Secrets of Independent Contractors

Its finally here! Secrets of Independent Contractors is available now!

Secrets of Independent Contractors – Both workers and business owners can reduce the taxes that they pay by using this extremely simple tax strategy. It not only gives people more control over their money, but lets them keep more of it. Even the Wall Street Journal has outlined how someone who is an independent contractor can earn $150,000 of income in a year and owe $0 in income taxes by taking only a handful of commonplace deductions and credits. Plus, business owners can reduce the risk of litigation, increase worker productivity, and reduce overall labor costs, at the same time. It is a win-win for both sides of the coin, workers and businesses. It can also be the critical foundation for being able to use State Income Optimization, an even more powerful and more profitable tax strategy.

Clever. Give us a taste and leave us with a cliff hanger. It sounds great, but I’m nervous about the cost. Being unemployed, any cost is going to hurt. Anyway, I’m looking forward to what is to come.

@D –
The trick is to form an LLC in New Mexico. They do not require specific info about the owners or the way it’s set up. Just name of company and name of “agent.” An agent is often someone who is hired as an legal representative and can be anyone you name or hire that you trust. No other info is needed. I LOVE THEM!! [google NM LLCs for more info]

Hi Bill,

I wanted to order it for the $5 special price but when you click the link,
it charges the full price of $10 in the window. It asks for a coupon
code but there is no coupon code in my email or here on this page.

Thought you would want to know.

4 joe April 1, 2011 at 4:16 pm

Uh, just saw the code at the very top of the page.
My mistake.

5 Bill Rounds J.D. April 1, 2011 at 4:25 pm

Glad you found it. I tried to make it prominent but even a careful observer can miss it sometimes. If anyone couldn’t find the discount code before they ordered, assuming you order before 4/9/11, send us an email and we will get it corrected for you.

Don’t bother to e-mail me because it’s fictitious.So is the name I am using.So is my IP address and my billing address for it.

I wanted to let Counsel know I have been tweeting his “How to Vanish” hints on Twitter in the hopes it brings him new business. I am an out of work Paralegal (Hey, we have the WORST Tort Reform Laws in the U.S.) so I have a lot of sympathy with a good criminal defense attorney.

Counsel might like to check out my friend Barry Cooper’s “Never Get Busted Again” website & videos.

Thanks Thea! Well done on the anonymity by the way.

Hi Bill. Two questions. It’s been over a year since the last comment on here. The content of the ebook sounds enticing, however I am wondering how much of it is still relevant on the cusp of 2013 (Nov 26, 2012)? Also, does it address at all the IRS crackdown on “1099 MISCLAIMING” initiative known as the “2010 IRS Employment Tax National Research Project”? What I have learned about the latter is that it will change the game as far as making criteria for claiming 1099 stricter for all parties, and also involves significant penaliies for all parties including CLIENT, AGENCY, & Contractors.


9 Trace Mayer, J.D. November 28, 2012 at 8:44 pm


No, it does not directly address the 2010 IRS Employment Tax National Research Project you mentioned but instead goes directly to the law and explains it with various examples. There are elements and factors which, if understood clearly by the parties involved, should provide plenty of guidance on how to properly classify based on the facts of each situation. The guide is an objective analysis. After knowing the relevant laws then decisions can be made that will result in either independent contractor or employee status to result.

How come you promote anonymity, yet, you only accept credit cards for your book? Why not let me mail in the money, and then you mail me the book? Shipping and handling is not a problem unless it’s more than the book itself.

I would like to remain anonymous–even with you. Maybe you are making a point with the whole credit card/vanishing oxymoron; but the whole point is to get off the grid and out of sight of people who may take advantage of the public and subsequently manipulate them. Let me know if a money order purchase is likely.

John, As we detailed in this article, we think being able to order products online while maintaining privacy is extremely important. The books are available in the CoinDL store.

Due to the inconvenience to the customers we do not accept cash, checks, money orders, etc. We have found that due to travel schedules, communication, etc. that it is just too difficult to do so in a timely and cost efficient manner that provides a good customer experience. Particularly since they can be purchased via Bitcoin and instantly downloaded.
