When I started working for him he had me sign an NDA, but never presented any tax documents. Which obviously I viewed as weird but I was in need of money and overlooked it. I was paid weekly via his personal checks.
Cut to a year later, I quit working for him after I found out he was breaking the law in a few different ways, and I felt uncomfortable being and employee of his.
Now here is my real question, I never received any tax information and I know he did not file me in any regards with the IRS (he never filed california tax's he always would claim Illinois)
What should I do? Is this something that the IRS would even catch? How would I even start the process?
ps. dont know if it will help but my income was $50,500 for '13
Thank you for all the help!
So you received neither W2 nor 1099 but received in cash. If you worked during the tax year2013 and received cash as payment for your work, the IRS requires that you report the payment on your income tax return. Regardless of whether you received a W-2,1099, it is your responsibility to report your income and pay taxes. Generally, an employer is required to supply an employee with a W-2 (or 1099)at the end of each tax year, but certain circumstances might affect your employment status.so, If you worked during the tax year and received cash as payment for your labor, the IRS requires that you report the payment on your income tax return. Many times even cash payments are reported to the IRS via a 1099 form that the person/employer who paid you the cash will file,you would receive these 1099 forms just as you would the W-2 forms for standard taxes....
If you receive no 1099 form then you have to file as self-employed and still report your income.....As a freelancer or employee, you may be asked to sign a NDA with certain clients or companies. The purpose of an NDA is to keep the company's information private—maybe it has trade secrets or a special sauce that it doesn't want you poaching.it is a legal document.please contact irs for more accuarate info in detail
