I was working for a consulting company in New York. They had me under a 1099. Back then I didnt know the difference between the two and didnt file taxes for three years. I remember back in 2008 they all of a sudden switched me to w2 stating the changes were done because of tax issues. Now the IRS is hitting me with a hefty bill. i feel as if during those three years i should of been on a W2. What are options and how can I go about this.
