1099 vs employee
1099 independent contractors need to have multiple contracts with various entities -not just work as 1099 for one company- otherwise you are actually
an employee. IRS says income must be from various sources. 1099ers pay for all
their Medicare taxes (15% I believe is the total for 2010) -as an employee your employer will pay half- makes a big difference monetarily. Yes, you can deduct the moon- but remember when an employer in the future goes to check your past earnings- say for a new job- your social security earnings will be what he views and this will be very low if indeed you subtract any and all possible deductions- might be hard to ask for that big dollar job, Your social security retirement is based on your reported social security earnings- may not make a difference when you are young but sure will as you age as far as what you are entitled to.
At a young age- with no experience- a w2 is the way to go.
