USA Tax filing from India


(Teja) #1

I have recently (December 2018) moved to India as my H1 extension did not get thorough. I have to file my taxes for 2018. The question is

  1. Which address do I need to put in the application US or India?
    I came to know that if I use India’s address, I have to send the 1040R application through mail and will not qualify for standard deduction. Is this correct?
  2. Will it be a problem if I use US address? Will it cause any issues in the future when I’m back in US?

I am not sure about using the Indian or US address at this time.

You can use a CPA’s service to file US tax.

I think you can use your last US address to file your US tax this year. It should not cause any issue.

okay, thanks. If there’s no issue with using US address I will use that.

As per my opinion, there should be an issue. But, it would be better if you consult a tax expert.
