Whether I am a resident alien or non resident alien?
I came to USA very first time on MAY 2009 in H1B visa; my wife came to USA on JULY-2009 I am trying to file my tax return
For Federal Tax Filing
1) Whether I am a resident alien or non resident alien?
2) What form I need to use for filing my tax return?
3) If I am a “non resident alien”, whether I am eligible for getting the “Making work pay and government retiree credits”?
For State Tax Filing
1) What is my residence status? Whether I am FULL-YEAR RESIDENT? Or PART-YEAR RESIDENT?
