(12 consecutive months ending on the last day of a month other than December, or a 52–53 week year) and are considered to be a U. 1040x efile S. 1040x efile resident for any calendar year, you will be

alien, you are taxed on income from all sources. 1040x efile Income from sources outside the United States is taxable if you receive it while you are a resident alien. 1040x efile The income is taxable even if you earned it while you were a nonresident alien or if you became a nonresident alien after receiving it and before the end of the year. 1040x efile For the part of the year you are a

1040x efile Generally, tax treaty provisions apply only to the part of the year you were a nonresident. 1040x efile In certain cases, however, treaty provisions may apply while you were a resident alien. 1040x efile See chapter 9 for more information. 1040x efile When determining what income is taxed in the United States, you must consider exemptions under U. 1040x efile S. 1040x efile tax law as well as the reduced tax rates and exemptions provided by tax treaties between the United States and certain foreign countries. 1040x efile For a further discussion of tax treaties, see chapter 9.

exemption. 1040x efile Subject to the general rules for qualification, you can claim exemptions for your spouse and dependents when you figure taxable income for the part of the year you are a resident alien. 1040x efile The amount you can claim for these exemptions is limited to your taxable income (figured before subtracting exemptions) for the part of the year you are a resident alien. 1040x efile You cannot use exemptions (other than your own) to reduce taxable income to less than zero for that period. 1040x efile Special rules apply to exemptions for the part of the tax year you

business in the United States for your period of nonresidence, after allowable deductions, is added and taxed at the rates that apply to U. 1040x efile S. 1040x efile citizens and residents. 1040x efile Income that is not connected with a trade or business in the United States for your period of nonresidence is subject to the flat 30% rate or lower treaty rate. 1040x efile You cannot take any
