Website-   How to Fill out IRS SS-8.png

  What is the SS-8?  Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Form SS-8 is used when you think you might be misclassified as a worker and want the IRS to make an official determination.  They use common law rules for purposes of federal employment taxes and income tax withholding. Generally, under the common law rules a worker is an employee if the firm has the right to control what will be done and how it will be done.  

You can only request a Form SS-8 determination to resolve federal tax matters. You can't request a determination for proposed transactions or hypothetical situations.


How long do I have to report a salon owner?  Generally, you must file your claim for a credit or refund within 3 years from the date your original return was filed or within 2 years from the date the tax was paid, whichever is later. Filing Form SS-8 does not prevent the expiration of the time in which a claim for a refund must be filed.



What is the determination process?  The IRS will acknowledge the receipt of your Form SS-8 by sending you a letter. The IRS will also send the salon owner a letter alerting them of the accusations against them.  Because there are usually more than one stylist or worker involved, the IRS will ask the salon owner to provide contact information for everyone who has worked for them in the past 2-3 years.  The IRS will then send SS-8 forms to those other workers to complete also because they need to collect information from every potential victim possible. 

Once the information is gathered from all parties involved it is assigned to a technician who will review the facts, apply the law, and render a decision. The technician may ask you and the other workers involved for additional information or from third parties that could help clarify the working relationship.  It is important that you comply with all the requests made by the IRS even if you have already provided the information they are asking for. 

This entire process can take up to 6 months.  There are 3 different types of letters that the IRS might send out:

  • Determination letter: This is a binding notice that urges the salon owner to change the worker’s classification.

  • Information letter: Though not binding, this notice could help the worker complete their federal tax obligations.

  • Courtesy letter (rare): This is not binding and is used for the worker to complete their federal tax obligations.


What do I send with the SS-8?  Because this is essentially an investigation, you will need to send copies of evidence to support all the claims you are making on the form.  Remember, the more information you can provide the investigator the better.  Also, do not be alarmed if the IRS requests you to provide the same information more than once, simply comply and provide them the information again so not to drag out the process any longer than it already takes.  Do not send original forms, make sure to make copies to send.

Supporting documents include but are not limited to:

  • Tax form 1099-MISC and/or 1099-NEC

  • Job description given to you by the salon owner

  • Signed employment contract

  • Employee/Salon handbook

  • Training or continuing education certification if required to attend by salon owner

  • Copies of work schedules or messages talking about scheduling

  • Paycheck Stubs

  • Bank deposit records of payment from salon owner

  • Signed Non-compete agreement

  • Text conversation about working particular days or hours

  • Text conversion about mandatory meeting/training

  • Memos or other written communication from the salon to you


Where do I send SS-8?


Internal Revenue Service

Form SS-8 Determinations 

P.O. Box 630 Stop 631

Holtsville, NY 11742-0630


Should I still file my tax return, or wait for determination?  Filing Form SS-8 does not alter the requirement to timely file an income tax return. Do not delay filing your tax return in anticipation of an answer to your Form SS-8 request. In addition, if applicable,  do not delay in responding to a request for payment while waiting for a determination of your worker status.  If it is determined that you are/were indeed misclassified, you will then be required to amend your tax return which you will then want to consult with an accountant to do.


How do I fill out the form?  It is important to fill out the form as detailed and complete as possible.  Do not leave any blanks, if it does not apply to the situation simply reply with “not applicable.” Make sure to use specific names and titles, do not just put “salon owner,” use the actual name of the owner.   Form SS-8 will be returned to the requestor if all required information is not provided.  When filling out the form, know that the term “firm” refers to the salon/owner in question. 


There are 4 parts to the SS-8:

  1. General Information

  2. Behavioral Control

  3. Relationship of the Worker and Firm

  4. For Service Providers or Salespersons 


We will now take you through the application, but please note that the advice detailed below is for educational purposes only and is not meant to replace a certified public accountant or attorney nor should it be construed as legal advice. If you have additional questions we advise you to seek proper legal and/or tax advice from licensed and/or certified professionals.


PART I General Information:

  1. This form is being completed by:  (Firm) (Worker); for services performed (beginning date) to (ending date).

    1. The stylist is considered the Worker.  If you do not know the exact dates you worked for the salon owner use your best estimate.

  2. Explain your reason(s) for filing this form (for example, you received a bill from the IRS, you believe you erroneously received a Form 1099 or Form W-2, you are unable to get workers' compensation benefits, or you were audited or are being audited by the IRS).

