  • Problem with 1042S

    My wife is a foreign national (I am a U.S. citizen), but we file as
    Married filing jointly, so she's considered a permanent resident for tax
    purposes. That's how we filed for 2003. Her application for permanent
    residency (Green Card) is being processed by Immigration (USCIS), but
    she doesn't have it yet.

    Here's the problem... she will be receiving a 1042S from a university
    for a scholarship (officially "internship") she received last summer.
    The university only looks at her student visa status, not her tax status.
    What do we do with a 1042S if we are filing as Married Filing Jointly,
    permanent residents?

    If she was supposed to get a 1099 or W2 instead, how do we demand that
    the university provide it? It's almost February 15 anyway...

    Thanks for any advice,
    Dave Kleinberg
