Hello fam, I'm back here to my support system during the green card process as HRBlock and TurboTax weren't able to help. I came to the US in Jan 2016 on an F1 visa. Got a green card approved in Nov 2019. To my understanding, because I was in the US for less than 5 years ( Exempt individuals under substantial presence test (F visa) ) I was a non-resident till Nov 2019. After my approval, I'd be considered a resident for tax purposes and so need to file Dual Status Tax returns. Here's the link to the IRS site. Is this correct? How are the tax returns different (except that I file a 1040 with a 1040NR as a statement)? Is there a service you used if you were in a similar situation? Is there something I'm missing/any other considerations? Idk if this info matters but I'll be filing as a single person with no dependents and my green card was EB2. I'm nervous about tax returns because apparently DHS is super strict about tiny mistakes in them later on. Thanks in advance!