    1. More than likely your answer here is going to be that you “erroneously received a form 1099.”  This means that the salon owner has given you a Form 1099-MISC/NEC implying that you are an independent contractor, but they are treating you as an employee.  

    2. If you have not actually received a Form 1099-MISC/NEC from the salon owner you would respond with something along the lines of, “I have been told by the salon owner, (NAME), that I am an independent contractor, but they are treating me like an employee.”

  3.   The total number of workers who performed or are performing the same or similar services:

    1. Basically, this is the number of stylists or other workers who have worked at the same time as you.  Don’t forget to include those who are no longer working there.  This also does not mean that you only count those who are in a similar situation as you, they are wanting the total number of workers no matter what their relationship with the salon owner is/was.

  4.    How did the worker obtain the job? (Application) (Bid) (Employment Agency) (Other- specify)

    1. How did you obtain the job?  The most common answer considering industry business practices, you first filled out an “application.”  If you reached out to the salon to inquire if they were hiring and did not have to fill out an application you will check the other box and then specify that you “made a personal inquiry.”

  5.  Attach copies of all supporting documentation (for example, contracts, invoices, memos, Forms W-2 or Forms 1099-MISC issued or received, IRS closing agreements or IRS rulings). In addition, please inform us of any current or past litigation concerning the worker’s status. If no income reporting forms (Form 1099-MISC or W-2) were furnished to the worker, enter the amount of income earned for the year(s) at issue.

    1. If you have Form(s) 1099-MISC/NEC or W-2, you can write “see attached supporting documentation” in the space provided.  

    2. If you have not received either of these Forms, you will want to provide supporting documentation that you were paid by the salon owner.  This can include bank statements, check stubs, deposit slips, and/or electronic money transfer receipts (Venmo, Zelle, PayPal).  Take the totals from your supporting documents and fill it in the space provided on the SS-8.

  6. If both Form W-2 and Form 1099-MISC were issued or received, explain why.

    1. It is unlikely that this situation will apply to you, so write “not applicable” in the space provided.  

    2. An example of when you might receive both a W-2 and 1099-MISC from the same salon owner is if they switched your position during your duration of employment.

      1. “I was originally hired as a commissioned based employee from (date started) to (date end) and received a Form W-2.  From (date started) to (date ended or current) I was considered a booth renter and (salon owner’s name) gave me a 1099-Misc/Nec.”

    3. Some owners have been known to provide the stylist a W-2 for their regular salary, but if they make a commission from retail sales, the salon owner will issue a 1099-MISC for the commission paid.

  7. Describe the firm’s business.

    1. “The firm is a salon that provides beauty services to the public by licensed professionals including but not limited to cutting, chemical processing and styling of hair, facial/body waxing, mani/pedicures, facials, eyelash/hair extensions.”

  8. If the worker received pay from more than one entity because of an event such as the sale, merger, acquisition, or reorganization of the firm for whom the services are performed, provide the following: Name of the firm's previous owner; Previous owner's taxpayer identification number.

    1. An example of what they are looking for is if the salon was bought out by a different owner while you were working there, but the new owners didn’t change the way you were classified or treated.  If you don’t know the owner’s taxpayer identification number the bad news is that there’s no convenient, searchable database in which you can just type in the name of the company and get its EIN — if it’s a private company. Here are some things that you can do:

      1. Simply ask the owner for the number and tell them it is for tax purposes.

      2. Contact the company’s payroll or accounting department and ask for the EIN.

      3. Get the company’s business credit report through a credit bureau like Experian, Equifax or Dun & Bradstreet. You can purchase or view another company’s credit report, which contains their EIN.

      4. Hire a service to look up the EIN for you.

      5. Check to see if the company filed any local or federal registration forms, which can sometimes be found online.

Description of above change:

This is where you are going to explain that you originally worked for (business name) and they were bought out by (business name).


Date of change (MM/DD/YY):

When did the new owner take over the salon?

  1. Describe the work done by the worker and provide the worker’s job title.

    1. What the IRS is looking for here is if you were providing services that the salon does not provide which is one of the factors of the IRS 20 Factor Test used to determine whether a worker is an employee or truly an independent contractor.  Most likely, you are providing services that the salon offers as a business.  You want your answer to this question to be a lot like the answer you provided to question number 6. 

    2. “Licensed cosmetologist that provides beauty services to the public including but not limited to cutting, chemical processing and styling of hair, facial/body waxing, mani/pedicures, facials, eyelash/hair extensions.”

