Quick question Helen
« on: January 21, 2004, 03:31:06 PM »
Hello Helen,

I have a quick question for you.

I have everything I need to prepare my taxes for the US.

The only thing I have done for 2003 is move to England...  Tom and I are not legally married yet...  I have not worked here at all...  and I arrived the end of November... my W-2 forms state my UK address.

I would normally do the 1040EZ form...  will that still be ok for this year... or will I need to fill out some other forms?  I know next year will be different...and Tom and I will be married then as well as hopefully a job here...  But I was very cautious with the situation for 2003 to make my last earnings in America as simple as possible.

your advise would be most appreciated.

Thank You
Michele (Shel)

Hi there

If your earnings are from the US only, and you qualify under the rules to file an 1040EZ return (see other link called 1040, 1040A, 1040EZ?) then yes, you can file a 1040EZ in 2003.

Not sure which state you are from, but you need to file a part-year state return in 2003 (unless you are froma domicile state).

I just sent a question to the State of Maryland for my tax inquiry of the year...  I stated that my move was just after first of year...  I mean, who would know...I lived and worked in the state for 11 out of 12 months...I am sure they would prefer to get the full year of my tax...right?

You just know whether a state is domicile or not by reading the rules on that state.

Which state are you from?
