Pay check more than LCA wage

Recommended Posts


I came across a situation where employer received  call from IRS as he is running pay check more than LCA wage for one of his employee. Does IRS call employer to verify why he is running  more than LCA. How does IRS knows LCA wage of H1b as it is different department. If there is a increase in pay scale who is working in same job with no change in job duties and location does he need to file amendment or new LCA. If new LCA is sufficient how can we determine that. Is there any limit that pay check can not increase certain amount of LCA.

 Appreciate your reply.

Appreciate every ones reply. 

Even I asked same question question how does IRS know about my LCA. His argument is they might be knowing using SAVE database. 

How much is the maximum variance can we have between LCA and Wage.

There is not rule for it, but I would say 10-15% (if you get 5% hike per year for 3 years) will be reasonably allowed.
