I am on H1B and play DraftKings (which is not considered as gambling). They issue 1099 misc form. Does it affect my H1B?

Hey I encourage you to speak with an immigration attorney to clarify if your DraftKings winnings are considered “passive activity.” Income derived from passive activities are permissible under immigration law. To read more check out IRS publication 925, which describes when income is passive.
