I moved to the US from Canada end of November 2015 for a new job (about 35 days in 2015 with new job). Haven't worked in the US before and have only visited maybe 40 days over the last 3 years purely for vacation (so, well within the non-resident requirement).
I am looking at the 1040NR form and have a few questions:
1) Do I need to include any of my Canadian income in the "Schedule NEC—Tax on Income Not Effectively Connected With a U.S. Trade or Business" section? Even though this section says "Not effectively connected", it still refers to US sourced income only right?
2) "Section OI - Other Information" asks for exact dates I was in the US during 2015 (including vacation), and for the # of dates over 2013-2014. How is this relevant for tax calculations? I am guessing they want to validate I am non-resident - but is it also used for other purposes, such as pro-rating my personal excepion?
Thanks everyone. Even an answer to one of the questions would be helpful.
