What Is I-9 Form 2018

The Employment Eligibility Verification, Form I-9, is a United States Citizenship and Immigration Services document. Since 1986 this form is used to verify an employee’s identity with their employer. This is intended to control the legal authorization to work to all paid workers.

Due to the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 that requires all employers to verify the new employees, workers have to complete the I-9 at the time of hire.

Note that the document is not required for independent contractors or unpaid volunteers. However, there may be some exceptions.

Which Version of The Form I need to Prepare?

There are some versions of the I-9 Form. The latest one was published by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services on November 14, 2016. The 2023 template was acceptable until January 22, 2017. Since then only the I-9 2023 version can be used.

Learn the List of the Required Information and Documents

As an employee you have to fill out only Section 1. Section 2 has to be completed by the employer within three days of the worker’s starting date of employment. The superior has to ensure that the paper is filled out in time and is completed according to the requirements.

The worker has to indicate

  • their personal information i.e. full name, address, date of birth;
  • Social Security number;
  • email address and contact numbers.

The new employee also has to prsome documents.

  • The one that confirms identity and employment eligibility or
  • The one that confirms identity together with another document that confirms employment eligibility.

Check Lists A, B and C of the Documentation for proof of identity or employment authorization to find out more details about the required papers.

Note that an alien who has the legal right to work in the United States has to prthe alien registration number or indicate Form I-94 admission number.

The prospective employee has to sign the I-9 2023 and add the current date.

Additional Points to Remember

It is critically important to pronly true details. False information may lead to fines and even imprisonment.

In case a person needs some help to prepare the document (because of disability, or young age), then the special individual assisting them has to specify his/her personal data and sign the form as well.

If a worker cannot properly read or write in English, a translator or preparer has to fill out the blank and sign it on behalf of the employee. Note that in this case the worker is required to add their signature as well.

FAQ - Form I-9 2018

The purpose of Form I-9 is to document and enforce immigration laws relating to employment, work permits, and visas, as they affect the employee. If the employer fails to comply with all immigration laws (as well as employment and work permit requirements), they may be charged and/or fined a fine. What are the requirements to prepare and file Form I-9 or have an employee prepare Form I-9 for you? The employer does not have to prepare Form I-9 on its own, but they must provide it to Form I-9, along with a completed Form W-4 by the employee, and sign the form. Can any form of proof of alien status be used instead of a non-immigrant visa number as a work permit and/or work permit number? Yes. An alien can use any documentation they have to prove their identity and employment relationship but an H-1B visa applicant is required to use a non-immigrant visa and also a work visa. Can an employer request documents from a non-immigrant visa applicant that they must use in order to work legally in the United States? Not in most situations. The Form I-9 form requires documentation from the employees of the employer. Can an alien submit paperless I-9, Form I-9-EZ, or Form I-9-O in lieu of filing paper Form I-9? No, a single Form I-9 is the required form and must be filed with Form I-9. A single Form I-9-EZ or Form I-9-O should be filed on another type of paper which can be removed from the employee's personnel file once completed, e.g. an employment contract. Can an employer request the Form I-9 from a non-immigrant visa applicant before they commence their employment to avoid a work permit denial? Yes. A non-immigrant visa applicant must have the Form I-9 from the alien submitted before they commence their employment to ensure they are on the payroll. Any further delays are not permissible. Can an alien submit a copy of their Form I-9 to their employer, and they make a waiver by signing waivers from various federal agencies on the copy of Form I-9? No, but a waiver should be entered on the original, not a copy.
If you are a U.S. Citizen or a non-citizen with permanent resident status, you should complete Form I-9 for the following categories, as follows: Employment Permanent resident (i.e., Green Card) holders Employment is based on the wages paid and the employment activity. Wage information can be found on Form W-4 or on the Bureau of Labor Statistics Wage tab on the U.S. Department of Labor's website. Probationary Periods Permanent residents with a probationary period should complete Form I-9 for the entire period that the status is in place. Work Permits If you have a work permit, you should complete Form W-2 or W-3. If you are a non-citizen with a permanent resident status, and you have a work permit, that work permit can be applied for by completing the form and showing your valid work permit, and the U.S. Department of Labor website will indicate whether you need it for your job. If you have a work permit, you need to show your own ID card to any employer, to enter the U.S., work out of state, or get services from government contractors to work as a contractor. If you are in the U.S. on a tourist visa and have an employment or work permit from a country not listed below, you do not have to file Form I-9 for that employer. You can use Form W-4 instead. Citizens of the following countries must: Submit Form I-9 to: Bureau of Labor Statistics Wage tab (U.S. Department of Labor website) If your work permit is from a country on the list above, include either a copy of your permit with Form I-9 or a copy of Form W-4. Citizens of the following countries should: Complete Form I-9, if filing for unemployment insurance, in your area, for the applicable employment. If you are not in the U.S. and do not use social security numbers (SSN), you must obtain the SSN from your employer.

