Some immigration benefits and any new legalization program will likely require eligible immigrants to pay any taxes owed. Too often immigrant community members seek tax help from the same notarios who will offer to handle their immigration case. Join us for this webinar to learn the latest tax requirements for immigrant clients, what they need to do to resolve these tax issues, and how to guide clients in the direction they need to ensure their taxes are properly paid. This training is specifically geared to help family based and removal practitioners identify tax returns that could give rise to a challenge to good moral character.
