Do i have to change my residency if i have dacca? if so what do i change it to?

If you are currently in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, that means you have been physically present in the United States more than long enough for you to obtain resident alien status under the law.  In other words, you are definitely not a nonresident alien for income tax purposes, if you were granted DACA status.

Therefore, you should consider yourself a resident alien for tax purposes.  As such, you are subject to the same US income tax reporting rules and laws as US citizens.  In fact, for income tax purposes, you will treat yourself the same.  You will need to file Form 1040 just like US citizens or resident aliens, if required to file.  Nonresident aliens have a different set of tax forms and requirements; but resident aliens are generally treated for tax purposes like US citizens (and use the same tax forms).
