US bank interest would be reported on line 9a of form 1040NR.

I thought US bank interest is exempt from taxable income. why it would include in 9a?

What kind of interest is it?

Ask Your Own Tax Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Interest income from bank at USA such as Wells Fargo, Bank of America etc

This would be taxable interest. US Government interest would not be taxable.

Hi. I am a different expert. Lane here.

...

You don't report interest of a non-resident alien from a U.S. bank account because it is EXCLUDED interest.

...

When interest is excluded, you can take that literally .. meaning that you EXCLUDE it from the form.

...

See this from IRS:

...

"U.S. Source Interest Income that is not connected with a U.S. trade or business is excluded from income if it is from:

  • Deposits (including certificates of deposit) with persons in the banking business,
  • Deposits or withdrawable accounts with mutual savings banks, cooperative banks, credit unions, domestic building and loan associations, and other savings institutions chartered and supervised as savings and loan or similar associations under federal or state law (if the interest paid or credited can be deducted by the association), ..."

That's what I thought. Thank you
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Just double check, don't we have to show it as exempt interest income somewhere on the Form 1040NR?

No, as I said, it's EXCLUDED. Excluded from income means it's excluded from the return.

...

Please let me know if you have ANY questions at all, before rating me.

I hope you’ll rate me (using those stars, or faces on your screen, by clicking submit) based on thoroughness and accuracy, rather than any good news / bad news content.

Otherwise I’ll receive no compensation for the work here at all, from JustAnswer.

Thank you!
