I am living in the Netherlands and have a US savings account. Do I have to file a US tax return?
Article ID: 176 | Last Updated: Tue, Feb 7, 2012 at 12:38 PM
I am not an American citizen and I lived in USA for almost 7 years and filed taxes during all this time. I came back to my home country 2 years ago and left in US a savings account open and some stocks in a brokerage bank. I did not file tax last year because I did not know if I had to do so. I am wondering if I have to file for tax return this year. I hope you can help me answering this question.
The answer to this question depends on your residency status in the US. You mentioned you are not a US citizen, but the situation is different for nonresident aliens versus resident aliens. Technically, you are you considered a resident alien if you hold a green card or if you have substantial presence in the US (183 day rule). Resident aliens are taxed in the same manner as US citizens
