Hello and thank you for using Just AnswerIt is not liiegal for a student on an F1 VISA to receive a 1099MISC. You will need to report the income on the 1040NR return with the Schedule C attached to show the Self Employment income. You will not need to pay Self Employment tax on the net earnings. Any amounts for expenses that you have a receipt for can be claimed against the income. I hope this information is helpful and thank you in advance for clicking ACCEPT
Thanks for the response. I have a quick follow-up question. Since I didnt know about the receipts, I have only receipts for a few expenses and not for total $1000. But I have incurred cost close or more to that amount. Can I still claim $1000 as expense ?
If you were audited by the IRS they would want to see receipts for the expenses claimed
If you coulc get copy of the expenses you turned in to the university that they used to reimburse you by that would be good
Please know you can always come back even after you click ACCEPT
Did you have another question
I thank you again and although you thanked me for my response you will need to actually CLICK on the ACCEPT if you are satisfied and complete on this subject. If you have another question on this specific subject then you can post that before you click ACCEPT.
Thanks. I would like to accept just after this last bit. As soon as you respond to this.
University didnt ask me to sumbit any receipts..
How did they know what to reimburse
they just asked me ..
and verified at the market level
standards for travel
it actually combination of travel expenses and phone bills etc
The IRS is not that trusting. You would ned to show a log for any travel that was directly related to the work and not just getting tot he other University. You can use the reciepts for the phone.
