Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hello and thank you for using Just Answer,Having a bank account in the US does not by itself require tax reporting. The interest earned in a US bank by a Non resident alien is not taxable to the non US person. As long as the bank deposit interest is not effectively connected with the conduct of a U.S. trade or business you are not required to report or pay US tax.
