<<A co worker of mine and her husband were international students for part of last year before they were married. They also moved to another state (MA) to start work after graduation. So they have two forms for state returns. For the federal return, the 1040NR does not give them an option to file jointly. Are they looking at the wrong form? >>No, they aren't. If they are non resident aliens for tax purposes (and check pub 519 for the criteria) they cannot file jointly. This may seem like a bad idea, but there are some perks: bank interest is not taxable, for example. I would suggest an evening with a cup of coffee and IRS pub 519.Hope that helps,YN
