Our board members are all paid as employees with taxes deducted.  As I
recall from the last time this issue circulated here, it was pretty much the
consensus that Board members should be handled like employees.

Can you give me an idea of how many towns have board members on as employees
and have taxes/SS taken directly out of stipends or how many just issue
1099s.  Is there a correct way or will either do?


As usual, thanks for the information!
