Major life milestones often have a major tax impact. Changes in your marital status, having a baby or adopting a child can have significant impact on your taxes. This is the place to ask questions about dependents, real estate, and other various scenarios that play a significant role in what taxes you pay.

H1B married to US citizen...can I file a joint tax return?

I'm on an H1B visa. Last year I married a US citizen. I have decided to get a Green Card rather than renew my H1B, however before I get my Green Card how should i file my taxes? Can I file jointly as a married couple or because I'm on an H1B do we have to file separately?
