Payroll/Accounting For Occasional Employees

We are a small art gallery.  In a few weeks, we will be hiring someone to gallery "sit" for the weekend while we are away.  This person will work for two days, 8 hours per day and be paid an hourly rate.  We might use the same person again several months later or we might use someone else.  Is this person a part-time employee or an occasional employee?  Do I need to do W4/withholding or can I issue a 1099 at the end of the year.  I don't think this person would ever work more than 10 days in a year.  Thanks.

Hello there, @BillM

 

I appreciate you for sharing detailed information about your concern. It seems that this person who will work for you for 2 days isn't formally employed in your company. Thus, he/she is considered as an occasional or 1099 employee. Hence, you'll need to issue 1099 form at the end of the year.

 

Check out IRS.gov for more information. You can also read through our help article: Common questions about 1099s. It'll help you learn everything about this form to get you started. 

 

Don't hesitate to post again if you need assistance with anything else. We're always glad to be of your service.  Have a blissful weekend.
