Return to income

I have a question about how to report foreign income. I work in a foreign country for a foreign company that doesn't issue a W-2. How do I go about reporting foreign income?

Regarding how to report foreign income, when a foreign employer doesn’t give you a W-2, you are still responsible for reporting foreign income wages on your Form 1040, Line 7. You should also keep records that verify the amounts you'll report on your return. When reporting foreign income, records can include paycheck stubs and bank statements.
