Commuter greencard holder tax filing

#1

Does anyone know if a commuter greencard holder should be filing a 1040, 1040A or 1040NR return.

Most likely a 1040 (1040A is basically a 1040, as in a shorter version), as he is a US resident…

1040NR is only for nonresidents

Thanks Bert for the reply. With the commuter green card the individual has no rights to take up residency in the United States. So, I would have thought the 1040NR would be applicable since they would be classified as a non-resident alien.

I should have said ‘considered resident for tax purposes’, my apologies

No problem. So, do your concur with the filing of a 1040NR vs 1040?

#7

no, you file a 1040
