Thank you for your question, and thanks for using Pearl.com. When you are filling out your tax form
, you aren't going to enter in your visa information. If you pass the substantial presence test, you are classified as a Resident Alien
for tax purposes and fill out a normal 1040 and are taxed on your world wide income
The substantial presence test indicates you must be physically present in the United States
on at least:
31 days during the current year, and
183 days during the 3-year period that includes the current year and the 2 years immediately before that, counting:
All the days you were present in the current year, and
1/3 of the days you were present in the first year before the current year, and
1/6 of the days you were present in the second year before the current year.
Writing in your status is not required for a standard 1040. I did find a good article for you though for tax consideration for those on an H1B visa: http://h1bvisataxes.com/index_files/H1taxFAQ.htm
Please let me know if you need anything else. If you are a resident alien for tax purposes, fill out the 1040 just like you would if you were a US
citizen. There's no need to notate your immigration status on that return.
Thanks again for using Pearl.com and let us know if you need anything additional.

You should be aware that your question, as with most tax questions, can never really be answered completely...addressing all the permutations; that is because of the many assumptions that have to be made I have done my best to determine what I think you are asking and answering it in the most direct and understandable manner possible. If, however, after reviewing the questions, you have any uncertainties or further questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
