Hi all, two tax related questions, if you could help, I would very highly appreciated.

1. I filed 2014 income tax in April as single, but am married since Feb 2015...this should be ok, right ?

2. in 2014 I was on F-1 Visa, I had part time CPT and then later OPT....after graduation I was shortly back in my home country and made income of around 500$..when I wanted to file taxes in April this year, the software I used said, that this is not needed to be filed, but now I heard it has to be.

If that was true, what would be the consequences be for me not having filed this income ? It is filed in my home country, by the way. I was planning on traveling to my home country next week first time as permanent resident, but if I made a mistake with taxes, maybe I shouldn't in order not to jeopardize my status ??? :-(

Whats the best course of action here.

Super worried here, any help would be highly appreciated..:-(

1. If you were single on the last day of 2014, then you file taxes as single. In April of this year, you were reporting on 2014 before your marriage.

2. I don't really understand the question. Are you concerned that you did not report $500 earned out of the US? The consequences if you filed again and owed more tax than you paid, is the IRS charges interest on what you owe since April 15. As far as your planned trip, immigration doesn't know if you filed your taxes correctly. The IRS actually has no way of knowing you earned an extra $500 unless you tell them. So if the concern is a trip next week, you will be fine. If you want to sort out your taxes later, you may. I don't know your situation enough to know if your tax return was correct or not.
