What does the passage of the new tax law mean for a gig economy increasingly characterized by a professional independent workforce?

A new provision allows sole proprietors, partnerships, and other pass-through entities to deduct 20 percent of their revenue from taxable income. Designed as a mechanism to fuel small business growth, some argue it’s little more than a tax shelter for wealthy individuals.

While the full impact remains to be seen, what is clear is that the provision incentivizes independent contracting as an alternative to traditional employment. But what does that mean for the workers seeking to capitalize on these tax savings? And how should employers prepare to acquire, classify, and manage talent under the new rules?

Neal Bhamre, Senior Vice President at TalentWave, explores the consequences of the new tax rules—both expected and unintended—on the independent workforce ecosystem.
