I'm not sure, but from what I can figure out I think "non-reclaimable" means you can claim it (which seems contradictory at first glance.) Here's what my Merrill Lynch guide says: "Foreign tax withheld, unless reclaimable from the foreign government, may generally be treated as a tax credit subject to limitations and restrictions on your return or, alternately, as an itemized deduction."

So from what I can figure out, "non-reclaimable" means the foreign government can't reclaim it and therefore you can claim it.
