I am a German citizen, married to a US Citizen, got my temp Green card in May 2012, moved back to Europe (UK) want to stay here forever.
That being said, I am currently filling out the I-407 to abandon my permanent resident status (first, since I don't want to file US taxes
for the rest of my life, and second, it is of no value anyways no more, since I left the US on June 30th 2012.)
My question is, what should I write under 6c Date of Abandonment?
My hope is to write Dec 31, 2012 (which would be 184 days after I left!!), since technically, I wouldn't have to file US taxes for 2013 anymore in that case, right? But the question is, can I still do that at this late point of time?
If not, which date do I have to put down?
I guess I should mention one more thing. I left the US on June 30 2012. However, I then went home to Germany for a while just in order to visit, and then moved to the UK on Sept 12, 2012.
So for tax purposes, that might make a difference as well, right? I was still conducting some business over the US while in Germany, and moved my business from the US to the UK on Sept 15, 2012.
