Need advice: I submitted my eQIP for a public trust position and forgot to list working the election polls under employment. After submitting the change to the security office, I realized that I had not received a 1099-MISC and didn’t file it on my taxes. The sum was $250 and I intend to file an amendment today. The problem is, that means I should have answered yes to question 18 on the addition branch questions sheet for public trust positions (question: In the past seven years, have you failed to file or pay Federal, state or other taxes when required by law or ordinance?)
How should I handle this? I feel really stupid reaching back out to the Safety and Security office at the agency again. My EOD is coming up soon and I am in freakout mode. None of this was intentional. I recently got married, and our taxes were crazy to file this year. This payment slipped through the cracks.
Will this likely cause a rejection in my clearance? Advice is greatly appreciated!
