Hi my name is Mark. I will be happy to help you with your questions.
Your boyfriend is filing his taxes for 2015?
So this is income he did not report on the return in April? Did he receive a 1099? A notice from the IRS?
There is a backup withholding? Can you please give me a little more of the background information and I will be better able to help you.
So it was just catering jobs that he had? He would need to amend the tax return and report the income on Schedule C. He would be able to deduct any expenses associated with this income. The net income from this would be subject to both self employment taxes and income taxes. Do you know how much income your boyfriend reported on the original return?
