The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) recently issued a new I-9 Form containing a revision date of “06/16/08” at the lower right corner of the form and an expiration date of 06/30/09 at the upper right corner of the form.  There is no substantive change between the old I-9 Form and the new I-9 Form, the form simply bears a new revision and expiration date.

The I-9 Form contains a control number (the expiration date) used by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) which must be in compliance with the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA).   Technically, if the OMB uses an expired form, a person cannot be penalized for failing to comply with the expired form.  The previous I-9 Form was set to expire 6/30/08.  Thus, this new I-9 Form was necessary to ensure that the Department of Homeland Security could enforce sanctions for non-compliance.

The new version of the I-9 can be found at: www.uscis.gov/files/form/I-9.pdf.
