I was on dependent O-3. But currently on EAD/AP status and our I-140 and I-485 is pending. I have a youTube channel. I want to put advertisement on my videos and earn money from YouTube. I have received SSN. As long as I pay tax for my earning, am I legally Okay to earn money from YouTube. It is really not an employment in Youtube. If I am Okay, how do I fill I-9 since I am not getting employed in Youtube? Do I really need an I-9 for earning from blogs and or Youtube? I just want to make sure whether this EAD is restricted to certain type of jobs and whether online earning like my case is prohibited or not.
Thank you in advance for your kind response.
