Yes, but be careful, it is not the distance moved, but the distance closer to new job. Just sayin'

Nelsona,

For while filing Michigan taxes ..can we use treaty and file married filing jointly option and get exemptions for both me and spouse or do I have to use married filing separately and only use single exemption?

Any suggestions?

Thank you

I o not delve into state taxes, call the state dept of revenue.

Hi Nelsona

At last at a stage of sending in the taxes. Thank you for your help. I was wondering do we send in the 1040 "pro forma" forms along with the 1040NR or just mention that we are using a treaty in letter would suffice?

Sorry for a dumb question.

Regards
Sajan

You need to submit the 1040 along with the mention of the treaty article, attached to your 1040NR
