  • Tax during CPT

    Dear DESI OPT , thanks for all the effort you put to address the questions of members.

    I would like to raise a question, I am at present working as an Intern(Independent Contractor) under CPT in a NGO and it is mentioned in the contract I will not be given any W2 benefits and I need to file the taxes (both state and federal) by myself at the end of the year. They made me fill a W-9 form on the very first day of joining and told that I will be getting a form 1099 mentioning all the money I have earned.

    I got my first paycheck in which there were no taxes deducted. I was wondering if there will be any problem while applying for OPT.

    Help would be greatly appreciated.

        Dude they are making all the payment to you so you need to file your taxes independently and for that you need to fill w-9 1099 form so can pay taxes a independent contractor , and you will be getting a taxpayer identification number (TIN) so you can pay through that . Don't worry cheers !!!

              You need to report your 1099 income on your tax return for the year and you will pay taxes on that earned income.

                When u r filing 2014 tax returns, mention these amount in your total income. Taxes will get deducted accordingly
