 Tax Forms

Are you going to be a contracted staff or employee? As a contracted staff you will have more flexibility with your schedule, time-off, etc. As an employee you may be required to work more consistent hours and show proof of school or other work schedules before switching availability. Contracted staff do not have taxes taken out throughout the year, they can use write-offs and they must take care of their taxes at the beginning of the year. Employees get taxes taken out each paycheck and must file their taxes at the beginning of each year.
