Hello,

 

I am on TN visa and would like to know that can i become partner / shareholder in a S CORP in which major shareholder is a US Citizen.

 

Can I have share  ratio  of 50:50  for dividend purpose ?

Can I get a TN from this firm and run my W2 from this S CORP ? 

I am not sole owner in this firm.

 

As per the law "

  • An individual cannot obtain TN visa status for a company that he/she solely owns. 8 CFR § 214.6 (b). An individual also cannot obtain TN visa status for a company in which he/she is the controlling shareholder. Id.

 

My green card is also filed by another firm which runs my W2.

 

Thanks

Mike
