Yes, before you can be classified as a statutory employee, the IRS requires that your job falls into one of the following four categories:
Driver who distributes beverages (other than milk) or meat, vegetable, fruit, or bakery products; or who picks up and delivers laundry or dry cleaning, if the driver is your agent or is paid on commission.
A full-time life insurance sales agent whose principal business activity is selling life insurance or annuity contracts, or both, primarily for one life insurance company.
An individual who works at home on materials or goods that you supply and that must be returned to you or to a person you name, if you also furnish specifications for the work to be done.
A full-time traveling or city salesperson who works on your behalf and turns in orders to you from wholesalers, retailers, contractors, or operators of hotels, restaurants, or other similar establishments. The goods sold must be merchandise for resale or supplies for use in the buyer's business operation. The work performed for you must be the salesperson's principal business activity.
It sounds like what you have described your job to be that the only classification that might apply to you is if you do your work from an office in your home.
I am not quite certain why you are being required to be paid via a W-2 form in the state of Virginia, when your other locations paid you on a 1099 form. If you were treated before as an independent contractor in the states of Colorado and Washington, then why would they now be changing your classification based on the fact that you are now in Virginia? Did they explain why this was necessary?
