Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hi my name is Mark. I will be happy to help you. I am having a hard time understanding your question. Could you please explain.
Is your Wife also working in the United States?
You would both need to file separate 1040-NR returns as married non resident alien. Give me a moment to check on the tax rates for you.
The tax rate for non-resident aliens is a flat rate of 30% for federal taxes. What country are you from? There is possibly a treaty in place that you allow for lower taxation.
Are you being paid as an employee?
Ok, please give me a few moments I am checking on the state taxes for you. The Social Security taxes would be taken out by your employer.
The SS taxes are 6.2% of the first 118,500. There is also a 1.45% Medicare tax.
