Frequently Asked Questions

What if I have W-2 employees?

It’s a good idea to manage your contractor workforce and employee workforce separately to keep the lines clear for the IRS. Plus traditional payroll systems handle contractor payments as an “Oh yeah, we can do those too." Those systems aren’t designed with your independent contractors in mind. Gig Wage is. We’ll happily recommend someone to handle your W-2 employees.

Do you create and send 1099s?

Yes. When a contractor signs up with Gig Wage, we collect their W-9 data. At the end of the year, you have the option of using Gig Wage to file your 1099s with the IRS and issue 1099s to your contractors. 

Each 1099 has a $5 fee which covers: 

• E-filing tax information return to Internal Revenue Service
• Physical delivery via U.S. mail of tax information return to recipient (if the recipient has not consented to electronic delivery)
• PDF generation of tax information return

Is Gig Wage Secure?

Yes. Gig Wage and its contractor payments software provides banking transactions that are both secure and compliant. Our team has decades of experience in building, designing and managing secure systems for organizations like ADP, PayCycle, Intuit, First Data, and more. Gig Wage is built with these same standards using bank-grade encryption when your data is transmitted and stored.

When do my contractors get paid?

Once payment is initiated, it will take 2 business days for funds to be available in your contractors' bank accounts.
