1099 vs W2, does your small business have employees or contractors?
During the life of most small businesses, every owner might need help producing the deliverables and enlist persons outside their immediate family for help. Now the decision of how the helpers will be paid must be made.
Should I pay this person as a 1099 contactor or W2 employee?
Should they be paid as an independent contractor or withhold taxes from their compensation as an employee? The biggest determining factors should not be what are easiest for the owner but rather what are correct in the eyes of the Internal Revenue Service.
In the past decade, the IRS has developed guidelines and common law rules to help small business owners make the right choice between independent contractor and employee. The decision should be well thought out and well documented in case of possible disputes later from either the helpers or the IRS. The trend has been for the IRS to view all helpers under the direct control of a business owner as their employees not as contractors. This view allows for an easier method of tax collections direct from a single business owner rather than chasing down several independent contractors.
So, be careful with your choice, if the helpers you paid as 1099 contractors are determined later by the IRS as W2 employees then the Trust Fund recovery penalty which is federal income tax, social security and Medicare taxes not withheld will be assessed to the owner.
Below are excerpts direct from the irs.gov web site and might help you make the correct choice.
The general rule is that an individual is an 1099 contractor if you, the person for whom the services are performed, have the right to control or direct only the result of the work and not the means and methods of accomplishing the result.
Example:) Vera Elm, an electrician, submitted a job estimate to a housing complex for electrical work at $16 per hour for 400 hours. She is to receive $1,280 every 2 weeks for the next 10 weeks. This is not considered payment by the hour. Even if she works more or less than 400 hours to complete the work, Vera Elm will receive $6,400. She also performs additional electrical installations under contracts with other companies that she obtained through advertisements. Vera is an independent contractor.
Facts that provide evidence of the degree of control and independence fall into three categories:
Behavioral: Does the company control or have the right to control what the worker does and how the worker does his or her job?
Financial: Are the business aspects of the workerвЂ™s job controlled by the payer? (these include things like how worker is paid, whether expenses are reimbursed, who provides tools/supplies, etc.)
Type of Relationship: Are there written contracts or employee type benefits (i.e. pension plan, insurance, vacation pay, etc.)? Will the relationship continue and is the work performed a key aspect of the business?
Businesses must weigh all these factors when determining whether a worker is an employee or independent contractor. Some factors may indicate that the worker is an employee, while other factors indicate that the worker is an independent contractor. There is no вЂњmagicвЂќ or set number of factors that вЂњmakesвЂќ the worker an employee or an independent contractor, and no one factor stands alone in making this determination. Also, factors which are relevant in one situation may not be relevant in another.
The keys are to look at the entire relationship, consider the degree or extent of the right to direct and control, and finally, to document each of the factors used in coming up with the determination.
Finally, remember to ask a Certified Public Accountant or tax professional before making a final decision because as the owner the ultimate liability always falls directly on you.

W-2 / Forms Filer - The Base Program
The W-2/1099 Forms Filer is considered the base program and is required to use any other module of the 1099-ETC software, including  AMS Payroll and E-File Direct . It is a complete database system that generates all 1099, W-2, and related forms. The W-2/1099 Forms Filer has an easy-to-use, menu-driven, format that simplifies the selection of payers and forms.
Software Generated Forms Module
By adding Software Generated Forms, you can print most forms on plain white paper. No need to buy pre-printed forms.
The only forms you will need to purchase are 1099 Copy A forms and 1096 forms and any other forms that are not accepted as laser generated.
You can even print the W-2, W-2C, W-3C Copy A forms, as well as 941, 940, and many other forms that the software supports, on blank paper.
AMS Payroll Module
AMS Payroll is an add on module to the W-2/1099 Forms Filer. This allows payroll and non employee compensation and certain other 1099 information to be entered by check throughout the year. The program supports either "Live9quot; or After-The-Fact Payroll. You can transfer this data to the state/federal quarterly unemployment forms along with the year end W-2s and 1099s.
Why not reduce or eliminate the cost of expensive 1099 and W-2 forms? Consider the time, savings and convenience of not having to load special forms into your printer. Eliminate the expense of ordering too many forms or the inconvenience of running out.
Our Electronic Filing options make your 1099 and W-2 processing fast, efficient, and less expensive.
There are two ways to E-File using 1099-Etc:
E-File Direct is a powerful program that produces the required files for filing 1099 and W-2 forms with the IRS and SSA. E-File Direct creates a file in the IRS/SSA required formats for electronic filing, which is then transmitted via the internet (using the IRS "FIRE9quot; system or the SSA "BSO9quot;/9quot;ACCUWAGE9quot; system).
E-File Services allows the user to electronically file their W-2s and 1099s via a third-party vendor. AMS is working with a specialist third-party provider who has built a state-of-the-art solution with which 1099-Etc is integrated. There are different levels of E-File Services available. Each is designed to allow the user the ability to customize their E-File Services for their own unique time and budget requirements.
