I got married after I moved to my home country. So I never brought my wife to US, but as of Dec 31 2016 I'm married. So I'm filing returns as a married person, and have included my wife's details.
Now as we didn't return to US after marriage, she never got a SSN/ITIN. And this is stopping me from completing my return process. Please advise what should be done is such a case.
Hello, If your spouse doesn't have and isn't required to have an SSN or ITIN (she is not required to file a U.S. tax return), enter “NRA” in the space for your spouse's SSN. Of course, you would have to print, manually write in the 'NRA' and mail your tax return.
If I'm to do all this stuff, then do I need to use TurboTax at all for tax filing? Do I have to do this for both federal and state taxes? Where should these be sent to?
Just a sec, we found a few things to fix before we can start
Let's go to Personal Info and fix:
Missing Social Security numbers
Two people having the same Social Security number
Once that's done, we'll be ready to give Health Insurance another start (no rush).
And just two option one is back and the other continue. With continue I again go back, but can't mention Spouse's SSN
Well, it seems I can't e-fill OH tax returns as my spouse is a non-resident. So I'll have to mail that.
So essentially, I've to take a printout and mail for both fed and state. On the 'File' section, I still see fees for 'TurboTax Deluxe' and 'Ohio tax return'. What is the point in paying these fees if I have to manually file them? Can you tell me how to print the returns so that I can mail them manually instead of e-filling? Or mail me a service code to remove this fees.
Also, I've been regularly using TurboTax for past few years and I haven't been charged this high fees of $95. In the past I have e-files with just $40. This time around the e-file isn't applicable, but still I'm being charged more than twice the amount. Please provide a service code, or directly reduce the total fees, so that I can go ahead and complete step 1, 2, 3 and file my taxes manually.
Ideally, I'd like have a call to discuss this, but I do not have a US number right now. If you could give me a call on my India number or give me a US number where I can call, that will be great.
