 What is my Residence Status for Tax Purposes?

What is my Residence Status for Tax Purposes?

Your residency status for tax purposes is different than your immigration status.

✔️ According to the “green card” test, you are a resident, for U.S. federal tax purposes, if you are a lawful permanent resident of the United States at any time during the calendar year. You generally have this status if the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) issued you a Permanent Resident Card, also known as a “green card.”

✔️ On the other hand, according to the “substantial presence” test, you will be considered a United States resident for tax purposes if you were physically present in the United States on at least:

a. 31 days during the current year, and
b. 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.
