Free e file 2013 taxes   If you obtain an extension and unforeseen events make it impossible for you to meet either the bona fide residence test or the physical presence test, you should file your income tax return as soon as possible because you must pay interest on any tax due after the regular due date of the return (even though an extension was granted). Free e file 2013 taxes    You should make any request for an extension early, so that if it is denied you still can file your return on time.

Free e file 2013 taxes You must file a joint income tax return for the year you make the choice. Free e file 2013 taxes This means that neither of you can claim under any tax treaty not to be a U.

Free e file 2013 taxes Ending the Choice To Treat Nonresident Alien Spouse as a Resident Revocation   Either spouse can revoke the choice for any tax year. Free e file 2013 taxes   • The revocation must be made by the due date for filing the tax return for that tax year. Free e file 2013 taxes   • The spouse who revokes the choice must attach a signed statement declaring that the choice is being revoked. Free e file 2013 taxes The statement revoking the choice must include the following:     • The name, address, and social security number (or taxpayer identification number) of each spouse.

Free e file 2013 taxes     • A list of any states, foreign countries, and possessions that have community property laws in which either spouse is domiciled or where real property is located from which either spouse receives income.

Free e file 2013 taxes Death   The death of either spouse ends the choice, beginning with the first tax year following the year in which the spouse died. Free e file 2013 taxes   • If the surviving spouse is a U. Free e file 2013 taxes S. Free e file 2013 taxes citizen or resident alien and is entitled to the joint tax rates as a surviving spouse, the choice will not end until the close of the last year for which these joint rates may be used. Free e file 2013 taxes   • If both spouses die in the same tax year, the choice ends on the first day after the close of the tax year in which the spouses died. Free e file 2013 taxes Divorce or  Legal separation   A divorce or legal separation ends the choice as of the beginning of the tax year in which the legal separation occurs. Free e file 2013 taxes Inadequate records   The Internal Revenue Service can end the choice for any tax year that either spouse has failed to keep adequate books, records, and other information necessary to determine the correct income tax liability, or to provide adequate access to those records. Free e file 2013 taxes Suspending the Choice The choice to be treated as a resident alien does not apply to any later tax year if neither of you is a U. Free e file 2013 taxes S. Free e file 2013 taxes citizen or resident alien at any time during the later tax year. Free e file 2013 taxes Example. Free e file 2013 taxes Dick Brown was a resident alien on December 31, 2010, and married to Judy, a nonresident alien. Free e file 2013 taxes They chose to treat Judy as a resident alien and filed a joint 2010 income tax return. Free e file 2013 taxes On January 10, 2012, Dick became a nonresident alien. Free e file 2013 taxes Judy had remained a nonresident alien.

Free e file 2013 taxes Neither Dick nor Judy was a resident alien at any time during 2013 and their choice is suspended for that year. Free e file 2013 taxes For 2013, both are treated as nonresident aliens. Free e file 2013 taxes If Dick becomes a resident alien again in 2014, their choice is no longer suspended and both are treated as resident aliens. Free e file 2013 taxes Ending the Choice Once made, the choice to be treated as a resident applies to all later years unless suspended (as explained earlier) or ended in one of the ways shown in Table 1-1.
