    Dual Status Return or NR Return

    I was in US 2006 on H1B since 1st May '06 to 8th May '07 along with Wife and son on H4
    My earlier visits to US were as below

    2002(H1b) - 92 Days
    2003(H1b) - 83 Days
    2004 (H1b) - 216 Days (Tax return filed as Dual status)
    2005(H1b) - 0 Days
    2006(H1b) - 147 Days


    1. Do I need to file under Dual Status or only 1040NR Form ?
    2. On 1040NR can I claim my Wife and son or both as dependent.
    3. I will be sending W7 along with tax return to address mentioned on W7, do I also need to send another copy of these to IRS Philadelphia ?

    Thank You
