An Independent Contractor (IC) Agreement is a written contract between two parties for a specific service or project. One person or company hires another to help or provide a service on a short term basis. This is NOT an employment agreement, as this contract specifically spells out that the IC being hired is not an employee for legal and tax purposes. IC are responsible for paying their own taxes and may deduct expenses related to the project (please consult a tax professional for more information).
