Course Description

Course Description

New arrivals, both Immigrants and refugees, may have little information about how to handle their U.S. tax situation. During their first two tax years in the U.S., they may face unusual income tax return procedures or foreign information reporting requirements & forms. Some tax professionals or well-intentioned assistance organizations or sponsors may not be able to provide expert guidance.

How the new arrival qualifies to enter the U.S. may be less important than their past and current economic activities.

New immigrants may become U.S. residents by holding an immigration visa. Or they may enter the U.S. on another visa type and become a tax resident by meeting the Substantial Presence Test (SPT).

Those who obtain a Diversity Immigrant U.S. Visa through the ‘visa lottery’ were not sponsored for that visa by a U.S. person. If they were not already in the U.S. on a different visa when they won the visa lottery, they may have no insights into the U.S. income tax system. Special immigrant visa holders will not have encountered the U.S. tax system while they were USG employees, or worked with the U.S. or international organizations. The website www.usgreencardoffice.com has no information on U.S. taxation.

This Tax course discusses what new arrivals, both green card holders and (future) tax residents, need to know about US worldwide income taxation. that is based on residency as well as citizenship. They may:

  • Never have lived or worked in the U.S.
  • Have been in the U.S. on a visa, and filed income taxes on Form 1040-NR
  • Have met the Substantial Presence Test while in the U.S. and filed income taxes on Form 1040.
  • Be single or be accompanied by a spouse and dependents.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand how the U.S. worldwide citizenship-based taxation affects a green card holder (Lawful Permanent Resident – LPR)  and U.S. income tax reporting.
  • Understand which income tax form(s) are filed, according to when U.S. resident status for green card holders and tax residents by SPT begins. 
  • Understand what residence elections may be available.
  • Understand what may be taxed on their U.S. income tax returns.
  • Understand what income tax credits, deductions, and exclusions they may qualify to claim.
  • Understand that ongoing foreign economic activity, assets, or accounts may require submitting foreign information reports.
