I think this try.
Can I use the 1040z when I have $5909 income on a 1099s?
Sharon, there are many different types of 1099 documents, so it’s impossible for me to give an exact answer. If you mean Form 1099-MISC for non-employee compensation, then no; you’ll need to use the 1040 long form and attach a Schedule C. If the 1099 is for bank interest (1099-INT), then yes you can use the EZ form.
I am on F1 visa in Usa, I took check from company without any work permit from university, company told me that they don’t need any work permit for job as they will not put me on work permit, but they told me to sign and put SSN on W-9 form, So is it like that I am on their pay roll, will I be in trouble, If so how can i protect myself so that if I change my status from F1 to H1, I won’t be in trouble.
This is an immigration law question, and you should seek counsel from an immigration attorney or someone at your school well versed in F-1 visas. From a tax perspective, as long as you report your income and pay your tax, the IRS doesn’t care. From the USCIS web site, “You may be allowed to work on-campus or off-campus (after the completion of your first year of study) under limited circumstances. Please see the rules on student employment at 8 CFR 214.2 (f). You may also wish to discuss employment with the designated school official (DSO) at your school. Your accompanying spouse and child may not accept employment.” When I looked up 8 CFR 214.2(f), I found that employment is limited to on-campus or off-campus jobs that are directly related to the school’s educational program.
Thanks for your help William Perez.
I am kind of in the same situation of the person above. I am on a F1 visa, and last year I was an egg donor and received a $8K check. As it was a donation, I thought it was tax free. This year, I was informed by my school that I have to file an 8843 form for every year I have been a student in the States. At the same time, the donation agency sent me a W8 form.
I am in doubt now – in my situation, for the year I had wages, should I file the 8843 AND the 1040-EZ, or how should I proceed? Won’t it get into descrepancy against each other? thanks!
