Question

How do I enter the filing status for a nonresident alien return?

Answer

  1. Enter a filing status in the Code field in Screen 1040. The appropriate codes for a nonresident alien return are 1=Single, 3= Married filing separate, and 5=Qualifying widow(er).
  2. Enter the applicable nonresident alien single or married code in Screen 1040.

Note: Both fields must be completed to correctly enter the filing status information required to complete the Filing Status portion on Page 1 of the 1040NR return.
