I did an internship in Texas where I was paid $3000 as a stipend for 3 months. As mentioned I was under the visa category J-1 Student Intern. 14% of my stipend was withheld as part of federal tax.
I have verified that there would be no state tax deduction but I am unable to verify if I am able to account for any refund. I know about the NREZ 1040 tax form but I have seen that there is a tax of $303 mentioned in page-22. In many places, I have seen that there is a provision for full tax refund on J Visas for first 2 years.
Can someone help me about this as to how I can avail it ?