E-File Services charges are based on volume pricing. [Credit Card required at the time of submission ] [W-2/1099 Forms Filer Required]
Forms Filer Plus Module
Forms Filer Plus allows you to prepare additional payroll related forms for the various states and the federal government.
Forms Filer Plus supports many Federal forms, including the 940, 941, 944, 945, 941-X, W-4, I-9 and W-9 plus forms for all 50 states, including the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.
Unlike AMS Payroll, Forms Filer Plus is a basic forms filler.  You enter your data directly onto an easy to read facsimile of the form on the screen, and then you are ready to print.
You can use Forms Filer Plus when you simply want to prepare a state unemployment form on the screen without setting up an employer and employees in AMS Payroll.
Affordable Care Act Filer
Employers are expected to be compliant with the Affordable Care Act (ACA) filing regulations and reporting requirements. In general terms, if you have 50 or more full-time employees or are a 'self-insured9apos; employer, then you are required to comply with these ACA filing requirements.
The Affordable Care Act Filer for our W2/1099 filing software, 1099-Etc, supports Affordable Care Act (ACA) reporting for 2016 and will automatically fill in Form 1095-B, Form 1095-C, and the associated 1094 transmittal forms for printing on pre-printed forms or blank paper (Software Generated Forms required) for you to mail. Electronic filing of the ACA Form 1095-B and Form 1095-C is also included. You will also be able to print and distribute the ACA filing forms directly to your recipients.
Let Advanced Micro Solutions’ ACA Filer for the W2/1099 filing software, 1099-Etc, help you save time and money by providing you with the tools to meet your ACA reporting needs and have the best chance of getting things done right the first time.

The 1099-Etc system from Advanced Micro Solutions is a suite of modules designed for after-the-fact payroll, laser forms generation and electronic filing, with the core of the program providing W-2 and 1099 year-end compliance capabilities. The network-ready system is designed for managing multiple employers with any number of recipients. With the addition of the payroll module, it also handles quarterly and annual payroll and unemployment reporting, including the ability to electronically file and pay liabilities, offer direct deposit and print MICR checks.
Basic System Functions
The core 1099-Etc program opens into a small window that offers access to the various modules, as well as for setting system defaults, printing preferences, user security and data backup options. Each of the modules operates separately, but users can easily copy basic information between them, such as when adding an employer to the payroll module that already exists in the 1099 system.
The program’s client selection screen provides little more than the limited Windows Explorer file structure but with the ability to search by name or first letter of a company name. Companies and recipients can be set as defaults or users can copy payer information to a new entity. The core W-2/1099 system does not offer employee/recipient selection screens. Instead, when working within a module and within a specific client’s files, the user selects the form (with all forms divided by family), which then opens up the newest/last form of that specific type (1099-MISC, W-2, etc). The software offers the ability to search a specific form type for a recipient’s TIN, name or a user-specified value or simply scroll between forms. An employee selection screen is available in the A-T-F Payroll module. Data entry takes place on exact replicas of the forms, and there are options for importing data from spreadsheets and text files.
The 1099-Etc system allows multiple users to work within the program simultaneously, and can be used to manage up to 1,999 payer entities, with up to 9,999 form recipients each. The system is sold to professionals and businesses, with multi-entity management capabilities available to any user and no accountant-specific or wholesale offering. The after-the-fact payroll module offers tax tables for all states and New York City, along with special exemptions and exclusions. It includes all state and federal wage and hire reports with an SSN verification file.
Additional payroll features include live processing capabilities with the option for Direct Deposit and MICR check printing. Any number of standard and custom deductions can be assigned to employee pay, and each can have up to nine pay rates. It also supports employees with multiple state income reporting. In addition to mass import, the system has a spreadsheet view manual entry format for entering data across multiple recipients simultaneously. Annual program updates are generally available by mid-December. 4.75
1099-Etc offers a large collection of managerial report options, including payroll-focused output such as certified payroll reports, tax summaries, period details, withholding balances, details and check registers. Dozens more can be tailored to include specific information, but they have basic built-in formatting and customization options and can only be saved to PDF format or be directly printed. Managerial reporting can be run in batch across multiple payer entities at the same time. Other output options include client letters, recipient lists and mailing labels, but no option for printing to self-sealing envelopes.
