I'm a non-resident alien, I have mutual funds in US. I have no other income from US, so all my income is NOT effectively connected with the conduct of a U.S. trade or business.
I plan to fill out form 1040NR, and use the "Simplified Procedure for Claiming Certain Refunds" explained on page 4 of the instructions for form 1040NR.
I got a 1099-DIV form from fidelity that says;Tax
reporting information is supplied to you by each mutual fund as a separate reporting entity. The IRS requires Fidelity to report each
mutual fund separately and to not include an aggregate total of all funds. Report these amounts on the appropriate IRS Form 1040 for each
mutal fund. Do not report amounts in aggregate under Fidelity Investments.
And then the form shows several lines, one for each mutual fund I hold.
My question is:
Do I have to fill out several copies of schedule NEC on the 1040NR form, one for each fund; or can I just enter the total dividends
paid by all funds? (on line 1a of schedule NEC)?