  2. Explain why you believe the worker is an employee or an independent contractor.

    1. This is where you get to tell the IRS why you are being misclassified.  Here are some examples of things that you might be experiencing:

      1. Given a schedule to follow by the owner

      2. Hours have to be approved by the owner

      3. Told when, where & how to perform services

      4. Required to attend meetings/training

      5. Not allowed to work at another competing salon

      6. Asked to sign a non-compete agreement

      7. Not allowed to hire own employees

      8. Not able to come and go as you please

      9. Trained and follow opening and closing procedures

      10. Perform services using salon supplies, product and/or equipment

      11. Receive payment from salon owner, not clients

      12. Required to give salon owner client contact information

      13. Required to use salon centralized booking/scheduling

      14. Clients must go through the salon to book appointments

      15. All services performed in the salon or if performed off-site they are done in the salon’s name

      16. On the salon’s regular payroll

      17. Have a continuing relationship and regularly show up at the salon to work 

      18. Required for providing reports for services performed in order for pay to be determined

      19. Have not made a significant investment in the salon

      20. Do not pay rent to operate space

      21. Can quite when you want to without breaking a contract/lease

      22. Can be fired by the owner

  3.  Did the worker perform services for the firm in any capacity before providing the services that are the subject of this determination request? (Yes) (No) (NA)

    1. More than likely your answer is going to be “NO” unless before working at the salon as a stylist, you worked at the salon in a different capacity, for instance, if you were first a receptionist and then moved to the floor as a stylist, or you were first an assistant and then moved to take your own clients.

    2. If “Yes,” what were the dates of the prior service?

      1. The dates did you work in the other position.

    3. If “Yes,” explain the differences, if any, between the current and prior service.

      1. Generally, if you were an assistant or receptionist you are under the direct supervision of someone else, thus making you an employee who should receive a Form W-2.

  4.  If the work is done under a written agreement between the firm and the worker, attach a copy (preferably signed by both parties). Describe the terms and conditions of the work arrangement.

    1. If you have a copy of the employment contract or lease agreement summarize the conditions of the agreement in the space provided.  

    2. If you only had a verbal agreement, you are not out of luck because in most states verbal agreements still hold up.  If this is the case, provide a detailed description of the terms as you understand them in the space provided.  If the terms or conditions of your employment were discussed via text or email, you will want to print off the exchange and include it with the SS-8.


Part II Behavioral Control:


  1. What specific training and/or instruction is the worker given by the firm?

    1. Here are some examples:

    2. Trained on opening and closing procedures

    3. Required to obtain special certifications whether a specific brand, application method or service (eyelash extensions, hair extensions, balayage methods, etc.)

    4. Required to provide services in a certain manner (every client must be dried and styled before they leave, clarify every perm before wrapping, have to add Olaplex to all lightening processes, etc.)

    5. Required to train under a veteran stylist before taking on own clientele

    6. Trained on a certain method of scheduling clients

    7. Required to collect payment at a centralized location

    8. Required to have senior stylist double-check work before the client pays

  2.  How does the worker receive work assignments?

    1. If clients contact you personally to book their appointments, this is what you will use as your answer.

      1. “Clients book their appointment for services by contacting me directly either by calling, messaging via social media, or my personal online booking system.”

    2. If clients contact the salon directly to book their appointments with you, whether it is by calling the salon phone number, via social media, salon website, or through the salon’s receptionist, you will use this as your answer.

      1. “Clients are required to book their appointments with me by first going through the salon whether it is by calling the salon’s phone number, messaging via the salon’s social media platforms, or the salon’s online booking system.”

  3.  Who determines the methods by which the assignments are performed?

    1. More than likely this is the “salon owner” (make sure when filling in the blank you use the salon owner’s first and last names.  

    2. If you are in complete control over the process from beginning to end in which you achieve the client’s request you would put “your name.”  This includes having control over what brands of products you use, not just the steps taken.

  4.  Who is the worker required to contact if problems or complaints arise and who is responsible for their resolution?

    1. If you are truly independent, you handle all problems and/or complaints the best way you find suitable and you would put “your name” in the space provided.  

    2. If the salon owner is ever involved or the client has the understanding that they would go to the salon owner with their issues, you put the “salon owner's name” in the space provided.

