Getting Married Right After Taxes on April 15th for AOS Filing as Single

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi!

My fiance and I are living together currently here in California, and she is originally from Canada. I am filing my taxes for 2018, as single. 

We are planning to get married only a few days or weeks after the 15th, meaning I will be filing as single even though when the USCIS sees it I will be married.

Does this pose an issue when we are adjusting her status and I am filing for both my taxes and for her AOS

Thanks for all the help and the responses, let me know if I need to clarify more!

No.. we married in February and I filed in late February still as single because the marriage happened in the next tax year. Even if you have until April 15th to file,l the dates involved are January 1st - Dec 31st that year so... Next year you'll file as married.
