I do 1099 work myself but had to incorporate a while back for another gig. So, now I run 1099 directly to my company (LLC) which then has a payroll service handle my taxes. So it looks like this:

-- client pays me but writes check to my company (they don't do 1099, they have a business expense paid for services rendered)
-- I deposit said check into company's business bank acct
-- my company hires payroll company (I pay $25/mo to write me a paycheck, take out taxes (fed/state/local), delivers W2 each year and pays corporate quarterly taxes.
-- Payroll service sends me "paychecks"
-- I write myself a corporate "draw" to split my taxable paycheck income and my business owner income (less social security)

So, for $25/mo and the extra step of running it through my company I am protected legally and financially. The payroll service does all the tax nonsense I have no interest in keeping track of. I can also use my company to handle health/travel/business expenses differently than 1099.

Not saying going LLC/incorporated is the best way, but its an option that isn't that difficult to set up.
