Thanks Nelsona. So the income I generate with extra work will be income in addition to my income through employment. Somehow I always thought that in addition to the income from work, with my current status I am not legally allowed to generate income. And that I am restricted to work/duties related ...

Source of Income through small business

First of all, I was not sure if this question belongs to the tax forum or the immigration one. However, since it was related more to the income source, I planned to post it here - I am currently working in US (Canadian citizen) with a construction company (based in US). Now, I understand that I can ...

Thanks nelsona!! Yes, I understand that she will require a AP to re-enter. The lawyer has processed for me and my family I131. My wife and I got a "combo card" which indicates EAD/AP card! My daughter got a paper document with her picture on it. Also should we all enter on AP or it is "beneficial" f...

Re-Entering to US - TN or EAD

My wife and I are both Canadian citizens working in the US. I hold a H1 visa (expiry Sept 2013) while she is working on a TN Visa (expiry Oct 2014). IN March we received our EAD/AP combo card which was filed through my employer. The I-485 application is still pending for approval (PD Dec 2008). We p...

Company name change - I140 approved

I have my I-140 approved and my Priority date is current (EB2 - India). I just heard from HR, that there is going to be a change in the company name and that my paycheck will reflect the name of the subsidary company rather than the main company through which my Labor and I-140 was approved. I have ...

1. The company is in Canada and has no US affiliations, so it seems I am ok 2. I am in US on H1 visa. The reason I want to register for a sole proprietorship is to not get taxed on top of my personal income (employment). When you say I can register a business on H1; does it mean in the US? If so, th...

Thanks for the response! However, based on your answers, I have further questions - 1) The client is not US, but the work will be performed from US since I work full time here on a H1. As indicated earlier this will be as if I am doing freelance work. So it seems that I can work and raise extra inco...

Outside projects other than Employment (Canadian in US)

I am a Canadian citizen working on H1 visa in US. My family and I have cut all my ties with Canada since 2008 (departure return filed). I have been offered a project (fixed price) from a small company in Canada. Based on the current market trend, it seems I might be able to get more projects to work...

Thanks again for a quick response! You are the best!
That is what I thought as well, but the employer is being "rigid" in his wordings and I have been struggling to persuade them from day one on this issue! Lets see

Thanks nelosna! I have one more question - I have received the TN letter from the new employer, however, the employer is not willing to put the duration (3 years) in the letter indicating that it implies into a contract! Instead a start date followed by "provided that she has active TN visa" has bee...

Thanks nelsona! So, at the border when we apply for the new TN, would it matter that she would have a full time TN (present employer) along with a new Tn (full time!) with her future employer! If she gets a new TN, will the CBP take the I-94 from the old employer or we need to make it clear at the b...

My wife and I are currently Canadian citizen working on Tn and H1 visa respectively. She is looking for new prospects/opportunities and has already got an offer! Her visa at current job location expires in early 2012. I know with the new employer she would require a new TN. The question I have is - ...

Thanks, nelsona! Yes, I did file everything correctly. I had hired professional (same who run the forum) services for that year. I had also received a letter from CRA indicating that no CTB payments will be made for my daughter since we are no longer residents. I will write a letter and maybe send c...

My wife and I still hold bank accounts (mostly RRSP and RESP) in Canada. My wife however does have a savings account which generates interest income and has always bee...

Thanks! I was a little bit worried (correct word is scared) about CBP having confusions with all of us re-entering on 3 different status.
