Creating a business with programmers who are "independent contractors" (not employees, per the IRS).
My task or inquiry is to find a way to have my little programming business and to see if it is legally possible to have programmers who are independent contractors, (not employees),
who perform their labor on my computer system that would be a VPS on the internet that is paid for by my company.
The reason that I am asking this question is because the laws say that a company that provides the capital resources of a project is by definition hiring employees not independent contractors, but then the use of an internet VPS raises the question if such an arrangement is legally correct to label the employees as "independent contractors" since it is in a "grey" area of the law that pertains to the software business.
Somebody please explain to me what my best plan of action with regards to this is. I am trying to produce the software at an economical price without short changing any substantial requirement of the law.
