No. Clients who ask for this because they think it will protect them from
IRS scrutiny are laboring under a misconception. The rules the IRS uses to
determine who is an employee and who is an independent contractor have to do
with the conditions under which the work is performed. The IRS has stated
explicitly that incorporation is irrelevant to this determination. ...RM
