Hi there! I have a tax question… this is my 6th year and I got h1b in October. However I should be considered as a resident for tax purpose in 2021 correct? My company didn’t start to deduct fica until October. Should I pay all year of fica? Also, if I have enough tax withholding that could cover my fica is it ok?
Hoping to have parents visit US next year . Currently they have a visa that will expire on April 1 and they would ideally want to avoid the winter. That said, does anyone know how long extensions are taking (as in appointment availability?). Thanks
I am on an h1b in city A and I found another job in a city B. In terms of providing documents to the new employer for the h1transfer, will it be a problem if I do not have an address in city B as yet? What are my options? I was thinking I would find an apartment while my transfer petition is being processed. Anyone that can relate to this?

Friends - Is any company hiring? Considering H1B transfer? I have total only 28 months left on my visa? Doesn’t look like the firm is going to sponsor green card. I have been performing well in my department no negative reviews in 4 years yet HR denied to file GC. Apparently they are only considering Managers for GC. Is this the same situation in Big 4 Audit? Please comment.
With an approved I-140, can H1B extension be filed with Premium processing? If yes, any EY fish know if EY pays for it?
I’m looking for an opportunity in either Berlin, Copenhagen, Amsterdam, or London. Since my current responsibilities are Customer Service Ops and service/product improvement, ideal role would be Customer Experience related jobs. Personally, I’m eager to pivot my career and explore product management as well. I’m married to a person from Scandinavia, so I may be able to prepare for work visa by my own. If you have any recommendations or referrals, please reach me out! Thanks a million in advance!
I applied for H1B in September but still haven’t received my EAD card. My 60 days are almost up. Is anyone in a similar situation or know how to handle it?
Hi all - I am looking to move into the world of brand strategy consulting (KPMG has customer consulting division but brand and marketing aren't that strong. Also KPMG UK is the only one of big 4 that has not bought an agency!!). Wanted to hear some advice on the options: go to a boutique (like Lippincott, Prophet) or brand agency? The salary cut for agency is huge though. Are there other options?

Anyone tried or have a Tonal? Thoughts? How are the class? Do you feel fitter after using it? How long are workouts? How often are you using it? Is it addictive and fun like peloton? We have a peloton, which we love, but aren't disciplined enough use it consistently. Need to get back into the fitness game now that the pandemic is over. Like the gym / classes, but the time saving aspect of at home workouts is great and better for us right now with baby. Might get this as gift for hubby.
