Rental income on H1B

Recommended Posts


I have a house in US for which I am still paying the mortgage and am working on H1B visa. 

Can anyone suggest if I am allowed to rent out my house in USA and have rental income on the H1B visa?

Rental income while on H1B falls in a gray area........if you are simply collecting rent then you may be OK. But if you are actively maintaining the property to make it rent worthy, responding to tenant calls etc then it can be considered as active employment in violation of H1B laws.
