Hi,

Okay i'm getting married soon to an American citizen in a few months, so I have to wait for my work permit.

However I was just offered a commission sales job, however I'm a canadian citizen. The person that interviewed me said all i need is a TIN # or he could just take a copy of my passport or Canadian social insurance number and pay that way as I'm hired as my own company and not an employee. He also said that they don't do taxes and just give me the commission cheques and I do the taxes myself. I don't understand how this works as I thought I needed a TN or H1B visa? How will this work. Won't it cause any problems while I'm here or with Canada Revenue Agency (IRS Canada)

Will I be able to cash my cheques without any difficulties? (I do have a US bank account though I'm not sure if there'll be issues with the IRS if I install these cheque payments).

Thank you.

You will still owe CA state taxes because of residency. You will be issued a 1099 at the end of the year, which shows you made the income with no deductions.

You are basically considered a contractor. The employer pays you your full amount of pay with no taxes taken out. As ferretkona said, they are required to give you a 1099 tax form at the end of the year. File this 1099 form with your U.S. taxes and you will have to pay those taxes at the end of the year. I would be wise to take out roughly 30% of your pay for every paycheck and put it away to pay for those taxes later.
