I came here Oct 29th 2016 on K1 visa and currently on the greencard process. I have not worked in US since i dont have my EAD yet but i have my SSN since Nov 8th 2016. I did not have a job back in my country neither nor a bank account with money. We filed married jointly with Turbotax but i see that we need to write a statement for me to be treated as a resident alien. Is there an example i can look at ? Thank you!

I copied mine from a site, ofc filing address will be different.

 

First year election statement

 

Date xx/xx/2017

 

 

 

 

Filing address

Austin, TX  73301-0002
Internal Revenue Service
Department of the Treasury

 

 

 

 

 

To Whom It May Concern,

 

 

In the tax year 2016, I was a non-resident for tax purposes but was married to a U.S. citizen.
My spouse and I therefore choose for me to be treated as U.S. resident for the entire tax year of 2016.
