arrowRequirements for filing joint tax return with no SSN or ITIN - Pending AOS

I am a US Citizen and my husband is a non-resident. We both live in the US. His AOS is currently pending.


We would like to file our taxes as MFJ (he is a US resident for 2014 tax purposes), but he does not have a SSN yet since his Green Card is still pending. I read that we can go ahead and apply for an ITIN number and use that to file our taxes, however, I also was told that you cannot apply for an ITIN unless you have a denial letter from the Social Security office stating that he is not eligible for a SSN. Is there any way that we can go ahead and file for our tax return without a SSN or ITIN? What should we do? 


Thank you!

Came to the U.S. in December on K1 visa. Got married. Was planning on file the next form to adjust my status until we found out we are now needs of navy and because my husband is an e5 and the e5 shortages overseas, it's likely we will be moved overseas.

How will this work while i adjust my status?

So annoyed right now.

arrowExpediting EAD/AP Card due to Job Offer

So the good news is, I had a job interview on Friday and was offered a great job, with full benefits, decent salary and commission structure, travel etc in the industry I used to work in my home country (except with WAY more opportunities).  They've given me a job offer letter, that states that they want me to start tomorrow (obviously not going to happen and they know it).  Have got an infopass meeting scheduled for Feb 11 (the earliest I could get). 


Anyone had any experience with this, can fill me in on the process - what I can expect, what I need to provide etc. I have my suspicions that my EAD might get approved around the same date, but want to show my prospective employer that I'm doing everything in my power to be ready to work ASAP. Also is the EAD approved on the spot at the meeting, and can you work straight away if approved, or would you still have to wait.

arrowVisa Denial on Record - ESTA Visa Waiver Approved

Hi all, 

Im travelling to the Dallas this Thursday on a Visa waiver (Im a New Zealand citizen). My ESTA Visa waiver was approved but I heard its really the customs officers that approve to let you in or not.

My question is - last year I was denied for a J1 because of not enough ties to bring me back home, but then 2 weeks after my denial, I went for my 2nd interview for a J1 and was approved.


I left USA when my visa expired last year in June. Now I am coming back for a 2 week vacation to visit my boyfriend for valentines. 
Does anyone know if I will be detained for questioning or what the process is because I have that previous record denial (even though I was approved 2 weeks later) ??? Will they give me a hard time when I tell them I am visiting my boyfriend ? 

All I need is a return ticket to prove I am leaving the country right? Anything else?
