This doesn't surprise me and I've been saying it for years. There are very few people that claim to be 1099s that really are by the IRS definition. Its actually easier to just use a seperate company and have them bill you as a subcontractor. With the government getting cash strapped they are going to look at every body with a fine toothed comb. Small business' have always been low hanging fruit usually from the owners own ignorance or thinking they are too small for the IRS to notice.
