        Well, we are not licensed to answer tax questions. But if you are paid, it is commonsense to pay your taxes. This section of the law is very interesting for people who falls out of status when their H1B are inadvertently terminated and they are not aware of and move to another job. It is important to note it is an aggregate. This means that the it does not have to be continuous. You can be 60 days in one time and another 120 days for example. More than this you will not be allowed to file for adjustment of status or obtain a permanent residence.
