IRS Launches Voluntary Worker Misclassification Forgiveness Program

As part of a new “Fresh Start” program initiated by the Internal Revenue Service employers who are currently, or have been misclassifying their workforce can now voluntarily come clean for a “minimal payment” that will cover their past payroll tax obligations.

The IRS seem to be slowly eliminating any excuse employers might make when misclassifying their workforce to avoid paying their appropriate tax obligations.
