More details to this question:
my question is.now that i have become injured and can no longer work they have given me disability insurance. the amount was determined by what the employer had paid into my ssi acount based on my pay. but since i had been mistakenly classified as a private contractor my employer had never paid any money into it. i have looked into this private contractor thing and it looks to me that because my employer decided to make us all private contractors. he also assumed the responsibility to make sure that it was legal. from what i have read he is also responsible for taxes not collected and everything else caused by a wrongfull determination of private contractor. if this is so then i would be entitled to much more on my disability i think there is a big bunch of money owed to the state by these companies using this as a tax dodge.read the law it says the employer will be responsible for any taxes not collected no matter what... i have ran out of room here so i will stop

If you want to pursue this, you must not sit back as everything has a statute of limitations, and you don't want yours to run out.  Contact an employment lawyer to discuss pursuing your former employer for taxes not paid. If the taxes do get paid, then you will be entitled to a new determination of your monthly benefit. One other thing ... if the employer didn't pay the tax, neither did you.  When the employer does, you may have a balance due for taxes.  This is an area of law that I am not an expert, but a question in which you need a lawyer's help.
