For employers who have classified workers as contractors  (and properly done 1099 forms for them)--- who believe these  workers would probably be classified as employees if they were audited by IRS, this program offers voluntary relief. 

The IRS program which offers an amnesty for 10% of the tax that  would have been paid.
