Friend re-applying for J1, worried about taxes and 2 year home requirement

Hi, I'm posting this question on behalf of a friend. She hasn't asked for help but she seems worried and I was hoping to be able to ease her mind a bit.

From 2011 to 2013 my friend from England was an Au Pair. She was a subject to the 2 year home requirement. She has now been asked by her former host family to come back to the states as their Au Pair and I have two questions:

1) Her second year she did not pay taxes, will she have to pay them now before being able to get a visa?

2) Just to be clear, days spent outside of England does not count towards her two year requirement correct? I know she recently took a trip to the states and she has also been to South Africa since her Au Pair days.

Thank you so much for your help!

2YHRR doesn't matter for a second J1. In fact, she might be subjected to a fresh 2YHRR.

No. You're talking about a different thing, the 12/24 month bar, but I think that's only for research scholars.

Au Pair are not normally subject to HRR.

Is she shure?


“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

That's what she is telling me. Though I did google that sometimes they makes mistakes. I will ask her to double check both her Visa and her DS whatever the number was.
