We have updated our resources regarding taxes for J-1 Trainee and Intern participants. We cannot legally provide you with tax advice or endorse services from tax accountants. This page provides links to and descriptions of resources located on the IRS website (www.irs.gov). If you have Tax Law Questions, you should contact the IRS directly as your primary source of information:
Once our interview slots are filled for the month, we will not be able to approve any more applications for J-1 visa sponsorship during that month or issue new DS 2019 forms to applicants who have not passed the webcam interview phase of the application procedure.
As always, we recommend that you schedule the webcam interviewat least 4 weeks in advance of the program start date, to allow sufficient time for consular processing and international travel.
In order to provide ample time for our Program Specialists to review the documents and respond with questions or concerns, please submit the completed application no later than 5 business days prior to the webcam interview. Not doing so will likely result in delays in approving the application and issuing form DS 2019. We cannot interview candidates for whom we have not received a completed application. If the completed application is not submitted at least 5 business days before the scheduled interview, we will release the time slot and the interview will need to be rescheduled.
Thank you as always for choosing the American Immigration Council for your J-1 applicants!
