🐟 on H1B.. is it okay to rent out the apartment through Airbnb? Has anyone tried it? How does it work for taxes?

Yes, you can so long as you don’t make a profit (income) through that. This is of course easier to do for rental properties vs mortgage.

Wouldn't Air BnB income and profit be fine as it is not considered employment income ? Just like being on an H1B doesn't prevent you from investing in US securities and making a profit.. trying to understand if there's any other legal issue in play here

SC1 - investments in the market are considered to be passive vs. in Airbnb you are actively managing the business of renting apartments

Hi there! Hoping to go to law school for immigration law next Fall.

Is switching areas of focus like that easy to do? Has anyone ever experienced something like this?

Hi friends,
I’m in a bit of a dilemma, and was hoping for some feedback here. I am a Canadian citizen, and have been living and working in the US since 2017 on an L1A visa. I decided to pursue a GC about a year ago, and my company approved the process. Our immigration attorneys were far from helpful, and my case didn’t get very far. Fast forward a year, our company has been acquired, and my GC case has now been transferred to a new legal team. The process is basically restarting from scratch.
