Now you are getting into a gray area as to whether your status on that job is that of an employee or independent contractor.They offered me a job as a contractor as a counselor
I get paid by the hour and the company I am contracted with bills insurance and Medicaid. I do have professional liability insurance.Now you are getting into a gray area as to whether your status on that job is that of an employee or independent contractor.
What are your duties? How will you be paid? Do you invoice your client for the time spent with their clients? Or do they pay you by the hour? How much control do they exert over your activities? Are you still able to provide counseling services to your own clients? Do you have a written contract?
You still have to be aware of the difference between employee and independent contractor even though you have an LLC for your counseling business.
PS: Do you have professional liability insurance?
If you are operating the counseling business under your LLC, then you should use the EIN number for your LLC.What is the name of your state? Georgia
I am a small business owner of an llc. I signed a 1099 contract with a private company. Should I use my business EIN to get paid from them or my personal ssn. I am a counselor and I will be taking on clients as a counselor from them.
You stated that you have an LLC. If you are doing the counseling work under your LLC then you should use the EIN number of your LLC. If you are doing the counseling work separately from your LLC, then you should use your SSN. In other words, it depends on how you intend to operate.Thank you but that was not the question. My question pertained to if I should sign up as a contractor using my ein, since I am a counselor or should I use my ssn
That doesn't make any difference. Just because you are a contractor for those clients doesn't mean that you cannot do it under your LLC.OK, so basically, it will be a personal decision? The company that hired me as a contractor do not have a preference. Since my LLC is a counseling business, that is why I thought I should use my EIN but the clients are clients of their business. I am their contractor.
