  • H1B Temporary Worker/ 1099 MISC Income

    Hello Everyone,

    Hope, everyone is doing well. I am a H1B worker in the united states at the moment. Last year, there was a pilot TV series filming in our apartment of residence which resulted in some inconvenience for me as a resident. The corresponding firm compensated me with 600$ accordingly and sent me a 1099 MISC filled in BOX-7(600$).

    I just wanted to understand if this is legal as a H1B worker. Please advice on the following.

    If this is not legal, what should be my next steps before filing my taxes ?
    1. How do I cancel the payment and return the money ?
    2. Is it legal and possible to re purpose the payment for a 1099 MISC 1.Rents section ?
