How can I prevent my I-485 application from getting impacted by any overdue tax issues?

I am on F-1 and about to file I-485. I have had on/off-campus jobs in the past on CPT, but I am not sure if I paid taxes correctly. Is it something that will impact my application down the road? How can I prevent that?

Talk to a CPA and get the taxes straightened out.

One thing to do is to let your accountant review your previous tax filings and if there is anything wrong, you can file an amendment to your previous tax returns. As long as you will not become a public charge, your I-485 should not be affected by how much tax you pay.

Generally, CIS does not require one to prove that they have paid all of their taxes to be granted adjustment of status.
