Los Angeles Tax Attorney

Tax Attorney Robert S. Schriebman

Whether a worker is classified as an employee or an independent contractor has serious tax consequences. A mistaken classification can leave a business scrambling to pay payroll taxes that should not be owed.

At Robert S. Schriebman, A Professional Law Corporation, we help businesses mitigate or avoid assessments based on an improper classification by the IRS or state taxing authorities. As businesses look for new ways to survive in difficult financial circumstances, tax officials are increasingly suspicious of the independent contractor classification. We can help you understand the factors that go into a proper worker classification and present your case to the Internal Revenue Service or California tax agencies.

If you are facing a tax issue based on the employee vs. independent contractor classification, contact Robert S. Schriebman, A Professional Law Corporation. Call 877-824-1563 to schedule a consultation at our offices in Los Angeles.

Employment Tax Lawyer

The IRS uses a 26-factor test to classify workers. California taxing agencies use more than 30 factors to make that determination. If either informs you that you owe taxes based on a mistaken classification, you must be able to show that these factors clearly favor independent contractor status. To do this, you need the assistance of a knowledgeable lawyer.
