Hi, I am a foreign student from China.But my wife is a resident alien. This year, I want to file the joint tax, as the resident alien.
But I have a question: I received my 1042-S form with income code 19 ($5000), and this non-taxable $5,000 is NOT shown in my W-2, I do not know how to put this income into Turbotax.
I tried previous method that you suggested, which is to put it into Miscellaneous Income. However, it seems you system is already updated. I put it as income, then my total taxable income will be increase to 5000, if I put it as negative 5000, then my total taxable income will be decreased.
Is there any method to put the 5000 as non-taxable income?
