I am a legal F1 student planning to file TPS and TPS EAD. When I get the TPS status I want to work to fund my own education . I heard I can qualify for instate tuition in some states if I have a TPS and become a domicile. My question is, will I be able to be a domicile if I have TPS and work in that state for one year paying taxes and eventually qualify for in state tuition?
Whether a particular State considers you domiciled there for purposes of State tuition and other State benefits if you have TPS is something decided by the particular State. You should investigate this with authorities in the State where you will live and study.
