In this webinar, the presenter will review the federal, state, and local tax rules applicable to gig workers. We will explain and analyze select law changes and proposals regarding the gig workforce, including California's AB 5 and changes to Form 1099-K reporting made by the American Rescue Plan Act. Tax policy considerations of proposals will be critiqued with a discussion on how aspects of the gig workforce should be considered in the modernization of tax rules.
