I my experience, the company you work for dictates which tax-type you need to
be. I've worked for companies that would only let me work W2 (ugh), others
for whom 1099 was just dandy (wonderful!), and others who were afraid of the
IRS and required incorporation. I really don't want to go the incorporation
route, so in those cases, W2 has been the only alternative.
Just because you have a federal tax ID or are incorporated doesn't preclude
you from working under any of the other arenas.
