When two U.S. citizens get married, their tax situation changes. When a U.S. citizen marries a non-citizen, their tax situation gets incredibly complex. Leer en español.
If you married a non-citizen, you have to start by determining whether you have a valid marriage for tax purposes.
Then, if you have a valid marriage, you must decide on a filing status. If you think “married, of course,” then you have a surprise coming. You can choose married filing separately, married filing separately with an exemption, married filing jointly or head of household.
And once you determine those two things, you have to actually complete the tax return!
You don’t have to sort this out alone. In fact, we have a special group of experts at H&R Block who are used to dealing with complex international issues. Set up a free consultation at Expats.hrblock.com.
