This is a long shot but wondering if anyone has experienced this. I just changed to H1B status last Oct and my bank mailed me recently after tax filing deadline (I have filed tax in time using H&R block) asking me to fill out W9 if I am a resident alien / another form if I am not. This has never happened in previous years. Does it mean I missed a form using H&R block or is it related to the status change…?

I don’t think it necessarily means that you missed a form using H&R Block. In my experience, every 3 years or so, or if I’ve made any substantial changes to my account/info, my bank requires that I fill out a new W8 (I’m on an H1B) so that they can determine the appropriate tax withholding amounts on interest accrued etc.

Very interesting! Thank you so much for sharing

Just fill out W9 so there’s no withholding in the future. You are on H1b so you are resident alien

I am on my 3rd H1B company and joined recently. The current employer is someone whom I have worked for before. If I get a better offer in the upcoming months, I would take it. I am concerned that the current one wouldn’t give me a customized Employment Verification Letter. I would need to get it from a common company template. How important it is to have a customized EVL and signature of the manager?
