Form SS-8, Determination of Worker Status for Purposes of Federal Employment Taxes and Income Tax Withholding

Firms and workers file this form to request a determination of the status of a worker for purposes of federal employment taxes and income tax withholding.

Filing a Form SS-8 requesting a “worker status” determination means you or the firm is asking the Service to establish if the services you provide to the firm are those of an employee or an independent contractor.

A Form SS-8 should not be filed for supplemental wage issues.
