Contracting can be dangerous. About 10 years ago, one of my friends found out too late that the contract company she worked for (I think
it was Belcan or Belcon or something like that) was not withholding properly & she ended up owing $20K to Uncle Sam - they had to file bankruptcy - this was before the "kinder, gentler IRS". They have
only recently come out of the bankruptcy.

I worked contract for specgroup (now tmp.com) last year & part of this year with no tax/SS issues. It all depends on the contracting agency.
