The company I work for (as a 1099 contractor) failed to have me complete a W-9. Therefore, they do not have my tax id number, but have already wire transferred me 10 months worth of pay (in exchange for 10 months worth of work).


Now, layoffs are happening. Just curious...what would happen if I never give them a W-9 or my tax ID number...

Tempting situation..... depending on your tolerance for risk taking. It could be a long term financial health to report it after deductions of expenses, even if they failed to handle this paperwork properly, Unless you feel fearless against the violent forces of uncle Sam's boots. Form your LLC and report your earnings, expenses andbany profits, doing it as an individual is a massive tax liability, not reporting it, you must be ready for a legal fight in the event your uncle comes for ya.

I agree. Iw ould definitley recommend following protocol and reporting it. You don't want to risk the consequences.

How do you all deal with the guilt of leaving a comany/ team? I have been working at Microsoft for 1 year now, and seriously considering moving. I find the code base to be very legacy and I mostly work on obscure bugs that I spend so much time on, mostly due to navigating this large code base and not having much docs to refer to. Hence I find the job slightly unsatisfying, and that I could learn more elsewhere. However, I love the wlb, the team and company culture. The guilt stops my applying.

I'm drowning in one-off business logic or planning requests ever since the last shuffle of devs. I'm the most senior, and def know the most, but on a team where our devs wear many hats, it means that I don't get to code nearly as much as I want to.

I also feel like these one-off requests do nothing for my career, as they're not seen as valuable to anyone other than the requesters.

Remote vs in person for software developers in their early career. I started my career in 2021 fully remote.

Lots of my colleagues still work from home in 2022. I can’t see why they are making it harder for themselves on purpose. I’m fairly confident they can afford to get to the office because they have teslas and shit.
