Standard deduction. If you are a student who qualifies under Article 21(2) of the United States–India Income Tax Treaty, you can take the standard deduction. The standard deduction amount for 2018 is $12,000.
I'm filing for form 1040NR as i have wages more than 100K. In my case, where should i use Standard Deduction. Line 37 (Form 1040NR) mentions using Itemized Deductions (which is 10,000$) for 2018
Do anyone know how to use Standard deduction(i.e where to put $12,000) instead of Itemized deduction?
