In 21st century the most interesting thing about a person is his/her @TaxResidency. For UK residents "non-dom status means #territorialtax! For UK doms there is #worldwidetax and #RBT. For US citizens there is #worldwidetax, @CitizenshipTax and #FATCA.…
.@TaxResidency is often confusing and often has a huge impact on ones life. In simple terms, you are a #taxresident of a country which has the right to impose the full force of its tax rules on you. This is different from HOW and on WHAT sources of income tax residents are taxed.
What income is subject to taxation: Terms like "worldwide taxation" (wherever the income is earned) and "territorial taxation" (income earned only in the country) describe HOW and ON WHAT income #taxresidents are taxed. These terms do NOT describe @TaxResidency (who is taxed).

#Tokens & #Belongingness
For the past month, I have been diving into #DAOs and crypto tokens and I wanted to share some thoughts and elicit responses from other #crypto-enthusiasts.
If you haven't heard of #DAO before, think of it as an online community run on top of Web3/Blockchain infrastructure. Typically a DAO has intentional governance protocols and a crypto token to facilitate inter- and intra- community economy.
My biggest takeaway was to think of a crypto token as a fluid representation for "#belongingness" to a #community.

Arguments linking per-country caps to maintaining diversity in America are used repeatedly. They came up yet again during the house judiciary committee hearing on 04/28, so we wanted to take some time to address it. 1/12
The thing being considered right now, is the removal of per-country caps in EB immigration. The caps apply to immigrants in this category who are ALREADY in the US and have been awaiting their turn for a green card for years! 2/12
Eliminating these per-country caps wouldn't let in any more EB immigrants into the US annually than right now. It would just make it make everyone stand in the SAME LINE for them, irrespective of their country of birth. 3/12

In 5 minutes of testimony, @David_J_Bier has managed to not just illustrate the serious gaps in legal immigration policy, but also address why things stand the way they do.

Excerpt about employer-based Green Card path from his testimony on “Why Don’t They Just Get in Line?” 🧵👇
Employers may sponsor their employees, but their employees have a hard annual numerical limit of 130,000 green cards—half of which go to the spouses and minor children of the workers. This limit was last updated in 1990.
Immigrants from a single birthplace can obtain no more than 7 percent of the green cards in a single year unless they would otherwise not be used.

💡2 ways to make a career move to Canada without PR. 🤤

1. Get a Work Permit:
Open work permits allow foreign workers to work anywhere in Canada and for any employer. This means workers don’t need to secure employment in Canada first before applying for their work permits.
Closed WP requires foreign workers to have Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA)

To help you get started, we’ve compiled lists of in-demand occupations in Canada’s 13 provinces and territories.

2. Understand Canada’s Immigration Pilots:

The Atlantic
Immigration Pilot Program (AIPP) and the Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot (RNIP) were designed for one purpose: attract foreign workers to Canada’s smaller, and less popular regions.

Foreign workers who manage to secure jobs from participating employers of the Pilots can

FAQs: How do I create a resume in order to find a job in Canada?

When applying outside Canada, it’s imperative to know that you will find a job quicker with a Canadian-style resume.

- In Canada, never use a photo on your resume. You also never state your age. It’s irrelevant.
-Adapt your resume for each role.
Generic resumes do not work you’re applying to a company that isn’t stating a current opening.

- Also, remember to use your cover letter.

- The top 5 requirements listed on the Job Ad are typically more sought after.

Ensure that your resume speaks to the top requirements in particular by highlighting your past experiences and achievements.

- Keep your resume short. 1-2 pages long if possible.

However, don't sacrifice quality details, achievements and past relevant

#S386 my understanding 1. @SenatorDurbin want no harm clause, but do not want transition period extended to 9 from 3 years, which is the practical way of ensuring #noharmclause, it will ensure #row with #ApprovedGreencardPetition will get #greencard without impact for 9 years
2. 50/50 rule for companies employing #h1b :- @SenatorDurbin wants it effective immediately, @SenMikeLee wants to provide 3 years to make this transition, immediately applying 50/50 rule will cause to job loss & deportation of #indiaborn #skilledimmigrants
Cause they r one who r forced to stay on #H1B for decades despite of having #ApprovedGreencardPetition for decade. 3 years will help most of them to get out of #h1b & rest will get AOS in meantime.

With reports that the Trump administration is barring certain foreign workers in the H1B, H2B, J1 & L1 categories from US entry, we estimate this would keep 219,000 temporary workers out
Included in these totals are the spouses and minor children who enter the U.S. as derivatives of the worker's visa
Beyond barring temporary workers applying from abroad in certain categories, the White House is extending the legal immigration ban it first unveiled in April, citing the COVID19-related job loss

Such a good panel on legal #immigration from @1a @toddzwillich @AveryJCK, w/ @Puneetkaurc (immigrant stuck in the green card backlog), @EleanorPelta (attorney) & @ahauslohner (reporter).

Includes a helpful interview with @RepZoeLofgren about #S386. 1/…
@1a @toddzwillich @AveryJCK @Puneetkaurc @EleanorPelta @ahauslohner @RepZoeLofgren @toddzwillich asks about the political economy of the #immigration system: Doesn't Big Tech get whatever it wants?

Answer from panelists: Nope!

Companies are always jonesing for more #H1B visas, but haven't gotten their way since 2000, I believe?
@1a @toddzwillich @AveryJCK @Puneetkaurc @EleanorPelta @ahauslohner @RepZoeLofgren Quick political guide:

* Temporary work visas (#H1B etc): Loved by employers; loathed by workers lashed to said employers

* Permanent residency (#GreenCard): Liked by (most) employers; loved by workers empowered to switch jobs & bargain for wages; better for US-born workers

“F-1 Visa to Green Card” written by Dr. Ozi (@PrincessAfrique) contains detailed information that will help highly skilled professionals successfully self-petition for their #GreenCard under the Employment-Based Second Preference National Interest Waiver (EB2 – NIW) category
2/without sponsors or the help of a lawyer. She and her husband Adé went directly from being international students on F-1 visa status to becoming U.S. Permanent Residents (Green Cardholders). Click on the link below to get a FREE copy of the book today.
For those on F-1 visas wanting to convert to a green card, this is a very good mechanism but you have to make sure your application is properly done. This was the similar pathway that TDawg and I used to become US permanent residents.

Winter is coming...preceded by the Fall 2018 Unified Regulatory Agenda from @DHSgov. Once again, semi-annually, it's time to see what new #immigration actions we might find buried in this list of rulemaking plans that's hiding in plain sight? 1/…
Let's start with @DHSgov proposals that didn't appear in the prior regulatory agenda this past spring. (These are all draft rules that haven't been published yet, and won't take effect for months or years, after a full public notice-and-comment process.) 2/

What is this long-anticipated #PublicCharge rule affecting #immigrants that @DHSgov announced over the weekend? I've updated this detailed explainer from @chooseboundless, and here comes a TL;DR... 1/…
Bottom line: Although the Republican-controlled Congress isn't interested in slashing legal #immigration, the Trump Administration is pursuing a workaround through a unilateral @DHSgov regulation. 2/
