What kind of info...

What kind of info does a massage therapist need to provide when filing taxes and they were working for someone else

Accountant's Assistant: The Accountant will know how to help. Please tell me more, so we can help you best.

The tax from that they received from their employer was not a 40k

Accountant's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Accountant should know?

The massage therapist may have not been covered by some kind of liability insurance.

If a massage therapist, or anyone for that matter works for someone else, they should either receive a Form W2 or 1099-MISC from the person that they are working for. If the person is an employee, a Form W2 should be issued. If the person is an Independent Contractor, a Form 1099-MISC should be issued to that person. If you have other deductions, other documentation might be required.

--------------------------

In closing, my goal is to provide you with the best experience possible! Hopefully, the service that I have provided has earned a 5-star rating!
