1099R for non-residents

Hi. I'm looking for advice on how to file my mom's taxes. She's not a US citizen and is non-resident in the US. She briefly worked in the US a long time ago and had 2 retirement accounts that she just closed last year. The money was transferred to a joint account in both our names. She's currently retired with no income. She received 2 1099R forms for the accounts she closed last year. I'm looking for advice on how to file her taxes as there were amounts on her accounts that were withheld for taxes. Does she need to file just the federal taxes? Any special procedures for non-US citizens or non-residents? She's using my address in MA to get mail, does she need to file for state taxes if she doesn't live here? Thanks!

1099R for non-residents

She will need to file a form 1040NR as opposed to a form 1040 since she is not a citizen or resident. You can't do that in TurboTax but you can use Sprintax to do it:  Sprintax  She won't need to file a state tax return unless she was a resident of or received income from a source in a state during 2023.
