This is what my CPA has always told me, but I have to say my wife worked for a real estate mag for over 20 years in the office handling calls and in the field taking photos using his equipment on his schedule and got a 1099 every year. When the economy crapped out she was laid off, filed for unemployment and was told no go, she was a subcontractor. My CPA has no answer for this.
