New I-9 Form For Federal Employment Verification

August 2017

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has issued a revised Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification. Until September 18, 2017, dealers may use either the new form (7/17/17N) or the one marked “11/14/16N”. After September 18, 2017, dealers must use the new form (7/17/17N). Employers must complete a Form I-9 for all newly hired employees to verify their identity and authorization to work in the United States.

The I-9 form:

• requires new hire employees to distinguish between a representation of U.S. citizenship or non-citizen nationality;

• reduces the number of acceptable identification documents; and

• prohibits the use of some expired documents to demonstrate citizenship or identity.

The new I-9 form and additional information on acceptable employment verification documents is available on the USCIS website at
