What's missing from the list below? All the online resources seem devoted to immigration requirements. Regardless of how you came to live in the USA, what are subsequent required actions that essentially every resident must deal with? (If it's not detailed on this list, you'll probably never be concerned with it, eg, gun registration laws and other situations that don't apply to most residents. ) Even if you obey all state and federal laws and therefore are otherwise left alone, these are items essentially everyone still gets poked with regularly:
- If I'm a paid employee, I must contribute a portion of each paycheck to Medicare, Social Security, and federal tax withholding.
- I must file a federal income tax statement each year or meet required exceptions.
- If I'm not a citizen, I must get a visa or green card.
- If a male citizen, I must register for the draft at age 18.
- I must reply to inquires by the Census Bureau.
- In most states, if I'm a paid employee, I must contribute a portion of each paycheck to worker disability insurance and state tax withholding.
