Immigration Consequences of Filing Taxes As A Non-Resident

bigstock-Blank-income-tax-forms-Americ-57717941.jpgOne of the hidden pitfalls that lawful permanent residents often overlook when considering how to preserve their immigration status is taxes. Most green card holders are aware of the risks of traveling outside for an extended period of time, but few are cognizant of the impact that taxes can have, particularly when filing IRS Tax Form 1040-NR. While the intent of this blog is not to provide tax advice (individuals should always consult with their accountants), lawful permanent residents may want to consult with both their CPA's and immigration attorneys before filing this particular form, which is for those who claim to be US Nonresident Aliens. In many cases, lawful permanent residents who file this form may be exposing themselves to or raise a presumption that they have abandoned their green card status.

Unlawful Voting Can Lead to Deportation | Illegal Voting and Citizenship

bigstock-A-politician-is-promoting-the--48974585.jpgThe basis and foundation of our democratic form of government is the right to vote. Voting is one of the most important tools Americans have to influence the policies the government implements. One of the most significant rights of American citizens age 18 years or older is the right to vote. Oftentimes, lawful permanent residents (LPRs) and/or non-resident aliens may have innocently, or through some misunderstanding, voted illegally in a United States election without realizing that they are not legally able to.

What If I Can't Attend My Citizenship Test? | Naturalization Interview Problems

citizensswearing.jpgUnder most circumstances, anybody who files an N-400 application for naturalization would want to see it through to its end. In order to become a citizen, the applicant must attend an interview at the local district office where he or she will be tested for basic proficiency with the English knowledge as well as knowledge of American civics. In general, very few matters should take precedence over a scheduled interview but in some cases, it is just not possible to attend an interview or there is some exigent circumstance that needs to take priority.
