I don't think you are suppose to work on 1099. If you are just on F1 then your immigration status doesn't allow you to even work and 1099 is a contractor payment. You get paid whatever the deal was and in the end of the year, you have to file the taxes on your income.

No, if you are international, then as far as I know, you can't work in 1099 at all. Its illegal.
Tax file na gare thah ta hudaina but remember your employer will file his taxes and will have your ssn and info submitted for the work done and expenses related to it.
So, if IRS is to flag you for any reason, then you will have some nice explaining to do and fine to pay along with taxes.

If you ended up working on 1099, please ......please and (once again please) file TAX...
IRS will not care your legal status and your authorization to work (that's USCIS), But they will go after your for even 1 cents, if for any reason they got you in their radar, and you will be in their system for many years with Red flag.

If you already started working, file your tax return reporting 1099 income and pay taxes. That's the best way. If you don't file return, IRS will send you notice to pay taxes you owed. The employer is supposed to issue 1099 MISC payment of $600 or over to you and IRS gets a copy of it.

If you have not started working you have time to think. Difference between receiving 1099-Misc(independent contractor) and W-2 is, 1099 means you're working for yourself and you are responsible for paying your FICA (social security and medicare) taxes. W-2 means you're working for your employer who will take care of your FICA taxes.

You cannot work for anyone on F1 without CPT or OPT. As you're on F1 you're not subject to FICA taxes. (but if you're not on CPT or OPT just file 1040 and pay FICA taxes, don't make it complicated to IRS). On OPT you can work on 1099-Misc. I don't know about CPT. IRS does not care about your status as long as you file and pay your taxes. It's USCIS you have to worry about.

This is based on my knowledge on tax, I'm not expert on legal stuff. Please use your own judgement.
