Married legal resident who's wife lives in Cuba
Married legal resident living in Florida who's wife lives in Cuba. He's processing immigration papers but can't be sure she'll be in the U.S. next year to file a joint tax return.
My questions refer to input on the Obamacare app regarding:
-His marital status
-Will file or not a joint return
-Place of residence of spouse
Here are the problems:
-if stated as married and wife isn't in the US to file income tax next year, what happens?
-If stated as single he won't get as much tax credit
-stating as single is really not true even though his wife is not in the US
-if I choose he won't file a joint return, no credits
Called the Marketplace and a supervisor had no idea on how to handle this situation.
