  • H-1b Sign in bonus

    I signed a 3 year contract with a hospital system, they offered a $10,000 sign in bonus, given in three installment at start of year.At start of my first year, they paid the money via check.I received 1099-Misc for that money in March 2010. It was included under non employment compensation on the form. My lawyer said sign on bonus is not included on H-1b Petition. Now filing tax return is tricky because of this money.Under H-1b rules I can't be self employed. However the tax return would show self employment income. Can any one help me figure out what to do.
