I just have a couple of H-1B tax
/documentation questions I was hoping you could clarify (the company that's hiring me has an attorney assisting them pro bono as they're a non profit, but there are a few things that I've found in my research that don't seem to be being flagged up).
The attorney says the H-1B application is ready to file, but I think it needs to include more information about the employer in order to at least attempt to avoid an RFE- I understand that there is no foolproof way of doing so, but want to ensure the employer includes all information.
This is a non profit founded four years ago (it has a national profile) with increasing annual turnover, but no more than half a million dollars in any year- and are only now in the position where they're ready to hire actual employees- me and three others, all of whom were working there in a voluntary capacity at first, two of whom are the founders.
Where they have paid people in the past, they've been independent contractors
). Obviously therefore, as there have ben no employees, there are no payroll records/quarterly tax returns
etc up to now (though there are tax returns as required by 501c 3 organizations).
It's my understanding that as a small relatively new company, USCIS will look more closely at it. Is it advisable to send the tax return
Would a letter explaining that there have been no employees up to this point and giving details about the forthcoming employees be wise? Is there anything else you would advise?
What sort of tax and financial information should be submitted?
The attorney does not seem to think any of this is necessary, but from my research and reading, I am convinced it is. The founder/director has already updated their profile on VIBE (again, from my reading, the attorney advised that this was not necessary at this stage).
Any advice is gratefully received. I realise this may be a bit outside your area, but really wanted any advice you can give, particularly as pertains to tax etc documentation
