I am an F1 student (NRA) and Married. Based on the new 1040NR(-EZ) instruction a married NRA cannot claim more than $5,000 deduction (1040NR Instruction).
Glacier Tax Prep is a software provided to F1 students by most universities to fill the federal tax forms out. However, Glacier puts more than $5,000 deduction in my form (Line 11 1040NR-EZ). I contacted them twice but they just sent me a template answer that I could claim for $10,000. It is like the software has a bug and does not consider if the NRA is married or not.
Who is right here? me or Glacier?
If they are wrong, there are many F1 students filing their tax returns incorrectly.
