One last question and I promise not to bug you anymore. My Canadian TDWaterhouse brokerage account (has USD investments) has some dividends and withholding taxes. The T5 says Total Gross Foreign Income in the form of dividends - $X and US Non Resident Tax withheld- $Y. Will this go on 1040 as well??...

Could he claim the interest as income on his taxes since he has a lower tax bracket (no income) or would I have to claim it on my taxes? .The money is mine but he is a...

All I have is a single source of income i.e. my US wages.....I don't have any canadian income (except my bank interests) which I presume I do not need to report on my US taxes. Wouldn't it be better if I just file 1040 instead of 1040NR ?...Would that be a problem with the IRS?
