    According to this page from USCIS, If you live in new jersey you were suppose to send your application to Chicago lock box then they would forward your application to Vermont. But, you can check the first two I-797C(Notice of action) letter your received from USCIS. On the bottom of each letter, it should include an address of which USCIS location responded back to your application.

    God_why_m3 reacted to itzel in Doing your taxes if you're DACA approved   
    Hi Everyone!!!
    Havent been online as often as I'd like...work and getting ready for school has kept me occupied. Approval from DACA is guarenteed to open many new doors and possibilites for all..
    Well, heres what this post is about...taxes...
    This is my first legal job ever, before DACA I worked under the table and never filed taxes...
    Well this job, every paycheck withdraws taxes...
    Ive been reading up on doing taxes and the different categories..nonresiden and resident..
    DACA didnt provide us with any type of legal status, however Publication 519, the US Tax Guide released by the IRS, categorizes us as resident aliens because of the time we've been here (page 5)..
    They even have this little table that helps you determine what to file under..
    I will be filing as a resident as indicated by Publication 519 because of the time I've been here in the US, I mean we obviously had to meet that requirement to get qualified for DACA..
    For any Android users, theres a free app called "TaxCaster" from Turbo Tax and gives you an estimate of how much you'd be getting back..its really user friendly..
    Now all I have to wait is for my W2 from my employer at the end of Jan. and get back some of those taxes...
    Heres the link to Publication 519: http://www.irs.gov/p...rs-pdf/p519.pdf
    Any questions/comments feel free to do so..we're here to help each other out and Im sure I can learn something new....

    God_why_m3 reacted to arcane in ** What to do with ITIN after receiving SSN **   
    Notify IRS about your new SSN & rescind ITIN
    Individuals who are not eligible to receive a Social Security Number (SSN) instead get an Individual Tax Payer Identification Number (ITIN).
    An alien individual can't have both an ITIN and a SSN. Therefore, once you receive your SSN (e.g., after getting an EAD), you will have to rescind your ITIN.
    After you receive your new SSN, you will have to send a letter to the IRS ITIN Unit requesting a rescind of your ITIN. The SSN will become the primary number and must be used for all future filing purposes. The IRS will void the ITIN. All prior tax information under the ITIN will be associated with the new SSN.
    Send a letter to:
    Internal Revenue Service
    ITIN Operation
    P.O. Box 149342
    Austin, TX 78714-9342
    Enclose the copies of your ITIN and SSN.
    You will then receive a letter from the IRS confirming that your ITIN was revoked and to use your new SSN for all tax purposes.

    *************************************
    How to Transfer Your Credit History to a Newly Assigned SSN
    When you are assigned a new Social Security Number (SSN), your previous credit history will not automatically transfer. Credit history is not kept by the Social Security Administration. Instead, the three major credit bureaus, Experian, TransUnion and Equifax, keep their own records of your credit history. Therefore, to transfer your credit history you will need to notify each of the credit bureaus directly and provide evidence of your claim.
    1. Contact your current lenders and inform them of your newly assigned SSN. They should begin to report your credit under your new number.
    2. Type a letter to the credit bureau, explaining that you have a new SSN. Keep the letter simple and to the point. List all previous numbers you had credit under and any previous names you used. Request that your account be listed in your new credit report.
    3.Print four copies of the letter, one for each of the three credit bureaus and one for your own records. Sign the three copies for the credit bureaus.
    4. Address one envelope to each credit bureau, affix a stamp and write your return address. The three credit bureau addresses are as follows:
    Equifax
    P.O. Box 740241
    Atlanta, GA 30374
    Experian
    P.O. Box 2002
    Allen, TX 75013
    TransUnion
    P.O. Box 1000
    Chester, PA 19022
    5. Make three copies of the document you received from the Social Security Administration informing you of your newly assigned SSN. Attach one to each letter and put each letter in an envelope. Mail the letters to the credit bureaus.
    6. Wait a month or two and request a free copy of your credit report through AnnualCreditReport.com from each credit bureau. Verify that your credit history has been transferred by each credit bureau. If it has not, call the credit bureau in question to sort out the problem.
    Equifax
    1-800-685-1111
    Experian
    1-888-397-3742
    TransUnion
    1-800-888-4213

    *******************************************************
    Notify Selective Service (males 18-25 yrs old only)
    If you are a man ages 18 through 25 and living in the U.S., then you must register with Selective Service. It’s the law. According to law, a man must register with Selective Service within 30 days of his 18th birthday. Selective Service will accept late registrations but not after a man has reached age 26. You may be denied benefits or a job if you have not registered. You can register at any U.S. Post Office and do not need a social security number.
    When you do obtain a social security number, let Selective Service know. Provide a copy of your new social security number card; being sure to include your complete name, date of birth, Selective Service registration number, and current mailing address; and mail to:
    Selective Service System
    P.O. Box 94636
    Palatine, IL 60094-4636

    *****************************
    Do not forget to contact your bank and/or any other relevant institution (school, memberships, etc.) about your new SSN.

    dont worry hun. Let's not have that mentality of getting denied, just think of just waiting to get approved. Although vermont has been slow on some approvals, just have patients. I've been in your boat waited 3 months and 2 weeks for my approval. just have a positive attitude. I have hope it will come!
    P.s welcome to the forum
