Heck yes. Just attach a copy of your broker's statement which shows the amount of foreign taxes withheld and take the credit. The foreign tax credit is a nonrefundable credit. The OP stated that he had no tax liability, so claiming the credit without filing the 1116 provides no immediate benefit. On the other hand, I know that under certain circumstances you can carry forward an unused foreign tax credit if you do file the 1116. Unfortunately, it's been so many years since I had to complete an 1116 that I no longer remember what those circumstances are.In no event do you attach the broker's statement showing the amount of foreign taxes withheld to your return.
