I am looking into filing the extension on IRS. There are two forms, one is 4868 and the other one is 2350. I think for filing married jointly, my husband needs to file 4868 and myself file 2350. is this corrected, please confirm, thanks!

Thank you Nelsona for your reply. We are not expecting a big refund, so will go for filing an extension. Do you know how long will take IRS to approve our extension once we file it?

Last year, I only lived and worked for three months in Canada. 9 months in US, unemployed. Can my Canadian earned income still be excluded from US tax return? Just wondering, do I have enough physical present in Canada for doing so?

English is my 2nd language, I know sometime, I read into things too much. Perhaps it is a stupid question, I thought might get some clarification from people here. Guess what? I just passed my US citizenship exam and interview, now waiting for taking the oath! Only took two days to study.
