I have some terminology and definitions:
Independent Consultant - Someone who owns their own business and payments they recieve are recorded as an expense on the clients books.
Employee - Someone who works for a company and receives a W2 at the end of the year.
I've been seeing people who work as a temp employee and get a W2 refer to themselves as independent consultant. They are any employee not an independent consultant.
I'm an actual independent consultant and am wondering if I need to change my terminology. Has the true independent consultant taken on a new title?
