Thank you Atty. Goldstein for responding to my question.
You may be right, a tax accountant or a CPA may be able to help.
I hope my answer was helpful.
I have always found responses to my questions, yours in particular, to be helpful.
I still await an answer from an attorney to this question. If I can determine my legal obligation to report "taxable income" correctly as it relates to the income reported on a W2 or 1099 form I would not risk perjury when I sign an IRS 1040 return.
You've made it clear that you can't provide a competent answer to the question I pose here and I accept that.
