Tax question

Hello 

Please I have question regarding what to do when filling my 2019 taxes. 

My fiance just got her K1 visa and she will be entering the states on Feb 1st 2020.

I will be filling my taxes also on 20 February 

I am wondering what to do since we are not yet married and she doesn't have her SSN yet

Should I wait for us to get married and filled jointly or fill as single. 

Thanks

If you were not married as of Dec 31, 2019, you cannot file as married for tax year 2019.....you will have to file as single or HOH (if it applies to you)

For example single Moms/Dads raising kids with no support often qualify for a tax break as Head of Household that single filing doesn’t have.

I have a 2 yrs daughter and I will be claiming her in my taxes... does that make me qualified as HOH?

Though I am not raising her alone but with her mom

Generally YES.   After I was divorced our agreement was that I would claim my son every third year.   Every third year I was HOH.

Thanks, so since I'm claiming her for 2019, I should be qualified as HOH

You should read the details straight from the IRS. Did the child live in your home with you more than half the year? 
Go to irs.gov and use the search box.

 

Another question... your work was in Spain? Did you take the Foreign Income Exclusion?
