Q: I COMPLETED A JOB, WHEN DO I GET PAID?
A: Please view our policies page: http://www.steelagency.com/policies.htm
Below are the steps of how the payment process works:
1. Talent "successfully" completes a job
2. Talent Faxes and/or mails in all required paperwork within 24 - 48 hours depending on job (Signed Timesheets, Report Forms, Surveys, Telephone Reporting, etc.)
3. Once STEEL Agency receives paperwork, client is invoiced (usually the day after promotion or event ends.
4. Client sends payment to STEEL Agency
5. Talent check is mailed
6. Whole payment process "APPROXIMATELY" takes 6 - 8 weeks. However, if client pays sooner, talent check will be mailed sooner. (Some clients may take a little longer to pay and may take up to 12 weeks, however we do our best to pay you as soon as possible.)


Q: DO YOU TAKE TAXES OUT OF MY CHECK?
A: No. You are an Independent Contractor; therefore, we do not take taxes out of your check. At the end of the fiscal year, if you have made $600.00 USD or more with STEEL Agency, we will mail you a 1099 tax form. All talent are required to submit the 1099 by law for tax purposes.
