Is There a Penalty for Misclassifying my Homeschool Group’s Workers?
The IRS imposes strict penalties on an employer who treats workers as Independent Contractors when they should be employees. These penalties have put businesses and nonprofits out of business. Carol Topp, the Homeschool CPA, discusses this topic and some programs the IRS has to avoid crippling penalties.

FEATURED PRODUCT from HomeschoolCPA:
Paying Workers in a Homeschool Organization
- Is your homeschool teacher an employee or independent contractor?
- Should your homeschool co-op director be paid as an employee?
- How hard is it to set up a payroll system?
- What happens if my homeschool group misclassifies a worker? Are their penalties?
Worker classification can be a confusing topic.
My book Paying Workers in a Homeschool Organization can help clear a lot of confusion, but perhaps you want to discuss your particular situation in a private, individual phone consultation.
I offer phone consultations to help you determine if your homeschool organization’s workers are employee or independent contractors. The phone call will be followed up with an email containing a fact-based determination and information to help you take the next steps.
