Good morning, I'm Doug, and I'm sorry to hear of the confusion. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today. Under the social security system, if you are unable to perform your regular job duties and are out on temporary disability and receiving weekly benefits because of your work-related injury, you cannot work in another job---even a self employment job. However, if you are released to light duty or otherwise allowed by your physician to participate in your person, self employment business, you must report any income earned to your employer or their workers' compensation insurer. Failure to do so could result in civil or criminal penalties. If you are not actively participating in yourself employment business, but merely receiving passive income from that business---like you might from a rental unit that you don’t actively manage---then that income need not be reported. All income that you earn through active employment while receiving workers' compensation benefits must be reported though. The report should be made weekly, not annually. The income reported is your net income, after business expenses. Please keep in mind that, even though you have already paid your deposit money over to JustAnswer, until you rate me highly for my service, I will not be paid for having assisted you with your questions. If you have additional questions, you may of course reply back to me and I will be happy to continue to assist you further until your questions have been answered to your satisfaction. I wish you the best in your future. Doug
