Payroll company differs. Is it Violation? 

Get OPT/CPT alerts to your inbox via http://bit.ly/1da2vrz

I was on opt working for a staffing company A. Company A gave me the offer letter,and I did all documents with company A. So I report to immigration office as I was employed by company A. However,when I received my W2 form this year, I found that it is company C paying me salary.That is to say, on W2 form,my employer is company C. I searched the name of company C,it seems that company A is the subsidiary of company C. 

1. Could there be any legal problem for that? 

I spoke with school's advisor, she asked me to report the company C on my OPT form. But I think it would be too late,since company C has already been paying me for nearly a year.And reporting now would give them an impression that I didn't report on time.etc.But in fact its not my fault. Plus,company A and company C are basically one company under different name.because Company C owns company A.

2. So my friends, what do you recommend please?

Look for Full Time or Consulting

OPT/CPT Blast Resume to 2500+ employers viahttp://bit.ly/18niNwb

I am recent MS graduate in Information Systems Security (Cyber Security). 
1) My OPT is starting soon and need some suggestions on if I should apply for entry level positions at security companies OR should I join consulting firm and train in security related field like SAP BASIS or Networking? 
2) If I use some unpaid training period on OPT, will it affect my OPT STEM extension decision? 
3) Should Employer info be updated before OPT start date?

Thanks. All suggestions and opinions are appreciated.

OPT/CPT Blast Resume to 2500+ employers viahttp://bit.ly/18niNwb

I have accepted an offer from Company A who has filed my H1 B application on April 2014. I have an interview scheduled with Company B which looks to me a better job opportunity.

I have a couple of questions
1. To Company B, Can I directly say that I have a job offer from Company A if I am asked
2. If I get an offer from company B. Is it possible for Company B to pull my H1 B application from Company A
3. At what time should I let company A know if I decide to join Company B
4. Also, can Company B refuse to file my H1 B , eventhough it is filed my Company A

Hi,I am an OPT student doing my Thesis. My OPT Expires in July and haven't graduated yet. I know that USCIS has released a memo regarding that, thesis students can apply for opt-extension without grad diploma. 

But My doubts are:

1) what are docs required for applying Opt-ext while still doing thesis.

2) Has anyone applied like this and got approval?

I am really worried, Please some one help me.

2012 Taxes not Filed?

OPT/CPT Blast Resume to 2500+ employers viahttp://bit.ly/18niNwb

Hi , I started my education in US in spring 2013. I came in December 2012. I just realized that I did not file my 8843 form last year for the year 2012. I filed my taxes this year

1. I was unemployed then and I did not send out my 8843 form as well. Is it an issue that I did not send 8843 for year 2012 or is it fine ?

Reporting E-verified Employer

Get OPT/CPT alerts to your inbox via http://bit.ly/1da2vrz

I am on regular 12 month OPT since late of January 2014. As I was coming close to completion of my 90 days, I have joined an e-verified consultancy to avoid my 90 days of unemployment. Right now, I am doing an unpaid training with them. 

1. So is it okay, to report the name of consultancy as my current employer to my school to keep my OPT info updated and avoid 90 day rule?

Tax status unavailable?

OPT/CPT Blast Resume to 2500+ employers via http://bit.ly/18niNwb

Hello, I filed my taxes (1040NR) and mailed the paper to IRS on March 9th. Its been 4 weeks and there is no status on "Where's my refund". My friend who sent with me already got the refund. 

1.Is there a reason why my processing may be late? 
2.Did anyone else experience the same? 

I am worried because I had filed 1040 by mistake last year. Could that be a reason? Thanks!!
