What is the purpose of Form Of-306?
Form of-306 requests the Department to “make available” to the affected person an employee record of the determination or audit that was completed on the affected person's behalf. The request may be for any individual determination or audit (as described below).
An employee record of an affected person's determination or audit is a final employee record of a determination, audit, or investigation. It is made available for the requesting party, at the employee's request, to view and audit (on the employee's computer) as described below. The Department maintains the determination or audit (as described below) in the file of the employee when the determination or audit was made.
How does the Department determine whether an investigation or determination was made on an employee's behalf?
The Department determines whether an investigation or determination was completed on the employee's behalf based on records management practices of the Department. The Department also determines whether an investigation was completed on an affected person's behalf based on the relevant record of investigation and the criteria specified in the policy. In considering whether the determination, audit, or investigation was completed on your behalf, the Department's records management process takes the following steps:
If the employee agrees to have his or her personnel file containing the record (investigation, determination, audit, or review) reviewed or audited (on his or her computer, CD-ROM, or other device), the employee is notified by letter or electronic mail and advised by telephone and/or letter to review the file, if any, and arrange for a time and place to attend the designated reviewing and/or audit (if requested).
If the employee objecting to the review requests that the Department review the record on his or her behalf, the Department provides, with a letter, a statement explaining that the Department cannot review an employee's record of investigation or decision unless the employee agrees in writing to be examined by the Department's personnel officers. The letter explains that a determination, audit, or investigation is final. If the employee agrees to be reviewed, the document includes a sample letter explaining that the employee agrees to be reviewed.
If the employee does not request any review and does not object to the inspection of his or her record of investigation or decision, the employee is reviewed (and examined, if requested).

When is my Form-306 considered filed?
Form-306 is submitted in the “Filing Status” column of Form I-129, Application for a Nonimmigrant Worker, and is considered filed if it is acknowledged as filed by the employer by mail, or in person. If you do not have a completed Form I-129, and have a valid I-797 receipt, but are outside the United States, Form-306 is considered filed in the “Filing Status” column of Form I-797 if you are inside the United States when the form is received.

The purpose of this document is to provide the employer with proof that the employee will be authorized to work in the country of employment and therefore will qualify for nonimmigrant visas.
Can I create my own Form Of-306?
Can I submit my tax returns under Form-306?
Yes, and you should submit the IRS' certified Form-306 electronically via.
Does Form-306 affect my tax liability?
No, Form-306 isn't an extension of time to file your tax return and the IRS can't change your return (in most cases) by including it on Form-306.
Is Form-306 considered an extension of the 5-year statute of limitations?
When Form-306 is filed, the IRS will consider it an extension of the 5-year statute of limitations from your date of first notice. The statute of limitations is 6 years from the date the IRS first receives notice of your federal income tax liability (usually the date you file your tax return).
The statute of limitations runs indefinitely (without regard to the filing of Form-306) if you haven't filed your federal income tax return due to a complete or substantial change or a change in circumstances that could result in a change in your federal income tax liability. For example, the statute of limitations for failure to file taxes due to the death of a spouse is 4 years from the date the IRS first receives notice of his or her federal income tax liability (usually the date you file your tax return).
What do I need to add to Form-306?
If you want to attach a Form-306 to your return, add the following items to your Form-306:
a copy of Form-11, Your Federal Individual Income Tax Return, and a copy of Form-260, Amended U.S. Individual Income Tax Return
a copy of all other information that has been omitted from the Form-11 that appears on the attached Form-306
If you don't want to attach a Form-260, you can use Form-261, Amended U.S. Individual Income Tax Return, to substitute for the information that has been omitted on your return.
Does Form-306 replace a prior filing requirement?
Form-260 and Form-261 were filed separately because they had different deadlines and didn't meet a common threshold of information that had been omitted from the earlier forms.
Form-306 doesn't replace a prior filing requirement, so you can retain them (form-260 and form-261) as separate items, using the same deadline for completing them.

Q. My spouse was admitted, but is the permanent resident (e.g., green card) dependent. Do I need the joint federal income return?
A. Yes. Your spouse must be admitted under the terms of your current or previous immigration status, or the conditions under which the alien was admitted are no longer available. You will, however, need a joint federal income return in order to show an excess adjustment of basis resulting from an investment in property for which Form(s) W-2 has not been filed. Also, if your spouse was admitted under the terms of your existing immigration status, you may be eligible for a refund of certain penalties and interest due under IRC §673 due to nonreporting of interest and penalties. Refer to Form of-306, if applicable, or Form of-308, if your spouse is a nonresident alien. The full amount of any penalties or interest not paid on a credit or refund due to a Form of-308 or Form of-306 that is not filed should be paid to the IRS.

