I am a contractor who was forced to file a W-9 for a TIN. What happens if i don't pay my taxes for one year?

I am assuming the company I am working for will submit my W-9 and inform the IRS of my wages. Is that so? If they do not submit my wages to the IRS would the IRS expect me to file and pay income tax every year even if I earned no wages or was unemployed? I am receiving direct deposit of my wages from the company I am working for currently. Would there be any proof of these wages provided to the IRS from the company I am contracting with? I have just started this contractor job in 2007 and was an employee with a W-2 until Nov of 2006. I am hearing conflicting information of persons who do not file, and those who do. This is not a moral issue I am interested on the legal and financial outcomes if I chose to not pay quarterly estimated taxes for 2007.

They probably will report the income to the IRS and they should. If they ever got audited and didn't report YOUR income, they would be in trouble. WHEN you get a 1099-MISC, you better report the income, and the expenses that were incurred to decrease that income. You will also have self-employment tax (15.3% of the... More
