Given your degree of concern in using help that does fit federal requirements, I would say that a temp agency would work out best for you. That person is going to be generating close to $100 per hour for you, so there is still a good level of profit margin left for you.
Thanks. A temp agency is the best that I have figured out so far. I did use my brother-in-law for a couple of large jobs.
One of my BNI contacts told me that the IRS is trying very hard to dissallow the 1099 classification for employees in almost all circumstances. This is a NEW development. It's not at all helpful to small and micro businesses like my own, but that's what we have to live with.
Small businesses around me are having to stop the practice, and they are not at all happy about it.
