The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced on August 27, 2009, that the federal Office of Management and Budget has approved an extension of the current Form I-9 to August 31, 2012. As a result, the USCIS has amended the Form I-9 to reflect an updated revision date of August 7, 2009. This revision date appears in the lower right hand corner of the form.

The USCIS has indicated that employers may use the Form I-9 with a revision date of either February 2, 2009 (the prior revision date) or August 7, 2009 (the current revision date). The Form I-9 is available at the following web site: www.uscis.gov/i-9.
