I’m a consultant. Up until recently I was working for MBO partners. They contracted to one of their clients to me, they’re more of a middleman. Basically MBO acts as my employer, paying taxes and providing insurance coverage. Its good and not good at the same time. They provide all the legal coverage I need but take a hefty fee. They’re restructuring the service I’m on and because of that, I’m going to be getting a 1099 from them instead of a W2.
