Should I send them a letter?

Ok, so I've gone and done it again...

When we filed our federal return using Turbotax, there is a part where it asks you if you're a resident. It states that if your not, most people ask to be treated as one. I was reviewing our file today, and noticed that we made a mistake, and we put down that I was a resident :bonk:

I was thinking of writng a letter explaining our mistake and asking them to 'treat' me as a resident for tax purposes. Am I wasting my time, or do you suggest I do that since we made a mistake on the form?

Thanks again, and I promise I won't bother anyone with tax questions AGAIN :whistle:

You did want to be treated as a resident for tax purposes, right? Saying you were is probably fine - they'll be sure to let you know if you're not :)

As my husband just noted, you would pay less tax if they DON'T treat you as resident so you've erred on the side of more tax, ratehr then less....I doubt they'll find much fault there :)

Alright, thanks... I guess I just started freaking out thinking that we'd have a green card interview, and they would crack down on us saying like "Oh, so you think you're a resident now enh?" But that's probably me watching too much TV...

Don't think it will be a problem. When we filed the first year together I was considered a resident in the US for tax purposes and it did not come up in the GC process....you could certainly explain it easily.
