U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced that it allowed an additional 30 days for public comment on the revised I-9 form. USCIS received over 6,200 comments in response to its earlier publication on March 27, 2012. Additional comments were accepted through September 21, 2012.

USCIS previously announced that employers should continue to use the current I-9 employment eligibility verification form even after the August 31, 2012, Office of Management and Budget control number expiration date passes.

The notice announcing the extension of the comment period, which includes instructions on submitting comments, is available here.

In a related note, the agency also published a notice of the opportunity for public comment under the Paperwork Reduction Act on the time required to utilize the E-Verify database, as well as versions of the E-Verify Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with enrolling employers. The E-Verify notice and MOU versions are available here (at the bottom of the linked page).
