9 months OPT and 3 months on H1B - Tax Returns
Asked Jan 29, 2013, 08:36 AM
I started my Masters study in US from Fall 2008 and graduated in May 2011. I started working from Oct 2011 on OPT.
For the year 2012, I was on OPT from Jan 1st until Sep. I was present in the US for all my OPT months. My H1B started from Oct1st 2012. I visited India for a good one month from Nov end until Dec end.
So my question is do I qualify for Dual Resident Alien? If yes what forms should I file?
I would appreciate your help.
