Newbie to the US, Indepedent Contractor question

I'm a European person who just obtained US residency at mid-December 2014. Between the 20-30 of December 2014, I did work for a French company as an independent contractor. I sent the bill out before the end of the year. I got paid in early 2015.

I made about 700 USD, so I understand I must file taxes in the US.

I don't have a W2 from the French company, neither is there an 1099. Is there another form that would be appropriate to detail the origin of this income?

Thank you!

firm.


neither is there an 1099. Is there another form that would be appropriate to detail the origin of this income?======>>>>>>>>>>>>>>.So you are a US resident for tax purposes? What is your visa status. In general, you need to report your self employer income that you earn in US on your US return.even if there is no 1099, you need to report your self employer income on Sch C of 1040.



If you are a non resident alien , then you are only required to pay income tax on any income that is earned or otherwise realized from a U.S. source. you do not have to pay tax on any foreign-earned income. For example, someone from abroad who owns a business in a foreign nation and another in the U.S. will only be taxed on the income from the latter source. The foreign business will be ignored.

I am a Lawful Permanent Resident (Green Card Holder). The US is my place of residence since mid-December 2014. I did work for the French company after relocating to the US because I had a project lined up with them right before my move.

In general, you need to report your self employer income that you earn in US on your US return.even if there is no 1099, you need to report your self employer income on Sch C of 1040.

Great, thank you for the info!

I'm a resident alien.
