The Prime recruiter has repeatedly turned down my documentation of Form C and SE and 1099 even as transcripts for the IRS. She says they can ONLY accept three years of W2. I do not have any W2s - period. zip, nada, zilch. None. How can I get past this hurdle and go to orientation?

I'm 60 years old. Own my home (no mortgage), own my cars(no payments). I take care of my property and my rental and turn in my tax information at the end of the year by submitting Schedule C and SE, also did some independent contractor work last year and got a 1099, but no W2 (no employer).

The tone from the recruiter sounds like she is going to deny my application because of it.

Hopefully someone will know the answer. Thanks for answering.

BMI:

Body mass index (BMI)

BMI is a formula that uses weight and height to estimate body fat. For most people, BMI provides a reasonable estimate of body fat. The BMI's biggest weakness is that it doesn't consider individual factors such as bone or muscle mass. BMI may:

  • Underestimate body fat for older adults or other people with low muscle mass
  • Overestimate body fat for people who are very muscular and physically fit

It's quite common, especially for men, to fall into the "overweight" category if you happen to be stronger than average. If you're pretty strong but in good shape then pay no attention.

Is it possible your recruiter doesn't know self employed people don't have W2s? Can you ask to talk to her supervisor?

This is the explanation sent to the recruiter: "The following is an excerpt from Intuit Turbo Tax website:

Self employed people are responsible for paying the same federal taxes as everyone else. The difference is that they don’t have an employer to withhold money from their paycheck and send it to the IRS – or to share the burden of paying Social Security and Medicare taxes. Self employed people must keep track of their own income, estimate how much tax they owe, and in most cases, makes estimated tax payments throughout the year.

When you work for someone else, you get a W-2 form from your employer at the end of the year telling you exactly how much money you made.

When you’re self-employed, you have to figure that out yourself. That means you must keep accurate records of how much money you earn for the work you do how much you spend to operate your business. This record keeping is solely your responsibility. At tax time use Schedules C and SE to report your income. Working as an independent contractor, you can expect to receive 1099 form from your clients."

Here is the reply: "THIS IS THE ONLY THING THAT I CAN ACCEPT. IRS Transcript Wage & Income for the years you were self-employed (this is required) NOT TAX RETURN TRANSCRIPT these don’t have the company name on them."

You need a new recruiter, one who does not work for Intuit. But her quote, paragraph 2 states for self employed:

This record keeping is solely your responsibility. At tax time use Schedules C and SE to report your income

So your SE + C schedules are you're W2.

If Prime is one of those companies that accept casual statements for employment verification they should also accept copies of official IRS forms.

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

She's asking for this:

Wage and Income Transcript - shows data from information returns reported to the IRS, such as W-2s, 1099s and 1098s. Current tax year information may not be complete until July.

Yes. Went personally to local IRS office and obtained these very transcripts. Then Faxed to the recruiter. Her reply is that these are not W2 and therefore unacceptable.

Sounds like supervisor time. W2s don't exist for your situation.

Get a new recruiter, Speak with her boss. She is a moron. That is the same as a W-2. They are all forms proving your income.

Sorry my bad. 1098s is a mortgage interest statement. You wouldn't have one because you own your home. Why would you need that?
