Please let me know if my answer is helpful or if I can provide further clarification or assistance.And, thanks for using justanswer.com!
What makes me a bona fide "afghan citizen?" The fact that I have been here for over 330? Also, what about my filing a w-2 with only two months on site? I did not file tax exempt, how will that affect me?
This is a stupid question but what does uninterrupted refer to? I ask because, I did take a 17 day R&R in May.
