In 2011 I worked for a start-up company for 10 days which paid me $2500, during which I was on OPT. The startup company initially offered me a full time position, but I said I can only work for 10 days as I had an other offer. Now they have sent me a 1099-Misc form for that amount, but I was on OPT that time. Now I am on H1B and planning to apply for a permanent residence now. Can you please let me know how big of a problem is this and is there anything that I can do to fix this. I haven't filed my taxes yet, so should I speak to the company which sent me the 1099 form.
