Nothing's black and white.

If you do the vast majority of your work for one client, but you have many other small clients at the same time, or over the course of the tax year, I can't imagine being hassled by the IRS. I never have been, nor have any of our clients.

Of course, if it went on for years, you might draw some closer investigation. But I know of a couple of contractors who worked 100% for the same client--totally on site, using the client's equipment--or several years, and were never bothered by the IRS. They finally left when the work dried up, but I'm talking about 4 and 5 years.

*I* certainly wouldn't try that, but who knows what your experience might be?
