- For part-time, summer, or other temporary situations, it's OK (and common) for the worker to be an IC (independent contractor). My kids both got 1099-misc's from some of their summer & holiday jobs.

I'm guessing you are not in Washington State. Here people, even kids, are required to be employees or have a business license. One exception is paper delivery people.

One of the most frustrating audits I ever had was by State Industrial. They went through every check. If a check was made out to a person they wanted the payroll records or their UBI (Business license number). We had a lady come and clean every other week. They didn't fine us but insisted that she be put on payroll, since she didn't have a business license.

I'm not sure how they work IC's that come in from out of state. There is no income tax, so they wouldn't be paying tax to the state on the income they earn here.
