    Hello everybody!

    I deliver food for food delivery apps and deliver packages for Amazon. I receive their 1099s. My accountant suggested an S Corporation to save on taxes. I have had this S Corporation for two years now. Now I am getting into truck driving. As a truck driver I will be the employee of the trucking company. Will my S Corporation still help me or I will have no choice but to dissolve it?

    Thank you!

    Yes, it can help you. Pay yourself a reasonable rate, and the rest is taxed as profit.

    I called a tax professional, and they told me that I could use my corporation only if I do 1099 with the trucking company, not when I am their W2 employee.

    Yeah, ok don’t listen to that tax professional, just another clueless ….

    so to qualify, the company you “work” for has to actually hire you through your company and in doing so there has to, not a suggestion but HAS TO have a legal binding contract.

    and in that contract, there has to be a well defined roles and responsibilities listed with a means of an exit.

    this means you are legally a contractor and being one, there is a lot of limitations on you.

    You can only use your LLC, SCorp or any other as a 1099 contractor. W-2 means you’re an EMPLOYEE of that company. They will take our taxes, provide insurance etc.
