Responsibilities of a Permanent Resident of the United States
It is very important for new residents of the United States to understand their responsibilities as a permanent resident. You must make sure to:
Obey all federal, state, and local laws.
Carry proof of your permanent resident status at all times.
File your federal, state, and local income taxes.
If you are a male between the ages of 18 and 26 years old, register with the Selective Service System (https://www.sss.gov/Registration-Info/Who-Registration).
Give the Department of Homeland Security your new address within ten days after you move (https://www.uscis.gov/addresschange).
Maintain your immigration status by maintaining your residence in the United States (i.e. don’t be absent for more than 12 months and don’t move to another country) or apply for a re-entry permit (https://www.uscis.gov/green-card/after-green-card-granted/maintaining-permanent-residence).
