Amend Tax Return for Tax Year 2017

Hi Team,

Last year 2018, I filled my status as single for Tax Year 2017.

I came to US with my Wife on 2019, So I filed as Married filling Jointly for Tax Year 2018 ( Applied ITIN and sent mail for Paper filling ) Got my Wife ITIN too.

 

My Question is Now I can amend my Tax return for Tax Year 2017 and shall I change the filling status from Single to "married filling jointly" because now I have ITIN for my Wife?

 

Am I correct? 

 

Thanks,

Gobinath

Not only can you do so you MUST do so ... if you filed SINGLE in 2017 when you were really married that was a big mistake ... so amend the return to change the filing status and add any income she had as well.