The system’s compliance reporting functions include the entire 1099 family, plus 1098, 5498, W-2 and W-3 with correction forms, 1042-S, and Puerto Rico forms. Payroll compliance reporting includes forms 940, 941, 942-worksheet, 943 and 944, depending upon employer setup and type of entity. These forms are automatically populated and calculated with data from recipient forms. Electronic filing of 1099 and W-2 forms to federal and states is offered as an add-on. The company also provides outsourced e-filing services that can manage any or all of the processes involved in e-filing to federal and state entities, recipient mailing and payer file copies. Reports and forms can be printed to plain paper. No online portals are offered, although the system can produce PDF formats of recipient returns for storage and distribution. A basic billing management system is included. 4.25
Prior-year data from the system can be automatically synched into new version updates during setup, and payer and recipient information can also be imported from QuickBooks, Peachtree, Excel spreadsheets, and other payroll and wage reporting applications. The primary modules for payroll and year-end W-2/1099 reporting also share data. As previously noted, no portals or direct integration with document management systems is offered, although the program does provide output to PDF format for digital storage. Data can be exported into Excel, text or PDF. 4.75
1099-Etc supports Windows 2000 through Windows 7, including Vista. An index-based Help utility is built in, along with a PDF version of the program’s user manual. Program updates can be downloaded from the company’s website or the system can be set to automatically check for updates. The support website also offers a knowledgebase and FAQs section, along with contact information. Live technical support and all updates for each reporting year are included in pricing. 4.5
1099-Etc has a strong base engine for managing year-end compliance needs. The company also offers a great optional after-the-fact payroll module that includes compliance capabilities for all federal and state quarterly and annual reporting. Options for direct deposit, e-filing and electronic payment of remittances is also included. The core 1099-Etc Forms Filer system costs for a networkable version that can be used by any number of users. The Laser Generation module is probably an essential, and costs an additional . The After-the-Fact Payroll system is 5, and the electronic filing add-on is also 5. In lieu of standard electronic filing, the third-party E-filing Services is .29 per 1099/W-2 filed. A separate forms library package is available for . An all-inclusive package would cost 5 per year.

The W-2/1099 Forms Filer is considered the base program and is required to use any other option of the 1099-Etc software, including the Payroll and E-Filer options. It is a complete database system that generates all 1099, W-2, and related forms. The 1099/W-2 Forms Filer has an easy-to-use, menu-driven, format that simplifies the selection of payers and forms.
Easy Data Entry
It’s easy to get your data onto the forms with 1099-Etc. Simply choose the form you wish to work with and fill in the blanks with your information. The 1099-Etc software will calculate your totals for you, check the fields to maintain valid information and warn you of possible problems. If you find that you have common data, such as a city or state that all employee’s share, enter it in the default template and it will appear automatically on all forms, saving you from typing it over and over. When you are finished with the current form, click next and the 1099-Etc software will save the form automatically and load a new blank form with your default information and payer information pre filled in, ready for your data.
The 1099-Etc software doesn't limit you to working with only one Payer (or company), but instead, allows you the flexibility of up to 999 Payers! And adding new Payers is easy! You simply click on the Add New Payer Button and type in a directory name. Once the Payer is created then you need only enter Payer information on the first form that you prepare for that Payer. After that, the payer information will automatically appear on every subsequent form you prepare for that Payer. This will really cut down on your repetitive data entry, which saves you money!
The W-2/1099 Forms Filer makes printing easy and versatile. You can print on pre-printed IRS approved forms, like the ones we sell right here at TaxCalcUSA. You can also generate the forms on blank paper if using our Laser Generated Option. The W-2/1099 Forms Menu will also print Client Letters, Recipient Lists, and standard one-inch mailing labels. If you work with a large number of Payers, the 1099-Etc software will batch print forms for as many of your Payers as you wish in one easy step. That really saves a lot of steps!
The W-2/1099 Forms Filer will produce a one-line summary report, a worksheet report, or hash totals of SSN’s and TIN’s that can be used as a reference or to verify data accuracy.

I use CentOS 6.5 and Jetty 9.1.0.v20131115 . I use Jetty's JMX capabilities.
I want to have JMX accessible only from within the running computer ( localhost , or 127.0.0.0/8 ), but not from outside (e.g. JMX shall not be accessible from public.example.com ).
Therefore, I configured Jetty's JMX RMI host to use jetty.jmxrmihost=localhost instead of a wildcard jetty.jmxrmihost=0.0.0.0 .
Yet still, my Jetty server instance is accessible from "outside", allowing anyone to connect to my Jetty server via JMX.
What do I have to configure to make Jetty listen to only those JMX connections which originate from localhost ?
Here are my Jetty configuration files that are relevant to this topic:
Just from the way the question is asked, it seems like it is less of a Jetty/JMX issue and more of a firewall issue - what you want is to block unwanted outside traffic to the JMX port on this server.
If you have permissions and are willing to do so, you will want to remove any rule from /etc/sysconfig/iptables that is opening the JMX port (in this example, 1099). Such a rule will look like the following:
Or, on the flip side, you may want to enable JMX monitoring only for a specific subnet (such as for a company's subnet), at which point, you'd want to add the following:
, replacing MY_IP_SUBNET_HERE and JMX_PORT with your own IP subnet and JMX port, respectively.
I haven't written a lot of rules for iptables myself, so please consider the above as an example and not necessarily the exact syntax you need. *nixCraft provides a basic guide to handling iptables/sysctl, which also covers how to modify rules without editing the file (I usually just modify the file).
Two notes, if you go the route of modifying the iptables file:
