Employee vs. independent contractor

QuickBooks defines an employee as someone you give a W-2 to at the end of the year. You pay them with paychecks and withhold taxes for them.

QuickBooks defines an independent contractor as someone you give a 1099-MISC to. You pay them with regular checks, and you do not withhold taxes on their behalf.
