The gigs listed on this page are just that...gigs. You earn small amounts of change or points for performing certain tasks. Unlike work-at-home jobs, these tasks companies don't pay by the hour, nor do they offer benefits to their workers. While a worker, you are not considered an employee. You are considered to be either a contract worker, or an independent contractor. While many may be use to taxes being taken out of every check they receive, as an independent contractor you are responsible for your taxes. After you make over $600 in a year, you are then required to complete a 1099 tax form. On a positive note, most of the task companies listed will pay you via Paypal. Some companies have low to no minimum cash out with immediate pay (trust me it's awesome).
These companies are used just2supplement your income.
