JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: I am a PhD student at Germany. Last summer 2015 I spend 3 months working at US for a National Laboratory I was getting paid for my internship and from what I see I also paid US tax. I didn't ask for any tax treaty. My question is if I have to file a tax form.
