Boy did I have YOU fooled.

Who thought the unincorporated choices were just W2 and 1099 and thinks maybe the contract agency is confused, as they told him hr was corp to corp and not W2 or 1099...

Yeah you DO have me fooled :)

Back in the "old" days at a contracting agency I placed contract workers in major IT corporations or technical writers with corporations. We had the contract workers/employees sign an agreement either as our employee or an independent contractor (it was the same to us since we received the same money from the contracting company).

If employee we deducted BOTH ends of SS and Medicare from the contract employee fee (and in some cases included healthcare and fringes -- all of which the "employee" paid) otherwise it was a strict fee for service 1099 with VERY strict work requirements.

Maybe now they consider that agreement a corp to corp agreement. The relationship probably has changed with stricter IRS regulations. You remain the "expert."
