My husband and I married this year. We are going through the immigration process now, however he does not have a social or a work permit yet. He has been working for a company for over a year now. He receives checks but no taxes are taken out. How do we file taxes jointly when his employer won't provide him a tax form? We are certain he won't do it as he didn't give him one last year. I know we need to file taxes jointly. We want to do the right thing but we aren't sure how to proceed from this point forward.
In this type of situation you need to prepare a tax return, declare all your income accordingly. Attach a form W-7 (Application for ITIN) with all the required supporting documentation and mail the whole package into the Address in the instructions for the form W-7.
