“Taxing the Gig Economy”
When it comes to the gig economy, it is hard to pinpoint the amount of activity that flies under the radar and outside the seeing eyes of the IRS. Because tax operates on the honor system, tax authorities believe there is low compliance with tax obligations among gig workers, creating an environment ripe for enforcement. On the employer side of the coin, corporate strategies to avoid tax obligations by “misclassifying” employees have been leading to litigation. State and local taxes further complicate compliance, especially when gig workers operate across jurisdictions. Join TaxOps’ business advisers Stacey Roberts and Meredith Smith as they explore the gig economy through the lens of taxation.
