* IRS Commentary - “The general rule is that an individual is an independent contractor if the payer has the right to control or direct only the result of the work and not what will be done and how it will be done.
An independent contractor, or 1099 Contractor, provides a W-9 form when beginning employment. Those who are paid more than $600 per year are issued 1099 forms. Payment is generally assessed by the completion of a job, not by the exact quantity of hours worked.
