I can't find a thread that gives me any answerswacko.gif

My husband has a simple return..... and we are trying to avoid paying tax prep person to do this ( not sure if I can find one here in my backwards town that knows how to do Canadian taxes)...

Just need to know how he has to claim me.... USC spouse with only US income.

He came here on a K-1 last year, we got married and had his AOS approved last year.

I saw online for Turbo Tax where it asked if you were living in US and having to submit your taxes. You could try there.

It will around 35.00

No he does not have to claim your income. In Canada everyone files an individual return (not like in the US where you can file married filing jointly) so he only has to be concerned with his individual income.

Since it is an international filing he will have to mail it in....he can not e-file. He can have direct deposit set up if he still has a Canadian bank account, but it can not be set up with a US bank. The international office also is not very fast. I guess since we are no longer residents we are not a big priority. Last year I didn't get my return until Mid-September and I filed mid-march, so don't count on the money anytime soon!

We have to file an extension for my husbands taxes, since my SSN is all messed up :( So, my husband needs to declare my income from last year in Canada then? Even though I wasn't living here? Won't that mean I am getting taxed twice? He is filing using H&R Block home software (once my SSN is fixed). I will have to wait for my Canadian return if he does because my T4 is away with that at the moment.

He will have to report your income on his taxes (If you are filing married filing jointly), but you will not be taxed twice since Canada and the US have a tax treaty. There is a form that he will have to fill out for tax credits, which will take into account the taxes that you paid in Canada on your income.
