SSNs are for life, so if he has a SSN use that to file your taxes and consider yourself lucky that he does have a SSN and does not need to file for an ITIN. The only other question is whether to claim him as a legal resident for tax purposes or not. That one is up to you to decided based on income and tax consquences. Please read the IRS information carefully.

Is his SSN issued by US? If so, he can use it. Otherwise he has to apply for ITIN.

actually, if you include a letter with the 1040 paper submittal (no-efiling for you this time)

that clearly states the two of you are ELECTING for your spouse to be treated as a resident alien for tax purposes,

you CAN use his SSN in the tax paperwork.

The letter must be signed by both of you.

Good Luck !


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !
Ya know, you can find the answer to your question with the advanced search tool, when using a PC? Ditch the handphone, come back later on a PC, and try again.

Hi and thank you for your response, let me just understand you, write a letter that goes along with my 1040 simply stating that we would like for my spouse to be treated as a residential alien for taxe purposes, just state that and we both sign the letter and take it straight to the IRS , do I include his SSN along with this letter. Thank you again for your response Darnell.
