标  题: Answer from IRS about H1 and F1 couple
发信站: The unknown SPACE (Thu Mar 15 15:11:56 2001), 站内信件

My situation: F1 with RA scholarship so I'm NR
My wife: H1B for a whole year of 2000 so she is R

I was wondering if we can file as single, or if filing jointly whether I
can still claim $5000 treaty. IRS said no to both.

Below is the an email anwer from IRS about H1 and F1 couple:

"You cannot file as single because you are married.  Your filing status
would be married filing seperately if you filed seperate returns.  If a
resident alien spouse chooses to file jointly with a nonresident alien
spouse, then no treaty benefits are available. I hope this information
is useful."

So we have to either pay marrage penalty if we file separately as married,
or lose the $5000 treaty if we file jointly.
