Question

My only income is from cleaning houses, and I did not received a W-2 or a 1099. How do I file my taxes?

Answer

You should file a Schedule C. Even if you did not receive a W-2 or a Form 1099-MISC, you must include all the income you earned. You can also deduct any of your allowed business expenses on Schedule C.
