I was given both a W2 and 1099MISC because my employers didnt start my tax forms until mid-year, so What can I do to not have to pay Independent Contractor taxes?

I Was told when starting my job last January that they would get me a W-45 to sign. Then in July after asking them repeatedly about my taxes, they said They were going to File me as an Independent Contractor. After researching what that would mean to me, I told them i can't work for them if I wasnt being filed as an employee. So they scrambled and finally got me a W-4 to sign. I just recently left that job, and I then recieved both a W-2 AND a 1099MISC tax form, because apparently they didnt file the first 7 months of me working there as an employee like they said they would, but instead filed me as an Independent Contractor like they were going to do from the beginning. What can I do to get this fixed?

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
