This training is designed to help immigration practitioners understand tax issues that may affect their cases, and includes a detailed discussion of tax benefits for Haitian beneficiaries of TPS. Why do your clients file as head of household, can they file married filing separate, and who qualifies as a dependent. What tax issues might implicate the "good moral character" of your client. The second half of the training will detail refundable tax credits, such as the Earned Income Tax Credit, that can be retroactively claimed by Haitian Recipients of TPS. The training will be conducted by Samuel C. Rock, Esq., of the Rock Law Group, PLC/founder of Patriot Tax International, LLC, and Director of ITIN Business Program at Jackson Hewitt.
