Customer Question
Hi there, I am currently...
Hi there, I am currently on the e3 visa living in new york. I started a new job last year. At the beginning of my contract I was given a check for my first two weeks of work. After that time, I was added to the payroll. I therefore now have a W2 and 1099 for 2015 from the same employer. Does this present any issues when doing my taxes? Looking forward to your response.

Dear Friend,

Hello and welcome. Thank you for providing an opportunity to assist you.

No.. that should never be a problem for you.

If you worked for an employer as an employee, but also performed work for the same employer as an independent contractor, you should get both a Form W-2 and a Form 1099-MISC after the end of the year. Report the income information from your W-2 on Line 7 of Form 1040, and your federal income tax withholding on Line 62 for the 2012 tax year. Report the income from your 1099-MISC on Schedule C. Once you complete Schedule C, report your profit or loss from self-employment on Line 12 of Form 1040.

I am sure this would help.

You may please leave a positive rating if this helps as this is the only way we are compensated for assisting you. Alternatively, you may revert back with a reply if you need further assistance or if I have missed out on any aspect of your question.

Warm Regards,
