TN paid as 1099 - real estate immigration income tax

I'm a computer software consultant on TN status. I wonder if I can be paid
on 1099 as a contractor.
As a W2 employee, I don't get benefit from the company. And the consulting
business requires me get new projects by myself and spend a lot of expenses
like traveling and relocation as a second temporary home. I have a permanent
home where my family lives.
I have to come back weekly or twice a week.
Could explain if I can be paid on 1099 which is allow by law and how?
Much thanks.
david ingram replies:
As a W-2 employee, your employer is paying half of your Social Security and
Medicare.  You have to pay both halves as a 1099 MISC.
The expenses you describe should be deductible if you file a 2106 for
business expenses as part of your 1040.
If  you are a TN, you should likely be sending your returns to us in Canada/

The office is a home office and is still suffering from trying to stuff
2,000 square feet of office stuff into a 3,000 square foot house which was
already too full.  Along with a 12 by 40 foot warehouse stuffed to the roof,
I have a pile of furniture in the front yard covered with tarps while I
leisurely decide what to throw away.

is at the top of Lonsdale, the main "up and down" the Mountain Street in
North Vancouver.
It is exit 18 if you come over the Second Narrows Bridge and just stay on
the highway.  Come over Second Narrows, stay on the road past exit 22, etc
and turn off at Exit 18.  Go right UP the hill when you get to Lonsdale.
If you come over the Lion's Gate, you can just follow Marine Drive in an
Easterly direction until you come to Lonsdale.  When you get to Lonsdale,
turn left and come up the hill.
Faster is to come off the Lion's Gate bridge  turning right into North
Vancouver and then left at the first set of lights which is Capilano Road.
Go up Capilano PAST the first set of lights and turn right onto the highway
(going east) at the second set of lights.  Take the second exit you come to
which is exit 18 and Lonsdale.  Turn left (up the hill) at Lonsdale.
Now from either direction, you go up Lonsdale to the top.  Lonsdale comes to
an end and you turn left (west) 3 houses to a stop sign.  This is Prospect
Road to the right and Montroyal Boulevard straight ahead.
Turn RIGHT up Prospect Road and climb the hill.  At the top it flattens out
and curves around to the left and then to the right in an "S" curve.  When
you come out of the curve, 4466 Prospect Road is just about straight ahead
on the right.
The number is on the mailbox and on the flat curb.  At the moment, the
bottom of the driveway still has Halloween decorations up with a couple of
skeletons in a tree and a spider covered 53 Sheriff's Car parked in front of
the house.
Do not go up the driveway unless you are a real good backer-upper.  There is
no room to turn around at the top and we back up the driveway.
There are 51 steps. If you have problems with steps please phone ahead or
use your cell so that we can come down and drive you up.  I also have
another office (not available on weekends) where I can meet anyone who is
uncomfortable.  I have had the other office for 13 months and have yet to
use it.  One associate used it for about seven days and it just sits there.
But it is wheelchair accessible, etc.
There are no message machines on any of the lines.  If I do not answer, no
one is available.  If it is really important, (caught at a border, in your
bank manager's office) phone three times in a row. I will even walk out of a
movie to take a call if I see the same number three times in a row on my
Another thing I will do when busy is answer the phone and ask you to call
back in 15 minutes, one hour, etc.
Again, if something is really important, call me three times and I will do
my best to take the call.
