Hi 🐠, my h1b starts October 1st, and I was F1 before. My company has been withholding fica taxes since my first day in the firm. Can I ask HR to get my fica tax money (January to September) back? Has any done that before and what’s the procedure? Thank you.
Has anybody here started a company back in India while on H1B? Would be interested in knowing how you went about it.
Folks, can you give me some names of really good immigration lawyers in the US for H1B and employment-based GC? My boss asked me to give them names as I'm advocating to change the current lawyer (Fragomen) after they made stupid mistakes on my petition. Thanks!

My h1b extension just got RFE but it is so odd because USCIS asked us to provide more information on a J1 visa but I never had any J1 visa in the past. The lawyer is confused as well because we never mistakenly wrote J1 anywhere. Is this a freak case where USCIS just made a mistake of mixing up my case with someone else?
