How do I file 1040NR(-EZ) online via services like taxact? On IRS site it says that 1040NR supports online e-filing(no info about 1040NR-EZ though)


TaxAct has these instructions for getting to that form through TaxAct:

  1. From within your TaxAct return (Online or Desktop), click on the Basic Info tab. On smaller devices, click the menu icon in the upper left-hand corner, then select Basic Info
  2. Click Continue until you reach the screen titled Name, Social Security Number and Date of Birth.
  3. Click the link Should you file a Form 1040NR - U.S. Nonresident Alien Income Tax Return?
  4. The program will proceed with the interview questions for you to enter or review the appropriate information.

    Between 3 and 4, you will be asked to buy TaxAct Plus. – Victor Sergienko Sep 13 '17 at 2:12

Per Iowa state university (not available any more), the IRS has 2 providers available.

New for 2016 is the option to e-file the Form 1040NR nonresident tax return. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has made available two services that will assist qualified users to electronically file both Form 1040NR and the corresponding State tax return(s) free of charge. Both programs will be available after January 23, 2017. They are:

  1. Onlinetaxes.com

(this is not available any more.)

  1. TaxAct.com

Note that the shorter and easier Form 1040NR-EZ is not yet available for electronic filing.
