Hi, Phil,

A 1099 form is an information return, though colloquially called a tax return, which is used to report income other than wages, salaries, and tips. It is used most commonly by independent contractors or non-employees who are usually paid hourly rates or lump sum fees. The contractor is responsible for paying her own federal, state, and social security taxes. There are no deductions taken out by the payor. This means the contractor should charge 30% - 50% more than usual rates for such jobs.

Hope this helps.

Best, Trish

Not only do I need money sooner than six weeks, but, potentially, I could complete my contract before seeing any money--and who knows whether they will pay.
