I’m moving to California on an L1 visa soon. My wife will also be traveling with me. We have the following in mind:
- She travels to US with me.
- Applies for the EAD work permit and comes back to India.
- Resumes her job in India until she actually gets the work permit.
- Once she get’s the work permit, she quits her job in India, travels back to the US, and tries to find a job there.
I have 2 questions:
What tax benefits do I get if I have a non working spouse ?
Do I get these benefits for the duration that she is not in the US but back in our native country and has a job there ?
