YANMTA. You are not my tax accountant.

Am I saving enough for taxes from my second job? I live in the US and have no state income taxes. My main job is W2. I make around $56k and usually end up close to even on my Fed return. I now have a second job that's 1099. I get paid $150 a week and set aside $50. Is this probably enough for Fed (income/SS) taxes?

1099 contract when I was told I'd be w2, how do I navigate this?

On Tuesday I drove across country to start a new role in the Bay Area. Prior to this I was working on a year-long contract which wasn't renewed. During the interview process I was looking for a full time role, but was convinced that this was a good opportunity, particularly to get my foot in the door back in the Bay Area where I'm originally from and still have family. During the interview I was asked specifically what type of contracting I would be open to and said that I was only interested in W2ing to a new role rather than becoming an independent contractor and billing, and I stated that I wasn't interested in 1099ing. The rate I provided reflected this as well. Turns out I've been onboarded as a 1099 and the rate that I was looking for as a W2. [more inside]

1099s sent off to IRS, 1096 left behind. Now what?

Theoretically, say you are a small business/non-profit and you mailed off ~150 1099 forms to the IRS last week (deadline was 2/28). Say you came into work this morning and the 1096 summary form that is supposed to accompany the 1099s was found to have fallen out of the envelope and onto the floor before sealing. How would one go about resolving this?

A taxing situation

Looking for some tax help ! We refinanced a mortgage last April, going from a traditional bank to a savings & loan. During the process, we also closed the bank line of credit and opened a new one at the S&L. The bank held an escrow, but the S&L does not. My 1099 from the S&L has a modest earned interest amount for the period of April - December, but the bank's 1099 is more than 10x that amount. Is this due to the escrow, or is this a mistake ?

Everyone avoided taxes. Now what?

My boss at my new job has most likely been mischaracterizing his employees as 1099's rather than W-2's. They paid their federal and state income taxes, but never their social security. Now they owe back taxes and penalties. Who's liable? [more inside]
