Tax question

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

All, I have a quick question regarding filing my taxes for this year. I got married in December to a US citizen and filed for AOS. I understand I will file 1040 with him and we will declare that I will be treated as a resident for tax purposes. We had planned on using something like Turbo Tax but I run into a problem when trying to report income listed on my 1042S. Where and how should I report this income?

Thanks!

In TurboTax foreign income is reported under Less Common Income. It was well hidden before, but it's easy to spot in the main menu this year. If you are looking at the whole list of income types, rather than going through the interview, it's toward the bottom. Your UK income is whatever was earned in calendar year 2010 and is self-reported. No forms to back it up are sent in. Just figure what you earned in 2010 and convert it to US dollars. Pick your own conversion rate, but try to get it approximate to what the conversion was when the money was earned. Then just go with that US dollar amount for reporting the income and for doing the Form 2555 or 2555EZ (not in TurboTax, but easier) for the income exclusion.

YuAndDan, I don't believe you should have moved my post (please move it back for more exposure) as 1042S is a form given to me by my US employer in addition to the W-2. This form reports other income (e.g. scholarships) received by a foreign person (me) subject to witholding. This has nothing to do with being British - I have zero foreign based income.

Nich-Nick, thank you for your reply, but again, 1042S reported my additional income in the US, not from a foreign source.

1042S is usually reported in a 1040NR but since I am filing a 1040 with my US Citizen spouse, there is no longer a place for this.

BUMP...

Anyone? If anyone here has been on F-1 with assistantship and scholarship, then got married to USC and applied for AOS, someone must know how to deal with this tax question.

Did you solve your problem with 1042-S? I have the same problem. I am thinking I will just add the 1042-S income in line 7 of 1040 A and attach 1042-S with my other forms that I am mailing to IRS. Please let me know ASAP. My email is chance3349@gmail.com

On the Form 1040, there's always Line 21 Other income. List type and amount. You would write in the space "Form 1042S" and put the amount in the column for numbers.

I don't know if you can report it on a 1040A. There's only certain types of income you can report on a 1040A. If you have other types to report, you have to use the 1040.

Thank you for the reply. I just saw the reply. I was trying to figure out how to see the reply. What I did with my 1042-s income is that, I wrote SCH-550 (my sch. amount was $550) beside Wages, Salaries, Tips line in my 1040a and added that amount to my total wages from W2. Hopefully that works cause I had read other people doing that.
