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.

I saw that they were doing that to me and called our payroll support number. They fixed it by reimbursing the money they took out for FICA in my next paycheck.

Just do it when you file taxes. No need to mess with your visa.

Hey, once it is deducted, you'll have to reclaim next year through tax returns. Remember to file 1040NR.

Thank you!

You may not be eligible for the tax software provided by your university for F1 students anymore. At least three years ago, TurboTax etc didn't allow filing as NR as your last day in 2020 is H1B. So I had to get an accountant to do it.

For H1B jobseekers: my transfer application was approved when filed within 60 days from severance rather than 60 days from termination date. Just my experience, may not work for all. Good luck to everyone job searching in such difficult times.
