Just be prepared to loose half of anything you make (some states like NY) and deal with inflation with the other half :sick:

You are not allow to work if you are F1 status unless you are under training with your learning (very few get that) or you can work on-campus no more than 18 hours per week. So you better have connection with someone who can let you work without permit.

So you better live from your freelance job or try your luck in China :P

Hell yeah, I know how you feel. In Michigan one year I had a normal salary job and did a little freelance on top of it…and that actually re-classified all my earnings from the freelancing AND the normal job as all business earnings, which costed me more extra taxes than I made freelancing because Michigan taxes the hell out of business income way more than a normal employee salary income. Then politicians wonder why the businesses all leave Michigan and make its economy is 50th out of 50 and almost no jobs…seems like a pretty easy thing to put your finger on to me. end of political rant. :)

Do you know what taxes are in Illinois for freelancers?

My situation is a little bit different than yours, guys, cause my business is registered in my home country. So even if I’ll have to pay US taxes (and as I understood, I will have to pay) maybe I’ll get some ease because I’ll continue to pay my home-country taxes as well.
