[Discuss] how to contract correctly?

> Before you take a client, ask your accountant if you should do the 1099 or
> W2 with them.  The answer should be either No, you don't do it at all, or
> Business 1099, where you do the 1099 using your business name and business
> EIN.  The whole point is, maintain your LLC as a layer in between you and
> your client.  You definitely need an accountant.

Don't go W2! If you are an independent contractor, W2 defeats your tax
advantages. A W2 means you are an employee.
