Just now, GazGaijin said:

I have been married for almost a year now and I have just two weeks to do my taxes for the good ole USA. My wife, Japanese, does not have a social security number or tax id. Should I even bother putting her on my tax form or just do it as single? Same goes with our son. Any reason to put them on the taxes now or can I wait until later? I don’t think I have time to get her a tax id and I NEED to do my taxes (first time in years) to renew my visa.

Any help, advice, or suggestions are much appreciated.

Thanks!  Gaz

If you don’t need the deductions, file Married Filing Separately, enter NRA for wife’s social security number, and no dependants.
