Currently, Snag Workers are independent contractors – you set your own hours, and work when and where you want. We don’t require you to work any number of hours or shifts weekly. Snag doesn’t withhold tax, Social Security, and Medicare from the wages you’re paid.

When it comes to taxes, here’s what you need to know: the earnings of a person who is working as an independent contractor may be subject to Self-Employment Tax according to the IRS. Read up on the Self-Employment Tax at the IRS website.

Starting in January 2019, Snag Work will begin migrating from a 1099 platform to a W2 platform. Existing workers will convert from independent contractors to W2 workers, and new hires will automatically become employees of Snag Work and be eligible for a better work experience and benefits.
