I would be looking for new accountant as well, they are giving bad advice based on all the accountings I've dealt with in the past.
Changes of having those shooting for you regarded by the IRS as independent contractors is pretty slim since they wouldn't fall under the normal guidelines they use. Thus, you could find yourself in a position a year or so down the road being liable for back wages, workers compensation insurance, back taxes, and all the penalties and fines that go with it. It's happened over and over again to small business and photographers. Learn from there mistakes.
Who is going to handle the money, track and pay the commissions, collect, file, and pay the sales taxes on those sales? Who is responsible for the liability insurance, and you MUST have this if you don't want to be held personally liable for yours, or their mistakes.
What about workers compensation insurance for the sub-contracts or IC's. You need that as well by law. Either you, or they, need to have coverage. If they don't, you will be held responsible.
And who will be responsible should the IRS decide your IC arrangement is an attempt to avoid following the labor laws, and where will the money come from to cover back wages? Someone will be responsible, and it could be you.
If you don't have some sort of a partnership or business structure, it could all fall on your shoulders. It would suck to make $30K as a whole, only to later personally have to shell out $53K in back wages, tax penalties, fines, and legal fees. It's not worth it in the end to do take shortcuts, the risk is too high.
IMO, you would be better off doing your own thing, let them do theirs, and working some sort of a referral or commission arrangement were you get paid for referrals or lead generation. At least you would be a self contained business, and not responsible or legally required to deal with all the issues of hiring employees or independent contractors, and won't be held accountable for actions by anyone either than yourself.
