Q. How do I make corrections to a Form I-9, especially when too many documents are indicated on the form? A previous employer completed the forms. Also, is there guidance on how to do I-9 self-audits? — Rav, Maryland
A. Generally speaking, to correct or update a Form I-9, the employer strikes through the expired or incorrect information, then initials and dates the correction. If your form contains too much information, it would make sense to strike through all of it except for the information that expires last (assuming there is an expiration date).
You should also make a note that you conducted a self-audit. Find a Q&A on completing I-9 self-audits by visiting the USCIS website and typing “self audits” into the search box.
