Income tax rate with a green card

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, I dont know if this is the right space for this topic. Apologies if not.

I was wondering about income tax rates after changing status to a green card. Me and my wife plan to file jointly once we get the green card. What are the rates for us? Is there a definitive document that I can refer to about taxes while on a green card? I tried navigating the IRS website but it gave me a headache. Thanks for your replies!

I do not believe there is a different "tax rate" for a gc. It would be for "married filing jointly". As long as you have a valid SSN and a valid gc, the IRS would only care about single or married.

The nominal tax rates are the same whether you are a citizen, legal permanent resident, illegal alien, married, single, divorced, etc., etc., etc.

What changes is the level of income the tax rates apply when you file as married joint/married separate/single/head of household, as well as thresholds for certain deductions, exclusions and exemptions.

Residency status only comes into play when determining eligibility for things like qualified dependent, etc.
