I was hired by a husband to provide care for his wife in their home. I have worked for them for the past 3 years and have always considered him my employer as anything that needs to be done needs to go through him first. I asked him several times if he could withhold taxes out of my checks and he said he didn't want to do that as he would have to match whatever he took from me. I work set hours and set days. I do NOT work for anyone else. There are also 2 other ladies who provide care for his wife in the evenings and on my days off. I am wondering, am I considered self-employed or is he my employer? I have received several contradicting solutions to this horrific problem the 3 of us have run in to. He said his CPA told him to give us each a 1099 form, but in this are included hotel expenses, grocery expenses for his household, money for his wife. He had us pay for things and said he would reimburse us, yet now we are going to have to pay taxes on THEIR household expenses. Any help with this would be wonderful....I know what I think, but a solid, ground answer would be great. We live in North Dakota.
