Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hello! I am a CPA here to assist you with your tax questions. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.
How are you today?
You need to keep documentation of what you earned, such as your paystubs. If you have a foreign equivalent of a W-2 that would be good.
i work as part time job as expert upon request and they are paying me up my services for each month so the a mount it varies form month to month so I am not sure that pay stubs work and I have no W2 so what is the solution here I thought I can get it so do you have solution for me please?
Just keep copies of the checks that they give you. If you don't have that, then your bank statements should be enough
I got the money by money gram western union or cash some times they send it to me so .
Just keep copies of whatever you have showing your income - whether it be bank statements. If they give you cash, then just keep a log
Is there anything else I can assist you with today?
I am trying to request like statement from the employer is this better .
You could do that, if they are willing to give the statement
but they dont know there how the statement looks like I mean what the information on the statement that I need it from them there.
All you would need is just a statement saying that you work for them, and how much they have paid you
Did you have any further questions about this?
what about my job description is important to be mentioned on such statement or not , also date when I start working for them
For tax purposes that's not needed ... just how much you earned is fine
I need to know what I R S focusing on to be prepared
in case I audited
The IRS is not concerned about your job description. They just want to know how much money you make
because I efill by-myself last year so I might made mistakes when Ifilled
so are you sure about that is only that I am working for them and how much I get after tax there right
Yes, that's all you need. That's all the information that is on a W-2
I mean gross or net income
Both would be good
with detail s
Yes, that would be good
or just amount because there alot of tax in my home country
The gross amount is what the IRS is concerned about, but you can also get the net if you wanted
so it is better to be detailed can you send me like a link or a sample show it to s how this statement should so I send it to them and they might they agree to do one like it
I don't have a sample for this... this is not a normal circumstance
really because they offering different statement but it is contain any income amount ok I will look for it by-myself , I thought there are stander form what is about form 4852 is it appropriate for me
Form 4852 is for a situation where your American employer doesn't issue you a W-2 or you lose yours and can't get a replacement
It's not for a foreign employer
I see thank you so much , just to be sure all what I need just statement form the employer that contains gross income , name of company , address , contacts .
and this is enough
Yes, this is enough
irs would request an extra staff up to your experience
like work contract because I have not one
is it required
No, it's not required
Is there anything else I can help you with today?
please I know that I repeating are you sure IRS would not request any extra document in such cases upto your experience
Yes, I am sure that the IRS would not require any additional documentation other than what we have already discussed
thank you so much have good night
