Customer Question
I'm filling a N-400 and...
I'm filling a N-400 and I have a question on part 7 which is about Employment/Schools.
On the instructions they say to put self-employed if you work for yourself.
so I'm not sure if this apply to me because of the following. Can you help me to clarify.
I own a 50% of an small corp since 2007 but I never worked for it till now. I used to get dividends only throught a K1
Should I considered myself as a regular employee of my own company since i'm getting a w2 at the end of the year or should i refer to me as self-employed because i have ownership although i'm not getting 1099?

That's a good question, but NO, you would not be classified as Self-Employed.

Yes, you would be classified as a regular employee as you don't actually work for yourself, the corporation is

considered a separate "person" (entity) and the corporation is the Employer.
