I was a nonresident alien (J1) for 5 months. Do I have to report foreign income, transferred to my US bank account?

I was a non-resident alien for 5 months unders  J1 and kept my US bank account. Throughout the year, I received some foreign income (consulting) in that bank account (during my J1 and after).

Do I have to declare my foreign deposits received? If so, do I declare it for the whole year or only during the J1 period?


Thank you!

If those 5 months were your only time in the US on J1 you were are nonresident alien and you would only be required to report US source income, so no income earned for work performed abroad.

Abroad... there was no work performed in the USA on those projects; however, I received payments while I was under my J-1 in the USA (and I still receive payments now on my US bank account).
