Subject:Contractor 1099 From:DBarr41088 -at- AOL -dot- COM Date:Wed, 5 May 1999 16:05:35 EDT
Today is my last day as an Agency Contractor. My next project does not start
until a month from now. I want to go solo... What does Contractor 1099 mean
(sole business owner/company/organization)? What kind of paperwork do I have
to file/process to get there? Do I need a business license? What are the
advantages and disadvantages?
