Help for my USC's accountant - TAXES

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hiya.

My interview is in 6 weeks in Montreal.

My (American) husband's accountant convinced him to file as single for some reason (I wasn't there; something to do with a late name change UGH), and I've got him feverishly working on amendment. He has no idea really how to file my husband as married since I don't have a SSN or an ITN (?)?

Help? Any quick solve for this that you're aware of?

Thanks!

Hello

I'm the beneficiary, maybe some USC may help you better. I know my husband (the USC) filled as "married filling separately", so he didn't need my SSN or ITN (because I dont have it) but he had to send in the paper return the first year (we both live in Brazil). I've seen other people doing the same.

Hope his can help, but better be confirmed by a USC or somebody who can understand UStaxes better than me :)

Good luck on your interview!! Your almost there!

you can fill out a w7 form and file it with your amended tax return. You would leave your SSN blank on the 1040 tax form. You will need to send the amended form to a different address than normal. that address is as follows:

Internal Revenue Service

ITIN Operation

P.O. Box 149342

Austin Tx 78714

He can amend the tax return to married as separate, he can put NRA (none resident alien ) for your social security or tax id number

when you are in the states you can see if filing jointly will get you bigger refund, if it does, I think you can amend the return again ( I am not sure how many times you can amend a return) to filing jointly once you get a social security or tax id number here

to use the w-7 form she will need to send a copy of her passport

The easiest way is to amend the tax form to married filing separate and write in NRA for social security or tax ID number

Hi,

Your husband needs to fire his accountant. Major fail if he doesn't know how to file married on behalf of your husband. It's pretty simple for a 1st year accounting student.

Married filing separately- foreign spouse has no ITIN or SSN. Pretty simple to check this box instead of the single box.

Married filing jointly- foreign spouse must have an ITIN or SSN.

Your husband can file married filing separately by checking the box on his tax return. Once you are here with either an ITIN or SSN, you can amend the tax return to file married filing jointly.

Best of luck
