Last year, I've filed 1040NR-EZ myself by entering all the values in the form manually. Because of complications in my case this year, I'm seeking a software's help.
- I was on F1/OPT From Dec 2012 until Oct 2015. I'm on H1B from Oct 2015 to Dec 2015.
- My employer did not withheld my social security tax from Oct 1, 2015 as I changed status to H1-B. Looks like I've to pay that from Oct 1, 2015. I'm not sure how to report this in my tax form.
- In current year, I do have code 'D' in Box 12 of my W-2 if it matters.
- I also have a 1099-INT and a couple of bank bonuses totaling $350 for which I don't have 1099-INT form since I don't have those accounts any more. Please let me what information is required to report them.
From what I read in blogs and forums on people with similar case, I've to file as a Non Resident Alien or Dual alien. I'm not sure how to split my taxes if I've to file both 1040 and 1040NR. Also, how to report my social security. Will appreciate any help.
What is a reasonable software to file my taxes ? I went to H&R block and they are charging exorbitantly $250+ to unsaid amount. All local CPAs are totally booked at this time and not accepting appointments. I know I made mistake waiting for last minute.
Worst case, I want to file an extension and pay that 0.5% penalty on the due.
