Trust me friend.

You are a Resident alient for IRS purposes based on the 183 day substantial presence test of IRC src. 7701(b)

It really does not matter what INS thinks about you!

Since you earn here, you pay your taxes here. That is okay. But did you know that you have to pay social security tax eventhough you are NOT eligible for the benifits of social security.

Talk about Hipocrisy!!
