HELP !!! NOA 1 For AOS Not Received

On December 15, 2018 my AOS was delivered to the Chicago lock box, but as of today we have still yet to receive our NOA 1. I actually called USCIS yesterday and the rep just informed me that I will need to call back on the 15th. My question is has anyone experienced this and also does the government shutting down affect our timeline?

Hey,

Is there any other way to retrieve irs transcripts at this moment? The website has been ''unavailable due to system maintenance.''?

Thanks!

How to file for 2018 tax year

I decided I'd better have a look into how to file the taxes for 2018, since I've heard so many horror stories of US tax system and of course it won't be the easiest first year.

My POE was 20th of November and I'll work (and get paid) only for about half a December. While in US, I have had income to my Estonian account as a member of board fee (so not salary), so I guess I'll need to add that. But do I also need to add the income I earned in other countries in 2018 while not US resident?

If anyone has recommendations for accountant, bookkeeper or whoever can help with that kind of stuff, I'd be very interested!

GC holder temporary work abroad

I didn't manage to find posts about other GC holders who will temporary work abroad.

For the last 2 years I have worked in New Zealand from end of June until middle of October (so like 3.5 - 4 months). My husband (USC) has been going back and forth over 8 years. Its a winter season job, so thats why he keeps going there ? As far as I have researched, if not setting up residency abroad, I should be able to continue that (we are thinking of doing 2 more years of it, and then thats it). I am starting to figure out already now how to prove that my residency is still in USA although I will be abroad temporary. If anyone has any suggestions, what other documents to get (or if its mad idea to even do that), its highly appreciated.

  • I will apply for re-entry permit
  • Big thing in my mind is that the visa that allows me to work in New Zealand will be temporary work visa. So I don't set up residency there (even if I would want to, I couldn't) and its already established when leaving to NZ that its just temporary stay
  • I plan to apply for at least 2 credit cards in USA
  • Would transfer the money we earn in NZ to our US bank account once a month
  • I will get my driving licence in USA done
  • I hope to have a car in USA in my name (or me and my husband)
  • I will buy return tickets when leaving USA
  • By the time I re-enter USA, me and my husband will have a rental agreement for a place
  • By the time I re-enter USA, I will also have either a job offer or job contract to show
  • Of course, I will file USA tax returns, I will establish also there that I am resident and I will also mark down the income from NZ and if needed, will pay taxes from what I earned

I know that probably a lot of people would want to ask, that why even go there. Its pretty much also a career movement. With the job I want to do here in US, I would hugely benefit from additional experience gained from abroad (basically I get to do 2 winter a year, while other people have just 1 winter a year) and that comes handy with my work in USA. In theory it shouldn't be a problem but... I am a overthinker and I'm always considering the worst possible income (that after 3.5 months away I will be refused entry on border and have to surrender my GC).
