Default ITIN to Social Security No

Did anyone (or spouse) applied for Social Security No. who were using ITIN before, for tax purposes. I have applied for 485 and EAD and plan to apply for my wife's Social Security once I get the EAD. Are there any tax filing implications? How to switch to this new number and still be able to e-file next year (assuming I get EAD this year)?

You are worrying about something too early.

Anyways, next year, you need to write your wife's SSN instead of ITIN in the field on 1040 form where it says "SSN". Usually, in absence of SSN we mention ITIN. but after you get SSN, use SSN.

As far as tax implications, there wont be any tax implication if she gets SSN but does not work. If she does not work then it doesnt really matter whether she has SSN or ITIN, you will be able to file as "Married filing jointly" status (where the tax is the least).

If she does work, you will still be able to file as "Married filing jointly" status but ofcourse, her income would be taxable and you will have to include her income from her W2s also.

Anyways, you have a lot to worry about things before April 2008.

Default Wife on H1B and currently not working.

I am in a strange situation. My wife got her H1B approved with petition starting date 10/1/2006 but never worked. She got her SSN on 02/24/2007. I spoke to the attorney and he gave me 3 options:
1) Change her status to H4 and apply I-485 when she gets the approval notice. But I dont know whether the priority dates would be current then?
2) Send her back to the home country and get the H4 stamped and come back on legal status. I am afraid what if she is denied H4.
3) Apply I-485 and only at the time of adjustment of status, the officer can only decide her case to approve or deny. Till then we cannot know.

What was her status between 10/1/2006 and 2/24/2007 when she didnt had the SSN? Is she considered H1B or H4?

Is anybody in a similar situation and what are the options?

Thanks.
