Job change and tax implications

Hi taxbuddyct,

 

Congrats on becoming a permanent resident.

 

It sounds like you could have been a tax resident of the US already as an H1 visa holder, depending on when you came to the US. Becoming a permanent resident (ie a green card) changes your legal residency status and makes you into a tax resident if you were previously a tax nonresident. However, the rules for tax residency and legal residency are different and unless you came to the US very recently you would likely have already been a tax resident even prior to getting the green card. You can review IRS Pub 519 for details - read the section on the Substantial Presence Test in Chapter 1.

I hope this helps answer your question!
