First post here - grateful to find the community!
I’m considering applying for an attorney position at the CIA. I have a lot of specialized technical knowledge that would make me a unique fit.
We have employed a nanny for the last 3 years who is still waiting for her Green Card. I believe she legally entered the country but overstayed her Visa. The husband is legal (but not American). 2 great kids in public school
There are two issues that I have a concern about - but maybe others.
We had been paying her under the table. I’ve just become aware of a process that we could use to pay the back taxes. I’m aware that the SF-86 has a question that requires you to assert that you’ve paid all your taxes in the last 7 years (but also allows you to show if you didn’t that you resolved the issue). So I think I could pay the back taxes and penalties to resolve this. I’m told that IRS doesn’t share info with ICE so presumably she’s not at much risk of deportation.
Even if the taxes were paid - would our hiring someone who doesn’t yet have a green card automatically fail me on the clearance process? I’m aware that they would probably investigate her background (we did our own background check on her before hiring her to make sure she didn’t have any warrants, tickets, arrests etc)
I’m happy to resolve the tax issue but it’s not worth anyone’s time if I would get auto-rejected. Also not sure if this is covered on the SF-86, probably is my guess.
