the lady friend is on disability so she has to turn over all her pay stubs to her mother who then fills out the paperwork for monthly income
i have started her mystery shopping and she is wondering when to report her income and if she as flexibility from month to month... mainly as many companies wait about a month to pay so she might get a check for work completed in the prior month... or she might get a check at the end of the month and then deposit it the next month (say receive a check on the 31st and deposit it on the 1st of the following month)
does anyone have any experience with this? does it really matter if she reports her earnings in one month or the next?
also most 1099 forms are lump sums... they do not differentiate as to when someone earned money in what month. so how would she report this?
