099 | Pros and Cons of W2 vs. 1099 Roles

As a practicing PA, you likely have seen different job postings for both W2 roles and 1099 roles. But  which one is better? The answer to that question depends on your specific situation and what you value since they each have several pros and cons. For example, W2 roles have benefits through the employer, while if you're an independent contractor in a 1099 role, you're responsible for setting up your own benefits. On the other hand, 1099 roles can help you lower your tax liability, and you will likely have more flexibility and autonomy. Take a listen to learn the differences to help you decide which type of role is best for you!
