DETHLOFF & ASOOCIATES BLOG - MOSTLY (BUT NOT ALL) TAX
Scammers are targeting employers by asking that copies of employee's I-9 forms be emailed to a phony U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) email address.
Employers must have an I-9 form on file for every employee. The I-9 form contains information that would be very valuable to identity theft criminals. There is no requirement to send these forms to USCIS. Any email requests for the forms can safely be ignored. Do not click on any links in these emails.
You can find more information about how long you need to retain I-9 forms and other questions at the USCIS web site.
