I was hired as a contract employee over a year ago. I never really was a contract employee as I worked only at that office and was there over a year and was just a normal employee. Taxes were not deducted or anything. I assumed that when tax season came around I would be able to file like any normal college student, pay for SS and Medicare on like the 2% of whatever it is. Boy was I wrong. I owed $2,200. I approached my bosses this past week about moving me to an employee status and having taxes deducted and they refused. I get a text message today informing me they are letting me go as they feel they can't satisfy my requirement to have taxes deducted. First of all I lost so much money being a contract employee and secondly they fire me out of the blue. Not a good start to my weekend to say the least.
