W-2 or IC for this Orthodontist?


I was initially offered a full time job at this big office as an employee
orthodontist. Paid on collection. However I was told by my financial advisor to
ask to independent contractor and even though they did not prefer that but they
did offer higher % on collection and I will be responsible for ALL consumable

My question is: should I accept the job as an employee or independent
contractor in this case?

really depends on you and your particular situation – maybe yes, maybe no.

What are the benefits as an IC for me over employee options?

Should I form a S-Corp?

Since your “financial advisor” advised you to ask to be an IC,
didn’t they go over these issues with you? What were their reasons for advising
you to be an IC and what did they say you stood to gain by doing so and what
were the disadvantages? Hopefully they covered all of these issues with you as
part of their advice. They know more about you and the situation than we
do and are in a better position to answer these questions.

Thank you very much. 

Didn’t the advice
come with some sort of analysis showing you why the suggestion of being an IC
would be more beneficial than employee?
