My wife came to US in Nov 2019 on a H-4 visa. Has anyone here filed tax return on their own to include wife in the return and also apply for ITIN ? What’s the process? Even though I got married in Dec

2017, I filed tax return as single for past years since she was not here. Can I amend those tax returns? Any way to get more refunds in a legal way is helpful as she cannot work and life can be expensive here.

I used a tax consultant who processed my wife's ITIN and then filed my taxes jointly. He used whatever deductions I was eligible for to maximize my return. I would advise against doing it alone.

Thanks for the advice. I think I will also use a tax consultant.

Same situation in 2019, I used ao tax

Not bad at all, pretty seamless.

Do AO tax

Should I sell the shares, buy a LEAP and move the money elsewhere? This way if the stock does skyrocket I can buy back 100 shares at a cheap price? Plus LEAPS keep a lot of value based solely off the fact that there’s a lot of time left and this is a speculative stock, right?

I have been working in US for the last 2 years and haven’t had my H1-B picked in my first 2 attempts at the lottery and I have 1 attempt remaining. With the second round of lottery happening this year now in August, would it count as my 3rd attempt or will I still have a chance to file next year since this second round is only to meet the required number of H1-B granted this year? My OPT expires in Feb 2022, so not quite sure about the process if I’m not picked.

Any insights are appreciated!
