    I'm confused, too.

    How did we get from:

    "a business which includes farm work with large animals, large rambunctious dogs, large reptiles, etc" and "10x10 barn stall with a <2000lb draft horse"

    To:

    "pet-sitting"?
    "Pet-Sitting" is the type of insurance we are required to hold through general liability.That's the distinction. They go to client's locations to clean horse stalls, feed a 60+ alpaca farm, walk a toy poodle or a great dane, or just to empty a 2lb cat's litter box. All of which are actual, existing client needs. Pets range in many different sizes and are not limited to cats and dogs.

    OK, I buy that as an insurance classification for the type of services performed but that has nothing to do with whether your workers are independent contractors or employees.

    Again, a look at your contract with the workers would help.

    Do you have a written contract with your workers?

    Unfortunately, with the exception of tax attorneys, attorneys generally know next to nothing about tax and are not equipped to make a determination as to how your workers should be classified. They can draw up really good contracts for you, but they cannot determine whether or not you are misclassifying them.
    This.

    Employment law attorneys, especially those dealing with employer workman’s comp obligations, also generally can make determinations of how workers should be classified. While the exact lines for employment determinations may be a bit different between various employment related laws (like workman’s comp) and tax law regarding classification, in vast majority of cases the determination will be turn out the same.
