Default Contractor with Blooms Today

Ive been working from home for awhile now with Blooms Today. They do it as a contractor but it feels no different to me. I get paid hourly and direct deposit every two weeks. They are hiring right now too since the holidays are coming, but I would recommend to do it

Hope this helps!

Smile Great information!

Also if anyone knows of others out there that are not on this list please feel free to add them and I will make this list a sticky since it is asked frequently.

In my opinion it is always better to work as an employee instead of a contractor. For me, it is a matter of job security and this factor alone is enough to make your decision.

This list is very helpful. I checked some link and they are really useful. But It's not easy to find work online. You need patience and and you have to be prepared. Build your portfolio strong and always work with Esignature it will help you to sign documents online with your client. Building portfolio take some time but it will definitely give you profit.

Default Contractor vs. Employee

That is an extensive list. Thanks for posting. Very helpful

I know these days many companies including Daily Transcription that I work for turn to contractor employees as it saves the smaller companies money and time. In that way they are able to pass the savings along to their clients which makes it easier for them to obtain new clients.

As a contractor, I have not had to pay out federal taxes since we currently have 8 in the house and my husband is working. I am able to deduct which offsets my taxes. It would be a fact of setting up to pay into your state taxes primarily for social security benefits, etc. If you look online for your state there should be a form to set it up.

Mostly it is a little time consuming making sure I am saving receipts etc. if needed but most of it is depreciation of equipment I was already using for personal use.

Good luck in your job venture

Working as a contractor you can forget about a normal pension, so only an employee.
