Hi. Great Question.

Since the Canadian government does not pay into the U.S. Tax system, you place the amount on Schedule C and are subject to self-employment income. However, if you are not considered a "contractor" for the company and are considered an employee, you cannot claim any expenses on this form. Self-Employment tax is approximately a little over 15%. Also - you are able to deduct 1/2 of your self-employment tax, when you are figuring out your taxable income (that is subject to your regular income tax rate).

Equity in the company - no worries on taxes, until you sell it.
