Confusion about New Mexico's gross receipts tax
Hi all, I am new here and not tax savvy at all and I need help with my current situation.
I moved from California to New Mexico in December 2016 to work at a nail salon as a nail technician. I get paid commission on a weekly basis and the owner collects tax for gross receipts on each service performed on a customer on behalf of all employees and file that tax return to the state.
For 2017 tax return, the owner gave me a 1099-MISC form to file. I went to H&R block and they did the filing for me and then informed me that in the state of New Mexico, I have to register for a CRS(Combined Reporting System) ID due to my tax being filed as a 1099-MISC. I didnt know anything about it and so did what I was told and register for a CRS ID. Now, my ID identify me as the owner of the nail salon and is telling me that I am not in compliance and that I have to file gross receipts for the period that I've worked at the nail salon.
What can I do to let the tax department in New Mexico know that I am an employee at the nail salon and that the owner collects tax for each service charged and that money is reported as gross receipts tax, not the employees.
I am honestly really confused by all this because I've never heard of CRS before. It is something unique to this state? I want to be compliant and be a responsible citizen and not break any tax laws here in New Mexico.
