Instructor: Stuart P. Sobel
The United States has many classifications of people living within its boundaries. Terms like resident aliens, nonresident aliens, dual-status aliens, expatriates, visas, special immigrants, and undocumented aliens are not merely confusing. They also have a significant impact on the filing of Forms 1040 and 1040NR.
