Your employer is playing in a game that years ago you were able to get away with. It was very common. hats not the case anymore. 1099's are for businesses. There are some jobs that you can legally be a 1099 independent contractor but this isn't one of them. He is more at risk than you. Not only does the govt do audits, the insurance companies do as well. I learned this the hard way and wrote about it years ago on here. I had a cpa and no idea i was doing anything wrong. Until i got an insurance audit and a bill for $25,000. Then a state audit and a bill for back taxes that i am still paying now, years after i closed the business. Yes. Some still get away with it....for now...but it wont last forever.