You must file Form I-9 after your first anniversary of separation date. Filing an Information Return Once you have completed an I-9 or if you plan to do so within one year of your separation, you must file Form I-9 each year.

If your income is less than 100,000, use Form 1040X. If you have an independent contractor income, use Form 1040EZ. The instructions for each form include specific information for independent contractors and their employers. You must attach any required attachments before you file Form I-9. See “Attachments” in Part 3. You must mail your tax records, including any Form I-9s and IRS Forms 2350, 2545, or 2359 if applicable, to the address specified on Form I-9. If you do not mail or deliver copies of your tax returns, you will be responsible to correct any mistakes. You may not submit Form I-9 with a return that is subject to an adjustment, including any Form 1040X, Form 1040A, and Form 1040PX. If you are required to file a correction of income, you must do so on Form 1042.

For those not in the EU, you should use Form I-766 N, National Employment Authorization Document or Form I-766P, Employment Authorization Document for Nonimmigrants. (In some circumstances, this second form is sufficient if you are a qualified Indian citizen.) The form must be signed in the presence of two witnesses. Can my spouse and/or child fill out Form I-9? A. If your spouse and/or child are under the age of 18 or over 65 years old, and you meet all the other eligibility requirements, then you may file Form I-9 and file Form I-864, Application for Adjustment of Status. For more information, please visit our Eligibility and Petition Information pages.
With your F-1 Filing Form I-9, you have already completed and submitted a completed Form I-9. Please refer to question 6 for guidance with regard to your next steps. When will I receive my F-1 Filing form? Our F-1 Filing system receives form I-9 by mail and also, from some employers when they are ready to submit their Form I-9. We do not receive Forms on the F-1 Filing System and, as such, we do not mail, fax, or email Forms to students or their advisers. However, if you are an applicant for assistance and do not have an email address that we recognize, you may apply using a paper form or by phone using a toll-free telephone number and provide us with the appropriate information (e.g., mailing address, phone number, zip code), in order for the system to attempt to contact the appropriate school. How much time do I need to complete filing the F-1 Filing form? It is important that you take the appropriate amount of personal time to complete the required pages. This will help prevent unnecessary delays in completing the forms. We have found that students who take extra time to review their forms will receive faster responses when submitting them. Do I need to submit a copy of the I-911 forms to receive assistance by an F-1 or a D-1 student with a mental health or substance abuse disability? Yes. These forms and some other forms to aid in the filing and processing of your Form I-9, must be sent directly to the appropriate school, in order to receive the appropriate assistance. We do not allow a copy of the completed forms to be forwarded to a student.
The Form I-9 requires an address in which the company will process your tax return. If the business is listed as sole proprietor, owner-employee or partnership, you must provide your principal place of business. If you have a contract with other parties that include both sole proprietors and owners-employees, you should use the name of the owner-employee. If you are a sole proprietor or sole proprietor-employee, you are liable to your employees for self-employment tax on their salary or wages. They also will be required to withhold Federal Income Tax at their own rates. In case of the employee's death, the self-employment tax is paid by the executor or administrator of the estate. Employers and/or employees should discuss their obligations with the IRS. Self-employment tax is not applied retroactively and your employees may not have the same tax liability for 2017 as was imposed in 2016 for the preceding tax year. As far as they are concerned, they will be treated as self-employed individuals for the tax year in which they file their 2017 tax return. What if business isn't in my home state? If you do not earn any profit from your business