How do you file your taxes as a work visa holder? L1 if that matters. Last year my company paid for a tax consultant but this year I need to do it on my own. Are there any recommended programs or services?

Hi - good thing is this is a 2year tax for you.
Generally year 1 as you have transitioned globally there are a lot check points for concluding on global taxable income and status

Year 2 onwards which I presume is your case , it’s the same filing bases as everyone else. Your salary and investment income will be the main focus.
Certain global investment income are taxable as well such as equities.

Would highly recommend using EY tax chat. It has an option for non-ey individuals Turbo Tax and Tax Act.

Yes, this is my second year and have been in the US the entire year. I’ll look into this! Thanks
