  1. Thank you so much for this information!
  2. Thank you for all your responses! very helpful! If a return is efiled before due date but accepted after due date, will it consider a late filing? Also, if the efile is initiated before due date but ends up being rejected after due date, is there any remedy to avoid being considered late? Thank you!
  3. It has been two days since the efile transmitted. Does anyone have experience with efiling a Kentucky nonresident return? Does it take long usually? Thanks.
  4. Can anyone help explain how to treat 1250 gain in NJ 1040? The default treatment by ATX software is ignore the addition of such gain to income. Does anyone have experience on this? Thank you so much!
  5. partnership filed composite return for the partner and paid some tax to one state. But based on the K-1, if the partner files the state return by himself, he will not need to pay tax to the state. Is there option to withdraw the composite return and file by himself? Thank you so much!
  6. Thanks for the prompt response. I mean nonresident for tax purpose. The spouse did not live in NJ in 2019 at all. Thanks.
  7. One spouse is NJ resident and another is NJ nonresident. They file federal joint return. Since the NJ nonresident spouse has foreign country income and filed form 2555. NJ seems does not recognize 2555 income exclusion. So, I am thinking if I file NJ separate returns for them, the non resident will not need to report the foreign country income. My questions are: 1. can they file NJ joint return if one is NJ resident and another is NJ nonresident 2. if they choose to file NJ separate return and federal joint return due to one spouse is NJ nonresident, does ATX accommodate such treatment? Does ATX allow me to choose MFS for NJ and MFJ for federal? If yes, can I efile NJ separate return or I have to paper file? Thank you so much!
  8. the taxpayer prefers to file as dual status rather than make the choice of treating the nonresident as full year resident. In such case, he can not take the child tax credit, right. ATX Max has the checkbox where I can choose dual status return but under such choice, child tax credit is still available. Is it the bug of the software? Any comments? Thank you!
  9. Thanks for the reminder!
  10. Here is what I got from IRS website: "Nonresident Spouse Treated as a Resident If, at the end of your tax year, you are married and one spouse is a U.S. citizen or a resident alien and the other spouse is a nonresident alien, you can choose to treat the nonresident spouse as a U.S. resident. This includes situations in which one spouse is a nonresident alien at the beginning of the tax year, but a resident alien at the end of the year, and the other spouse is a nonresident alien at the end of the year. If you make this choice, you and your spouse are treated for income tax purposes as residents for your entire tax year Example. Bob and Sharon Williams are married and both are nonresident aliens at the beginning of the year. In June, Bob became a resident alien and remained a resident for the rest of the year. Bob and Sharon both choose to be treated as resident aliens by attaching a statement to their joint return. Bob and Sharon must file a joint return for the year they make the choice, but they can file either joint or separate returns for later years. "
  11. taxpayer is a non resident for first few months of 2019 and got green card afterwards and plans to file dual status return. Does child tax credit apply to him for the period he is resident alien if all other child tax credit qualifications are met. On IRS website, it lists restrictions for dual status return filers including the following quotes but does not specifically mention child tax credit issue. anyone can give some guidance on this? Thank you! "If you are a nonresident alien and married to a U.S. citizen or resident alien, you may not take the earned income credit, the credit for the elderly or disabled, or an education credit unless you elect to be taxed as a resident alien jointly with your spouse in lieu of these dual-status taxpayer rules."
  12. Yes. spouse was a nonresident at year end.
  13. Just found the answer on Pub. 519. The spouse can choose to file MFJ for the whole year.
  14. Taxpayer became us green card holder in February 2019. But her spouse remained as nonresident at year end 2019. Does this situation qualify for the choice of filing married filing jointly for the whole year as residents for both of them. Or the choice is only available to the situation where the resident spouse has to be full year resident? Thanks.
