Help for Other Information Section - 1040NR

Post by WiseGuy » Sat Mar 31, 2007 6:43 pm

Hello!

Am filling in the section entitled - Other Information on the last page of the 1040NR for the first time.

I left the US in 2005 (was working on TN) and came back for a couple of days vacation in 2006.

When I do a 1040NR for 2006 is the Other Information section filled in from the perspective of the TN period in 2005 or the B2 stint in 2006?

In particular, I was unsure of Questions A-G from page 5 of the 1040NR, which asked the purpose for visit, type of entry visa, current nonimmigrant status and date of change, and date entered US.

Thanks,

Peter

Had an IRA redemption plus some US Unemployment Insurance in 2006.

You fill out 1040NR questions as they retain to 2006. You went to US as a tourist, say so.

The days of presence in previous years are all days, regardless of status. They just want to know if you are allowed to file 1040NR -- you are.

Don't forget the 10% IRA penalty (line 55), which is not creditable on your Cdn tax return.