Yes, a taxpayer who is a spouse or a dependent of another taxpayer who is a U.S. citizen or resident and was not admitted as a refugee during the 10-year period ending with the taxable year in which it is elected, may elect to defer until its fifth anniversary the payment of U.S. taxation of all U.S. source capital gains attributable to the election made under IRC §72(p)(6)(A)(ii).

What are the different types of Form Of-306?
Form of-306 is only filed to confirm that the individual is still a resident of the United States. It does not allow for an employer to request a Social Insurance Number if the individual has never been reported as a covered person or worker by an employer. If you are currently covered and have worked as an employee with no gaps in coverage, you must complete Form-208.
If you are not currently covered, then Form-308 is filed, and for each type of Form of-306 filed more than one year ago, the employer will receive an I-9A and I-9B.
What documents must provide evidence of my status as an employee?
Form of-307 is the form employers must get from your employer in order to work out your benefits and payment requirements. The evidence required, for some companies, is a copy of your employment contract, employee handbooks, a company letter-of-license, or any other business-required documentation.
Form of-307 also requires additional proof of your status as a covered person or worker. You typically cannot present proof of your status without the documentation that has not yet cleared with the Social Security Administration (SSA). If Form of-307 has not been filed, your employer will use other evidence (your contract, handbooks, etc.) to determine how much you should be paid.
The types of documentation that must be completed for F-1 and F-1A students are the same for all students.
What benefits do I qualify for when applying for a Social Security number?
You must be eligible to work. You must have paid Social Security taxes for the previous tax year. And your filing status must be:
F-1, F-1A, J, or M; or FEE eligible.
What if I need to change my address?
You can request that the IRS change your Social Security number (SSN) on the Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) Application Process webpage. For example, if you're an applicant who needs to change your address because your previous address is a federal prison, and you want to use the prison address for your Form of-S-16, you must file Form 1040X and give a new address to the IRS. For all other applicants, you must give all changes to the IRS and wait for approval from the IRS.
How many people fill out Form Of-306 each year?
The U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service tracks forms submitted by U.S. citizens and non-nationals alike. Between 2012 and 2016, according to government data, about 45 million people filed applications for permanent resident status.
That's a lot of data for one group.
“We don't want to be inundated with the same data in the same way and expect to be able to make inferences,” says Jeffrey Passel, director of research at Pew Research Center. “I think one thing we do want to do is provide insights on a broader range of issues that may not be possible through data sets that are just focused on individuals.”
That's why, he says, his team is making all Form Of-306 forms publicly available. It'll help people see how many people around the country are applying for permanent residency, and help federal officials understand how many people are eligible.
“It might not be what the average person is thinking,” he says. “People may think they're just a number.”
But some people -- including those who are in the United States illegally -- are very concerned that the government might come after them through this data.
“If there's another system that was created on Form Of-306 where someone's address information is provided, if someone's given an address that indicates they're an undocumented person in the United States, then they might get kicked out,” says Hill Bloch, a San Francisco immigration attorney and co-founder of the National Immigration Forum.
Bloch worries that information shared between Form Of-306 forms and Department Of Homeland Security databases might be used against undocumented immigrants. She says it also means that undocumented immigrants may unknowingly get arrested.
“If I'm in the United States, if I'm arrested, that could lead to the immigration authorities, ICE would potentially hold me because their [immigration] databases include my address,” she says.
In response, the Department Of Homeland Security and the USCIS said they do not share information with immigration authorities when it comes to Form Of-306 applications.
But it's never a guarantee. The government is bound by law to provide a “reasonable suspicion” that a person does not have lawful immigration status. But there's no way to determine when the information is accurate or accurate enough to warrant getting such high stakes.
“There's always some risk when a U.S. citizen submits a Form Of-306,” he says.
Is there a due date for Form Of-306?
Not currently. We look forward to completing this document soon.
Can I get a Form of-306 at any time?
You must file Form-306 within 30 and 45 days of the due date specified on the original or “Form Of-305.”
Can I appeal or challenge the filing of Form of-305?
Yes. To seek an administrative or judicial review of a Form of-305 filed by the Service, the filing person (the taxpayer) must file and serve a Request for an Administrative Review of Inadequate Tax Return With the Taxpayer Counseling Service (TCS), a Taxpayer Advocate Service (TAS), or a Taxpayer Advocate in Small Claims (TIS) program. You must file your Request for an Administrative Review of Inadequate Tax Return within 30 days and must send your Request for an Administrative Review of Inadequate Tax Return by mail to:
PO Box 7500
Washington, DC 20
Please note: This process does not allow you an appeal of Form of-305 filed by the Service. TCS and TAS do not consider appeals of tax returns to this office.
