In the calculator below, enter the number of days spent in the USA during the respective years. Note that you are considered to have spent a day in the USA if you were present in the USA at any point during the day. However, you do not need to include any of the following:
Since you either spent less than 31 days in the USA last year or spent less than 183 weighted days in the last three years you do not meet the requirements of the substantial presence test and accordingly do not have any US filing requirements.
If, however, you excluded days of presence in the USA (using the above exemptions) and would otherwise have met the requirements of the substantial presence test, you still need to file a Form 8843.
Since you spent less than 183 days in the USA in the last year but spent more than 182 weighted days in the USA in the last three years you need to file a Form 8840.
Since you spent more than 182 days in the USA in the last year you meet the substantial presence test. You should file a treaty based return Form 8833.
