If the statutory employee box on your W-2 (box 13) is not marked, do NOT mark it on your W-2 entry form.

You would probably know if you were a statutory employee.  According to the IRS:

If workers are independent contractors under the common law rules, such workers may nevertheless be treated as employees by statute (statutory employees) for certain employment tax purposes if they fall within any one of the . . . four categories and meet . . . three conditions described under  Social Security and Medicare taxes , below.

The forum answers do nothing but repeat the rhetoric of the canned AI answer.

I deleted the W2, re-imported the same W2, again noting that none of our W2's had box 13 checked as statutory employee and the error message in the check sequence comes up every time. What now?

This prevents us from filing taxes electronically as if forces review on review on review because it says it is an error.

How about instead of importing it enter it manually?