  5.  What types of reports are required from the worker? Attach examples.

    1. If you are working on commission of services rendered you have to inform the salon owner (or receptionist who is an employee of the salon) what services you completed in order for your pay to be determined.  This is a type of report that you provide the salon owner.  

      1. “Pay is based on a commission of services rendered.  In order for (salon owner’s name) to know how much to pay me each week, I would have to log every service I did on every client into the salon’s centralized computer system.  Without this information, (salon owner’s name) would not be able to pay me.”

    2. Another type of report is if you have to achieve a sales/service goal for a period of time that determines the amount you are paid.  

      1. “In order to make more than minimum wage for the hours worked during the pay period, I would have to achieve a sales/service goal set by (salon owner’s name).  I would have to log each and every service I rendered and/or retail sales I made in the salon’s centralized computer system.  Without providing these reports, (salon owner’s name) would not be able to pay me.”

    3. An example that you can provide the IRS would be a report from the salon owner of the services you completed for a period of time.  Sometimes a paycheck stub can be used as an example if it lists your total sales/service amounts.  If you do not have examples to attach, explain the report in as much detail as possible.

  6.  Describe the worker’s daily routine such as his or her schedule or hours.

    1. If you are required to follow a schedule set or approved by the salon owner you will need to mention that in the space provided.  Here are some other things to mention:

      1. Were you required to be at the salon a certain amount of time before it opened or your first client?

      2. Were you required to answer phones, clean, or fold towels when not with a client?

      3. What type of opening or closing procedures did you have to follow?

  7.  At what location(s) does the worker perform services (for example, the firm’s premises, own shop or office, home, customer’s location)? Indicate the appropriate percentage of time the worker spends in each location, if more than one.

    1. Most likely you are going to answer with “firm’s premises,” but if you go off-site to provide services, for instance, a client’s home or a wedding venue, you will also put “customer’s location.”

  8. Describe any meetings the worker is required to attend and any penalties for not attending (for example, sales meetings, monthly meetings, staff meetings).

    1. If you were required to attend mandatory meetings mention them in the space provided.  Don’t forget to include copies of any correspondence between you and the salon (owner or manager) regarding your attendance.

    2. “Required to attend mandatory monthly meetings.  If unable to attend, I would receive a ‘written warning.’”

  9.  Is the worker required to provide the services personally? (Yes) (No)

    1. Required to provide service personally essentially means that the salon owner is concerned about who performs such services versus being concerned that the services are performed in general.

      1. If you are unable to make it into the salon for whatever reason, and you are able to call in another licensed professional to substitute for you and complete the client’s services, you are not required to provide services personally and you will mark “No.”

      2. If you are not allowed to call in another licensed professional to take care of your clients for that day, and/or the salon contacts your clients to reschedule them, you are required to provide services personally and you will mark “Yes.”

  10.  If substitutes or helpers are needed, who hires them?

    1. If you are allowed to hire, train, pay, and fire your own employees (assistants) then you will put “your name” in the space.  

    2. If you are not allowed to hire your own employees or get permission in order to hire an employee, you will put the “salon owner’s name.”  

    3. You will also put the “salon owner’s name” if you are required to utilize or pay for the salon’s assistants.

  11.  If the worker hires the substitutes or helpers, is approval required? (Yes) (No)

    1. If you are not allowed to hire substitutes or helpers (assistants) or you must first obtain the salon owner’s permission you will choose “Yes.”  

    2. If you have complete control over interviewing, hiring, training, paying & firing of a substitute or assistant, you will choose “No.”

    3. If “Yes,” by whom?

      1. Whom do you have to get permission from?  Probably the salon owner or member of salon management, enter “their name” in the space provided.

  12.  Who pays the substitutes or helpers?

    1. If you are the one who is paying substitutes and/or assistants, you will fill in “your name.” 

    2.  If the salon owner is the person who makes the payments, you will enter the “salon owner’s name.”  

    3. If you are not allowed to partake in the hiring process of salon employees you will also enter the “salon owner’s name.”

  13.  Is the worker reimbursed if the worker pays the substitutes or helpers? (Yes) (No)

    1. If you are the one who initially pays the substitute and/or assistant, and then the salon owner issues your payment to reimburse the expense, you will mark “Yes.”   

    2. If you are not reimbursed by the salon mark “No.”

    3. If you do not utilize substitutes or assistants write-in “N/A.

    4. If “Yes,” by whom?

      1. Most likely the “salon owner’s name” if applicable.

        3. If the salon owner would not reimburse you for any expenses write “N/A.”

    2. Other party:
