"The difference between an employee and an independent contractor hinges on control in the workplace," says Stephanie Breedlove, head of HomePay, managed by Breedlove. "An employee is someone who doesn't have control of their work environment and therefore reports to and works for someone else."
You have an employer-employee relationship with your senior aid, meaning that you are in control of how she spends the day with your parent or elderly relative. She takes your loved one to run errands, helps them get ready for the day, administers their medication and handles any issues that come up - all based on your strategies or the advice of a physician. Together, you are a team, but ultimately you call the shots and she is an employee. And as an employee, she comes to your home (or your senior's home) and uses any necessary supplies provided there.
What Is an Independent Contractor? "An independent contractor, if classified correctly, has complete control of their work environment," she says.
"Senior caregivers are classified as employees and don't meet the independent contractor criteria; therefore, the employer must administer the payroll and tax process, withhold the taxes correctly and remit them to the government," comments Breedlove.
It may seem easier to have your senior helper file as a contractor, but because she is a household employee, your incorrect filing will be considered tax evasion by the IRS. "If you misclassify your senior caregiver, you are subject to tax evasion charges, and that comes with back taxes and penalties that everyone wants to avoid," says Breedlove.
It will also be worse financially for her to file as a contractor. She will end up paying more taxes at the end of the year because she will be required to pay self-employment taxes as a contractor. Yes, at least she is filing, but if she hasn't been keeping up with those additional taxes all year long, she could end up owing a lot of extra money come April. And having her file as an independent contractor will disqualify her from certain government benefits, such as unemployment insurance.