in your home state, you may have to file a State Income Tax Return in that state. You should obtain a copy of the applicable State Tax Returns. For example: • Missouri requires filing in Jefferson City. • Virginia requires filing in Prince William County. • California requires filing in Santa Clara County. If you choose to file Form I-9 instead of your State Income Tax Return, you can file it at any time up to the first day of the calendar year following the year you file. What if the business isn't in my home state? If you don't pay any tax on a revenue of 1,000, this means that you don't owe any tax in this state. If you aren't sure whether you're exempt, use the Form 8300EZ. How do I obtain a Form I-9? To obtain a Form I-9 application, contact the IRS. You can find application forms at IR-2016-2, and IR-2016-3.
Only those documents you file with your Form I-9 will be considered by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services and listed on your Form I-9 in order to calculate your immigrant visa fees. You can attach any and all documents you believe are necessary (e.g., travel itinerary, resume, transcript, etc.) to each and every section of Form I-9: Section 1, Subsection A, Section 2, Subsection B, Section 3, Subsection C, etc. What documents are not valid for immigrant visa purposes? You should not use any of the following documents to submit any Form I-9 forms to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services: Driver's license Passport Military orders, licenses, and credentials Student records or transcripts Court records Social Security records Employment contracts Voting records Credit reports W-2s Student loan records How much do immigrant visa fees cost? Immigrant visa fee fees are based on the types of immigrant visas (f-1, F-2, and F-3) you apply for: F-1: 55 F-2: 90 F-3: 135 Where can I obtain information about immigrant visa information? This page provides general, visa and immigration information. For the most up-to-date immigration and visa information, as well as a guide regarding the eligibility, requirements, and filing process, see Please note: USCIS immigration information is designed to support the needs of USCIS officers. USCIS is not responsible for the interpretation or application of USCIS regulations or opinions, nor makes any representations about the value of immigration or visa information. What are the options for immigrant visa applicants who do not want the I-968? To help you better understand this decision, and the implications for you, and your family, these documents show the options for immigrants who no longer wish to use the new Form I-968 (I-9 Form Required). For a full listing of these materials, you can find them on the I-9 page under Options/Schedules. Please note: I-968, for the most part, is not considered as a separate document, but rather as part of the I-9.

It appears that you are a spouse of one of your U.S. citizen employees. What are the requirements for your business to send a U.S. employer Form I-9 to report their employment of you? A U.S. employer cannot include Form I-9 on their Form 1040 and submit it. Instead, the employer sends either Form DD-214 or Form N-460 (for permanent residents) to USCIS for payment of the tax liability. How do I know if a business I'm involved with does or does not pay income tax? A business is required to file a Form 1099 or Form U.S. Individual Income Tax Return with the Social Security Administration. What if I don't have a social security number? You may not be able to get a social security number for certain employment situations. For example, you will only be able to get a social security number, or “SSN”, if you are: Not a “citizen of the United States” (but a permanent resident); Not an alien; Not lawfully admitted for permanent residence; (note: the employer will still have to certify you are not a nonimmigrant); Not granted a certificate of authority to work; or Not a recipient of an exemption under federal or state law. Do I have to be a U.S. citizen to work in certain countries? Many countries, such as the United Kingdom and Australia, require foreign nationals to obtain a work permit to work there. Are there different forms of Form I-9? Yes. There are four different forms of a Form I-9. For information on which type is available for your business, visit the Department of State's US-VISIT site.
