Tax return 2012 Under these treaties, residents (not necessarily citizens) of foreign countries are taxed at a reduced rate, or are exempt from U. Tax return 2012 S. Tax return 2012 income taxes on certain items of income they receive from sources within the United States. Tax return 2012 These reduced rates and exemptions vary among countries and specific items of income. Tax return 2012 If there is no treaty between your country and the United States, you must pay tax on the income in the same way and at the same rates shown in the instructions for Form 1040NR. Tax return 2012 Also see Publication 519. Tax return 2012 Many of the individual states of the United States tax the income of their residents.

Tax return 2012 Tax treaties reduce the U. Tax return 2012 S. Tax return 2012 taxes of residents of foreign countries. Tax return 2012 With certain exceptions, they do not reduce the U.

Tax return 2012 citizen or resident who receives income from a treaty country may refer to the tables in this publication to see if a tax treaty might affect the tax to be paid to that foreign country. Tax return 2012 Foreign taxing authorities sometimes require certification from the U. Tax return 2012 S. Tax return 2012 Government that an applicant filed an income tax return as a U.

Tax return 2012 treaty (a treaty-based position), you generally must disclose that position on Form 8833 and attach it to your return. Tax return 2012 If you are not required to file a return because of your treaty-based position, you must file a return anyway to report your position.
