13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. So next year of august marks my third year here in united states. Since I am marrried to a us citizen, they told me I can file an application next year for us citizenship. Problem is, if they will be looking for my itr, which I filed as a single for itr 2013, are they going to question it? And can i still amend that? Thank you.

I have bank account statements, leases, and other proof that our marriage is not fake.

Yes, they will question it and yes, you can and should amend it. Why did you file as single ?

This.

The person who prepared our taxes said it would be better if we filed as single. Such a huge mistake. If I am going to amend it, does that mean I'm going to pay the gov't back right? Is the ITR one of the requirements? Thank you so much.

You were legally married, but you filed as "single"?

Are you sure that you didn't file as "married, filing separately"?

If you did the former, you probably need to amend your return.

If you did the latter, you don't need to end your return.

Does anyone know if the former is even legal? If you are legally married, I didn't think you could file as single, but I could be wrof.

When you amend your taxes, you'll have to pay back any additional money you owe.

If you are filing base on marriage to a US citizen, then they will look at your returns or tax transcripts.

Hi vj members. So now that we are amending my 2013 tax return found out that during the year of 2012 my mother in law claimed m daughter, me and my husband as her dependents since she was helping us financially since we came to united states august of same year. I was able to work ftom oct-dec of 2012 and mu income was only 3000 something and my status is single. Is that ok though or they will still question me? I am so confused.

Yes I think with a solid 2013 tax return, and recent paystubs you still make at least as much, you will be fine.
