IRS Information on Partnerships
A partnership is the relationship existing between two or more persons who join to carry on a trade or business. A partnership must file an annual information return to report the income, deductions, gains, losses, etc., from its operations, but it does not pay income tax. Instead, it “passes through” any profits or losses to its partners. Each partner includes his or her share of the partnership’s income or loss on his or her tax return.

Accounting for Independent Contractors (Self-Employed) or Employees
Employers are often confused by the difference between and employee and an independent contractor. The IRS requires an employer to withhold income taxes, withhold and pay Social Security and Medicare taxes, and pay unemployment tax on wages paid to an employee. An employer generally does not have to withhold or pay any taxes on payments to independent contractors. Click on the link above to read more.
