1099 Tax Form Questions

What is 1099 tax form and what are the 1099 laws?

A 1099 tax form is used for reporting many different types of taxable income. From sale of stocks to cancelation of debt, all the way to reporting unemployment and state tax refunds. When it comes to tax forms there are many questions and issues that may arise. Many people are unaware of these tax form issues and dealing with the legal implications that involve the owner/employer and 1099 employee laws. Many times the employee is unaware of their 1099 contractual agreement and need 1099 help.

1099 tax form questions are some of the most frequently asked questions regarding employment law. Read below a few of the top 1099 tax for questions.

In the state of California does a person have to pay back commission for canceled contracts if they are a 1099 employee if they are no longer employed?

In most situations, in the state of California a person would be obligated to pay back commission if both parties signed an agreement holding the person responsible for repayment.

If a person terminates a 1099 contract because the company was closing and then didn’t and the contract had a one year no complete would the no complete be valid?

Most of the time, if a person believed the company was closing and that being the reason they ended the relationship then the non-complete clause could not be enforced if the person believed the company to be truthful. There are many 1099 tax form questions that come up daily, ask an Expert for answers to your specific questions.

In the state of Iowa can a person that is 1099 employee on contract file a wrongful termination suit if they feel they have been terminated as a example to other employees?

A person could not file a wrongful termination suit in Iowa, because Iowa is a employment at will state which means the employer is free to terminate a employee for any reason other than race, gender, age or other type of discrimination. As well as a 1099 employee is a contractual employee, not payroll, most of the time this means that there is no binding employment perks or laws to a 1099 employee.

Can an owner of a business dictate the hours of a person who is a 1099 employee and works for commission?

If an owner of a company or business begins telling someone what hours they have to work they run the risk of having the person classified as an employee based on IRS regulations. One of the employment 1099 laws is that anyone working under a 1099 employee, has the right to choose what hours, days and times that they perform their duties.

Can a employer demand a person to sit at a desk for forty hours a week and fill out a time card if the person is a commission employee and 1099 not W2?

The owner of the company can require someone to work the forty hours and fill out a time card but the person can file a claim that they are not an independent contractor and the company owner/employer is in violation of IRS laws.

1099 tax forms are used for reporting different types of income. There are many different types of 1099 tax forms that are used for a variety of different incomes. When faced with tax form complications many people are not sure who they can ask or where to turn to with their questions on 1099 laws and 1099 requirements. If you have any question on 1099 tax form or other aspects of tax form law you could ask an Experts.
