Filing the Statement to be Taxed as A US Resident

Post by Mswalleye2 » Fri Feb 15, 2019 3:33 am

I happened to come across this statement on this forum.... a fellow was asking why Nelsona was suggesting to not file a statement (to treat spouse as resident) with his 1040, and he said

Your spouse is a Cdn citizen/resident, and, as such she is always allowed to file a 1040. So joining you on your 1040 is allowed.

I too am Cdn citizen/resident and was going to submit a statement with this years tax return but am now wondering ... do I need to?

Any info on this would be appreciated. tks

There is no need for the statement. File jointly as residents.
Nelsona Non grata. Non pro. Search previous posts. Happy Browsing :D
