Tax filing while AOS in process and working with EAD

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello All;

Tax discussions are always very complicated where ever you go. I started working for a company soon after i got my EAD. I was shocked to see a massive deduction of tax on my first pay check (since i was in Dubai and its no tax there). Now when the year is ending we will be filing tax. my question is, Should i be filling taxes jointly with my USC wife as Married filing taxes jointly? or married filing taxes seperately? Which one will be good in to file in terms of tax returns?

Looking forward to hear from you.
