H-1B employers who received TARP funds are considered H-1B dependant employers. Currently, those employers who received TARP funds must answer the question “yes” on the H-1B Data Collection and Filing Fee Exemption Supplement. USCIS understands that some businesses who received covered funding have now repaid their obligations. Those businesses should now check “no” to question A.1.d. as to whether they received TARP funding. In the event where the employer was dependant at the time the LCA was filed, but has repaid the obligations by the time the actual H-1B petition is filed, the employer should attach an explanation to the supplement.
