N400 + Taxes Question

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Asking this on behalf of a friend of mine who wants to file the N400 this year.

He has five years of residency.

However, this past year he was a full time student with no income.

1. Should he still file a tax return even though his income is zero?

2. What, if any, documentation would he need to show he did meet the tax requirements for this past year?

If I remember correctly, IRS does require individuals to file for tax returns even if they did not have any income.

Once he/she files, your friend can send it with a letter explaination stating there was no income.

Hope that helps.

He had no tax taken out, thus he couldn't get anything back by filing.

You aren't required to file a tax return under certain circumstances. (which he falls under.)

There's nothing in there about permanent residents, which was why I was asking if there's anything specific for them requiring them to file. I think the letter attached to the n400 sounds like the best idea.

Thank you all!

As far the permanent resident I think IRS does not differentiate between Citizens and LPR.

I pay taxes just like my wife.

Thanks for correcting me aboive, I appreciate it :)

There are certain types of credits that you can get some money back even if you haven't paid any into it. Like the 'American Opportunity Credit' for education. My friend doesn't qualify for any of these (we already went through tax prep software and such which would find that sort of credit). Those are the only exceptions that I know of.
