Can I get a W2 and a 1099 for the same job?
Asked by: dtba
My husband used to work for a plumbing company that switched to piece work instead of hourly. (Paid by the piece they installed) Well, they paid him his normal paycheck from hourly and what was left over was put towards a 1099. So, we had a W2 and a 1099 to file. Not to mention the 1099 was for $ 4800 on $ 11000 pay. I was told it was illegal for an employer to give both to an employee for the same job. Is this right?
How others found here:
