I was non-resident (NR) alien during first part of the year and became resident (R) alien the second part of the year. I worked for the same company the whole year and was issued W-2. During the non-resident part of the year, my employer did not withhold FICA taxes from paycheck and then resumed taking FICA taxes after becoming resident alien. I researched that I would need to file two returns: 1040-NR and 1040 as I was a resident at the end of the year.
- Since I have only 1 W-2 form from employer that basically combined wages for both statuses, what wages do I report on 1040-NR and what wages on 1040? Should I split them?
- Also, after becoming R, I earned self-employment income and received 1099-misc form. This amount I assume will be part of 1040 only?
- I am married but will file separately. Both of our statuses changed from NR to R at the same time, but my spouse did not earn while being NR. She did earn after becoming R. Does she need to file only 1040 and not 1040-NR?
