Thank you all for all the information. I'll look at things and see what I need to do. If all else fails, I guess I will write it off on my taxes. As stated, the IRS probably will not do anything. But, if I contact them about the issue, I want to make sure they understand I have notified them about the situation. I don't what to come up with them asking me to pay taxes on something I didn't collect.

Again, thank you all. I have so much information about this and possible things to do. I was at such a loss with this. I have not been sleeping well since all this is going on.

IF you believe that the agency has improperly classified you as a 1099 contractor rather than a W2 employee, then the Labor Board is the place to go. If it turns out that you are legitimately 1099, then as a vendor you sue them for nonpayment.

The IRS is going to mostly be interested in YOU, namely in any Schedule C business deductions you may be claiming. They won't do anything on your behalf.

So then, I may be able to contact labor board and IRS about this issue? Hmmmmm..... will have to see how to do that. They did require hours pay by hours, but they didn't exactly declare me as an employee, but more like a contractor. I need to look at my contract and if I remember right, it hours by pay, but not employee exactly.
