Does that mean that your income is now 1099 instead of W-2, so now you would be using Schedule C for self-employment incomeYeah, the phrasing bothers me too. I think this person doesn't realize that, as an independent contractor, he or she is technically self-employed and is required to pay double Social Security tax, to file quarterly income tax estimates, and to provide his or her own benefits such as health insurance. Oh, and of course, there are no more paid holidays or vacations.The retirement plan is the least of the grief. I would never advise anyone to switch from a real job to being a contractor if there was any option, because if they appear to be receiving about the same income, the contractor is actually taking a HUGE hit in income.
