Immigration Issues/H1b stamping


Currently I am working in Inida and my company is filed H1B for me and I have that approoval with me now. But I never stamped based on that H1 ( I have to go for stamping interview)

But from my previous company i had L1 visa and i worked in USA 4 months ( 2008) and compay paid per dieam and also complete indian salary. I dont have SSN also.

Now I want to go for h1b stamping. Will Visa officer will ask for L1 Tax papers document and SSN details  ?  Will it impact my h1b Stamping

I appreciate your replies on this.

They might, maybe not; but you must be prepared to answer all their questions like, you never applied for SSN. Also, even if paid in Indian currency you must have filed tax returns accordingly - if not, there must be a cogent explanation for that.

Best wishes,
