I am considered a nonresident alien for the tax year 2015. As such I have to file Form 1040NR of which Schedule OI is a part of. One question on the Schedule OI asks this: "H. Give number of days (including vacation, nonworkdays, and partial days) you were present in the United States during: 2013, 2014, 2015."
The instructions, however, say:
For the list of exceptions to the days you must count as actually present in the United States, see Days of Presence in the United States in chapter 1 of Pub. 519.
That publication says "Do not count days for which you are an exempt individual". A category of exempt individuals is students with a "J" visa, which is my case.
So in that question in Schedule OI, do I input -0-, or do I input the number of actual days?
