Therefore, at any given time of dispute in the company, the owner can be in a position of defending himself/company without fully relying the independent contractors report (Barron, 1998). There are factors that would help this case, and these factors are not limited to as follows; as a business owner, I am not obliged nor required by law to pay taxes for an independent contractor hired.
