Professional Assistance Program

This program was created to advice immigrants in diverse areas of the law, accounting and taxes. This program helps immigrants to know if they must file a tax return or not.

This program offers:

  • Legal immigration advice: IACO’s members have the right to consult lawyers specialized in immigration law about their particular cases. These consultations are free of charge.
  • Advice and assistance in taxes: any person residing in the United States who receive an income and meets certain requirements is required to file a federal tax return. IACO advices immigrants about the forms and the best way to file an income tax return. Incorrect tax returns may have immigration consequences such as loss of residency, denial of U.S. citizenship or any benefit conferred by the immigration laws.
