I am filling for the first time as US resident alien. Can I e-file?

2016 was my first year as US resident alien, therefore this is my fist time using turbotax. When I wanted to e-file, it asked me to show adjusted gross income from 2015. In 2015, I was non resident and used 1040NR-EZ. Can I report gross income from 1040NR-EZ in order to verify my identity for e-file?

Your 2015 AGI will be on Line 10 of your 2015 1040NR-EZ

10 Subtract the sum of line 8 and line 9 from line 7. This is your adjusted gross income

Entering your prior year AGI is a new IRS requirement for electronically filed returns, the best way to find your AGI is on last year’s tax return, follow the instructions here: https://ttlc.intuit.com/replies/3301618


I hope this helps
