If you earn 1099 income, technically you are considered self-employed. This can significantly change your tax situation. The IRS expects you to make quarterly estimated tax payments throughout the year.

Many contractors in Texas, including oilfield workers, are not aware of this requirement until it’s too late, resulting in significant taxes owed to the IRS. Scott has helped thousands of contractors correct their mistakes, remain in compliance moving forward, and resolving the past due taxes.
