USCIS extends COVID-19 related flexibilities and permanently allows for electronic signatures

On 25 July 2022, US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced that it is extending the flexibilities for responding to requests, notices, and decisions issued in connection with certain immigration benefits and programs. To summarize, in certain circumstances USCIS will consider a response received within 60 calendar days of the due date before taking any action on a case, thereby effectively extending the response time. This flexibility will apply if the issuance date listed on USCIS’s request, notice, or decision is between 1 March 2020 and 23 October 2022, inclusive.

A Tax Alert prepared by EY Law LLP, and attached below, provides additional details.
