    Can F1 student run a home-based business ??

    viknabar Newbie

      I am a F1-Student currently in school. My partner is a US-Citizen.

      We were planning to start a home based business which will offer consulting services all over the world. Initially we will run this in USA,India and China as we have contacts in these countries.

      Can I legally run a home-based business while I am on F1 status?

      I will be the owner of this business. I and my partner will share profits/expenses in future.

      Please respond if you have any ideas or suggestions about how can I run this business.

      Also if you have any ideas about tax payments for F1 student running business. Kindly let me know.

      Thanks in advance.
