got my 1099 for a $10k project. I reached out to the company + their accountant. I think they completely forgot to file me into their database. What do I do?

Report it anyways.


Don’t chance it

Take the money and run playa

Same thing happened to me. You still report it. Your income should probably exceed your 1099 totals

Always report it

File it. You should be able to find their employer id and other details you'll need online.

Working with a large start up who acquired a more traditional IT company. They are doing a ton of cloud migration projects to support the integration and there is a huge debate between the two companies as whether to run this agile or waterfall.

They ultimately want consistency... Thoughts? Any tips of how to make this successful?

Imagine for a moment that all strategic consulting firms in the region would have consultants work no later than 9pm. Do you think the quality of the output would decrease?

(Personal experience: in London for my same firm I used to work much less and the output was great…)

I’m not convinced that contracting on 1099 is better than W2, since you pay 15% extra self employment tax.

If you have one 1099 gig you can claim all your expenses for the year against that and then go W2 for the rest. Am I missing something?
