w2 vs corp-to-corp - newbie questions
(sorry for the double-post - I posted this at the end of the "Consultants: W-2, 1099 or Corp-to-Corp?" thread)
I am new to the US (NYC) and don't understand the tax laws well. I have a green card.
I have been offered a contract through a recruitment agency. They have offered $58 per hour W2 or $60 corp-to-corp.
The duration of the contract is 6-12 months. I am single, no dependents, renting an apartment.
The recruitment agency says I can get their benefits after 90 days - medical @ $400-500 per month and 401K (no matching). I am not sure whether I will take these benefits (i.e. maybe I can get better medical elsewhere)
Is it worth incorporating? I am not sure whether I will have enough deductible expenses to justify the headache.
