Hello,

Thank you soo much for all ur input thus far. really do appreciate ur support always.

I have a quick question. My wife is about to file her taxes for last year. Do u think it would help me in any way if she includes me as a dependant under her taxes or how does it work. I just got in to the US on a CR1 visa.

Would appreciate ur invaluable response. God bless u

Not likely because a spouse is not a Dependant.

A spouse is a spouse and you file married joint or married separate.

You should either file jointly as married or separately as married. I take it you do not have any income yet, so Filing jointly as married is your advisable option. Your spouse is not your dependant.

:thumbs: correct.


May love and laughter light your days,
and warm your heart and home.
May good and faithful friends be yours,
wherever you may roam.
May peace and plenty bless your world
with joy that long endures.
May all life's passing seasons
bring the best to you and yours!

Hubby just came into the country as well. Will be married joint filling as we got married in 2010. You get a better refund when you file married.

Yes, but to file jointly, don't they need an SSN for your spouse? What if your spouse doesn't arrive until after you filed your taxes but you got married in 2010?

My husband is here on a B1/B2 visa (I-130 being processed). Can I file with the W7 for him too? I haven't ever heard of one. Or ITIN... thoughts for where I can find info on this?

Many thanks!

Okay, found the forms. Next question... does he count as not eligible for a SSN? Because he will eventually be eligible, assuming all goes well with the immigration process. But since he's here on a B1/B2 does that make the ITIN necessary?

many thanks...

So sorry I didn't see your reply sooner! I guess I don't have the notification setting on here on VJ.

So long as you are a citizen or permanent resident, you can file jointly with your spouse who is not a permanent resident or citizen...meaning he is a nonresident.

If you are filing taxes for the year that passed, 2010, and your spouse wasn't considered a resident on the 31st of December, then you can still put him down as a nonresident treated as resident regardless if he will get a SSN tomorrow or not.

Best regards,

Eric and Nino

In summary, these questions are best answered by a professional, right? Everyone's situation might vary from someone elses and tax laws are very complicated. It's ok to ask for advice here and offer advice here but unless the responder is a tax pro, it's best to double-check the advice you receive with a tax-preparer/accountant.
