Certainly - ensure you report the income on your taxes.


My Advice is usually based on "Worst Case Scenario" and what is written in the rules/laws/instructions. That is the way I roll... -Protect your Status - file before your I-94 expires.

WARNING: Phrases in this post may sound meaner than they were intended to be. Read the Adjudicator's Field Manual from USCIS

Working for cash makes you an independent contractor. As such you need to ask for a 1099 form from the employer. This allows you to file taxes & working legally.

You are not doing anything wrong. In a legal sense an independent contactor supplies labor & possibly tools to do work but can not supply materials. You should get the 1099 from the employer before April 15th of 2011.

There is another post that explains how you can file your taxes later.

An independent contractor also sets his/her own hours. She would probably be a statutory employee, but either way, she needs to report the income on Schedule C and pay her Self-Employment taxes on Schedule SE.

ETA: Even if she does not get a 1099 from her "Employer", she still is required to report income. 1099 are sent out before the January 31 following the end of the Tax Year to anyone paid more than $600 for labor.
