I am filing as a dual status resident in 2014. I was a non resident alien for the first part of the year and a resident alien for the second part.
I received a 1099-misc for income earned throughout the year. Is this a problem in terms of getting a green card, etc.?
I read that this is deemed self employment income. I also read that it is not subject to self employment tax while a resident alien. Is this the case?
If so, do I record self-employment tax on the 1040 for only the income earned after I became a resident? Do I just report the net income earned while a non resident on the 1040, with no calculation for self employment taxes? In other words, is this income treated differently for the two periods?
Can I continue receiving this income this way while on opt? I was on opt and post opt while receiving this. I will be activating my H1B visa soon.
