Question
Hi.
Proven here. I am a International Student on F1 Visa. I own a Network Marketing Business (Amway/Quixtar). I came to know that I can claim taxes for my business. I have spent significant amount on my busines in terms of Products & Services, Educational Material, Phone charges, Educational Material & Mileage.
Can you provide me some information about Tax Calculations for this purpose?

Answer
Proven,
First you are not allowed to own a business on F-1 status even if it is Amyway or whatever. As to taxes I would suggest that you contact a CPA for advise. I am sorry I am an immigration attorney and not a tax expert.

Sincerely,
Ramasamy Krishnan
