    Hi Ron,

    Here is my situation.

    I am on H1B visa. My I-140 is approved and i am waiting for my priority date to be current. I was working for client through the prime vendor and my employer who is holding my H1B visa.

    I have a typical situation. While working in my client place, I availed the bus pass from my client. Later on this year, Client HR Person has sent a If 1099 Misc income to me. Being on H1B, i was not expecting a 1099 Misc in my name as i was expecting it to be sent it to my employer. And that to i was not expecting that for availing a bus pass she will send a 1099 Misc for $490.


    Now my question is that is it illegal to get a 1099 Misc to avail the Bus pass of the client in my existing sitauion in H1B and waiting for my PD to become current?

    Yes it is legal. This won't be a problem for you. Go ahead and include it in your tax return.
