So I am in a bit of a pickle. I am 17 years of age and have just started freelancing and am loving it! I currently use Upwork.com to find clients to do work with. However, I created an account for Upwork in 2015 when I was even younger, which means I must have (regrettably, I know guys...) put a fake birth date when I was 14 years old and a dumb freshman to get into the site. I recently have discovered that I must be 18 years old to use Upwork.com because contracts are only legally binding when you are 18 years old and above.
So, with all of this being said, I will have made around $400-$500 after my current job is done. Since this money is technically "ill-gotten" since I used Upwork as a minor, how do I file this money for taxes? Am I even able to file taxes since the money I earned was earned on a website where I violated TOS? The LAST thing I need is to have the IRS come back on me for tax evasion when I'm 30 years old.
I understand what I have done here is wrong, but it was all unintentional. I didn't create an account for Upwork with the intention of violating the TOS.
If you guys could help me out, it would be highly appreciated.
