Hi,

 

I am filing taxes for the first time (jointly). I arrived on a K1 visa and got married in Jan. 

I got my Green card in May 2019. 

 

I can see all over the news that its really important to put ?immigrant? on the forms. 

Where are those fields exactly? Where I should pay attention and what do I have to write exactly?

 

Thanks,

Daniel

Your timeline shows you filed for adjustment of status in Nov 2018... technically you were able to file jointly for tax year 2018 (filed in 2019). If you didn't I can only assume you must have been better off not filing jointly for some reason.

 

The tax forms have no field to indicate immigration status at all. If you've lived together with your spouse all of 2019 then you are eligible to file married filing jointly (MFJ).

I did not file for 2018 because I had no income at all and tbh we were not thinking about it really.

 

And the new laws i am referring to: https://www.nbc-2.com/story/41563323/new-green-card-laws-2020

 

The new green card rules for 2020 include:

 
- Failing to admit you’re an immigrant on your tax returns or failing to report some of your income could get you deported

If it’s a new rule in 2020, then it won’t effect 2019 tax returns as its 2019 for the previous year. There are no legal status questions or citizenship related questions on the current 2019 IRS form 1040.
