From the very limited information you provided in your post, I suspect your employer is abusing the independent contractor rules. The IRS, Social Security Administration, U.S. Department of Labor, and probably your state's labor-regulating agency take a dim view of employers treating legitimate employees as contractors.You may want to ask your employer why he or she thinks you're a contractor. If your employer doesn't provide a satisfactory response, then you may want to complain to your state's labor-regulating agency.In a previous thread http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=18545852&sort=whole there was some discussion regarding the difference between an employee and a contractor.Is there any liability or consequences to the employee/contractor if an employer mischaracterizes the relationship?Granted the filing of taxes changes and perhaps the amount of taxes paid might be affected but is there any potential legal problems on the part of the employee?
