On August 13, 2012, the USCIS  announced employers should continue using the current I-9 form version even though the I-9 form's expiration date is August 31, 2012. Employers should use the
current version of Form I-9, but the USCIS instructions for the Form I-9 state that the agency also accepts the prior version of the Form I-9, which bears a  revision date of February 2, 2009.
