Income tax treaties allow some taxpayers (if they meet the requirements) to convert themselves from resident alien status to nonresident alien status for income tax purposes. Learn about these treaty provisions called "tie-breaker rules" and find out who can use them. Identify how do the treaties work and how do you prepare Form 8833 to claim nonresident status.

  • Be able to identify the tie-breaker rules in an income tax treaty and determine the taxpayer's U.S. resident or nonresident status using those rules.
  • Identify taxpayers who are eligible for using the tie-breaker rules.
  • Prepare a treaty election claim (Form 8833) and know how to file it.
  • Determine what income is taxable in the United States and what tax compliance is required for a person making a treaty election to be a nonresident alien for income tax purposes.

Major Topics:
  • Line-by-line review and completion of a sample Form 8833.
  • How income tax treaties override the Internal Revenue Code.
  • How compliance and reporting requirements are affected by a treaty election.

CPAs and attorneys.
