Cincinnati Tax Information

Are You Concerned About Independent Contractor Tax?

As a self-employed independent contractor you are required to pay taxes on your income and taxes that go towards government programs such as Social Security and Medicare. Taxes can be complicated and intimidating for most people to understand. Work with a Cincinnati independent contractor tax attorney who can advise you on your tax obligations and assist you in filing to correct forms and payments.

Independent Contractor Tax Obligations and Deductions

When you work for yourself you must regularly pay income and social services taxes just like people who work for employers. However, independent contractors can deduct business expenses before being taxes on their net profits. Keep track of your earnings, job-related expenses and use the assistance of a tax attorney to get your tax obligations in order.

Top Questions to Ask When Hiring an Attorney

  • How many years have you been practicing law? How long have you practiced law in the local area?
  • How many cases similar to mine have you handled in the past?
  • What is the likely outcome for my case?

In legal practice, experience matters. An experienced attorney will likely have handled issues similar to yours many, many times. Therefore, after listening to your situation, the attorney should have a reasonable idea of the time line for a case like yours and the likely resolution.

How to Prepare for Your Initial Consultation

Prepare for your consultation by writing down notes of your understanding of the case, jot down questions and concerns for the attorney, and gather your documents. Remember that you are trying to get a sense of whether the attorney has your trust and can help you address your legal issues. Questions should include how the attorney intends to resolve your issue, how many years he/she has been practicing law and specifically practicing in your area, as well as how many cases similar to yours the attorney has handled. It can also be helpful to broach the subject of fees so that you understand the likely cost and structure of your representation by a specific attorney and/or legal team.

Does firm size matter?

For most consumer legal issues, the size of the practice is much less important than the experience, competence, and reputation of the attorney(s) handling your case. Among the most important factors when choosing an attorney are your comfort level with the attorney or practice and the attorney's track record in bringing about quick, successful resolutions to cases similar to yours.
