Hi, I am a TN holder working in New York and my wife just got her TD status. I wanted her to get a Social Security Card so I can file her with my income tax return and get her a driver's license; I was also sending her to a school, and I think that I need SSN to do all of these... On the SSN application form it said that for a person without working permit to get a SSN, he or she will have to submit a document from the institution proving that they require SSN to approve what he or she was applying for. In my wife's case, I guess that means that she will need a letter from DMV and IRS stating that they need SS office to issue SSN. In my view, this most likly won't happen...I can't imagine that DMV or IRS will issue a letter like this... Does any one have experience with this? Any suggestion will be welcome. Thank you.
