Does Green Card issue mean residence in the US?

Post by butlertl » Sat Feb 18, 2006 11:23 am

I married my Canadian wife last February in Florida. She returned to Canada and we started the CR-1 process. She received her green card at the end of Oct 2005.......and moved to the US on 27 Dec 2005. When did she become a resident of the US.....with her green card or during her move in December. She returned to Canada in January for family obligations and to finish up some projects at her old job. Can we use the January date for residence? This all has tax implications that I am trying to sort thru................Thank you for your help and advice.

This question is more appropriately posted on the tax forum.
