Does Virtual PM Solutions screen the proposals I receive?
We strive to ensure that Virtual PM Solutions is a completely fair and reliable marketplace. To that end, we verify that the remote team members in the platform are who they say they are using email and identity verification. You can also access the following to authenticate each candidate's identity and skill level:
- Authenticating email addresses
- ID and video verification
- Job scores and feedback from previous clients
- Online skills test results.
We facilitate making connections between companies and team members, but we don't want to limit your ability to find the right hire. Only you can truly be sure that the skills and experience of a candidate meet your needs. Employers have the option to add custom screening questions to your job post to ensure that the right candidates find your project.

Do I get official invoices through VPM?
Yes, all payments include official invoices available to print or download at any time.
Am I responsible for filing tax forms?
As a general rule of thumb, employers who hire virtual team members through VPM shouldn't be responsible for filing 1099-MISC forms for their team members. This is one of the key benefits of paying virtual team members through our platform.
Through the VPM platform, you will find independent contractors. As long as they are properly classified as such, you shouldn't be responsible for reporting payments on Form 1099-MISC. This is made possible by the fact that our escrow service, through which payments are made, is considered a “third-party payment network.” As a result, Form 1099 reporting is our responsibility—not yours.
When applicable, we are required to report payments to independent contractors on Form 1099-K. That frees you from any responsibility to report on Form 1099-MISC, and we do not send Form 1099-MISC on behalf of our clients. We also require all persons who find work through our platform in the U.S. to submit Form W-9 to us.
That being said, it is your responsibility to correctly classify those who do work for you through Virtual PM Solutions as independent contractors, not as employees. Determining the proper classification of all of your remote team members is up to you, and you should refer to the IRS guidelines and other federal, state, and local regulations applicable to you for freelancers based in the United States.
If you have questions or concerns about any tax-related issues pertaining to hiring remote workers through our platform, we recommend consulting your tax professional.
