I have a DBA sole owner and sole employee working small

Customer Question

I have a DBA sole owner and sole employee working for a small HOA as an
Office Assistant. They association will give me a 1099 at year end. I am using my personal SS number as my EIN. I am applying for the county license. I have been told I need to carry a million dollar policy. I am not a sub contractor and will only be working from the Isles office or even can work remotely from my home.
What am I required to do?

What county did you apply for a license? Do you need one to do office work? Do they think you are doing construction or something? Is does not sound right. I would really consider if you need a license. It sounds like you really should just be an employee and not a contractor if you just work for them as their employee.Here is some info to consider:https://www.irs.gov/Businesses/Small-Businesses-&-Self-Employed/Independent-Contractor-Self-Employed-or-Employee
