Hello guys,

I need your opinions, Im about to send my wife AOS and my status on the transcrip says single, now i have no idea that i could apply for itin # for her but is all too late right now, is it OK to send an attachment letter explaning why my status says single and get it notorize? this is an honest ignorant mistake.

please let me know your thought.

Thanks a lot

What you can do now is amend your taxes. The following information is for others who may read this, and run into your situation (whether by accident or don't understand what to choose on the tax form). The tax form has an option to file taxes as married filing separately if your spouse does not have a ITIN or SSN.

You may also want to talk to an accountant before you do anything, there is a substantial financial difference for most couples that file married/separately compared to married/jointly. You may want to wait wait until your wife gets a SSN before amending the taxes, for us the difference was $4,000. I'm not sure what affect that will have on your AOS however. This is speculation on my part, but maybe you could get a notarized letter from an accountant stating the mistake and that you are in the process of amending your taxes. Perhaps your accountant can file for an extension on your amendment until your wife gets her SSN.

i know there is an amendment but there is no time to do that, i need to send the AOS as quickly as posible, I called irs and they said the only way to do that is to apply an itin # for her and it takes forever.

Thank you

Send it in with the notarized letter from an accountant stating that it was a mistake and you are in the process of amending your taxes, it should be sufficient. The tax returns are more for financial proof than they are proof of marriage.
