Not sure which forum to post this in, so moderators feel free to move it...

I did my POE November 30. We will be married next week.

In the past year (including this past month) I have spent about 7 months visiting the U.S. Would my fiance be able to include me as a dependent on his taxes, or do we have to be married and after I adjust to permanent resident status? My fiance's tax guy told him I have to be a U.S. citizen, but I wasn't sure if he was correct.

If anyone could point me to another forum where there might be more info about this, I would appreciate it.

Interesting question - I don't think your fiance can claim you as dependent for 2010 since you weren't a legal resident of the US, just visiting - I'm not sure you have to be married for him to claim you or be a US citizen though. My husband was able to claim me the first year - mind you I arrived in Nov and we got married that same Nov. I most certainly was not a US citizen at the time of course.

Your husband's tax guy is misinformed - you still have 3 yrs until citizenship and your husband can most certainly claim you in the next couple years.

We filed a joint return for 2009 all they needed was my T4 from canada, my SSN and any other canadian income evidence that I had (I had stocks in canada had to be claimed). My husband got back a bigger return!

Had you married in 2010, he could have filed jointly with you and had a tax advantage on his 2010 income tax. You would not have to have a greencard or even EAD to file jointly with a USC spouse. Now he will file "single" for 2010 and jointlty with you a year from now
