I am doing consultant as my job side job. I am wondering if I should put tax in my invoice on top of my charges. This is the current state of the negotiation regarding taxes:
You will not be eligible for any employee benefits, nor will the Company make deductions from payments made to you for taxes. You acknowledge and agree that you are obligated to report as income all consideration that you receive under this Agreement, and you acknowledge and agree to pay all self-employment and other taxes thereon. You further agree to indemnify the Company and hold it harmless to the extent of any obligation imposed on the Company to pay withholding taxes or similar items or resulting from your being determined not to be a Consultant.
How can I negotiate to have my expenses paid for by the employer? Would it be possible to invoice the employer for any taxes incurred, to simply negotiate payment that will cover the additional taxation-related expenses, or for the employer to cover the contractor's expenses in the first place?
I live in California.
