States cracking down on 1099 misclassifications

I have heard more and more about States coming down on businesses that misclassify employees in order to avoid paying payroll taxes (and workers compensation insurance). 

So far, Florida and New York are leading the battle. 

Be sure that if you are using sub-contractors/1099’ed workers, that you are playing by the rules and conform to the 20 questions that the DOL puts out there.
