<<But non-resident aliens are generally taxed only on income from sources within the US. Interest and dividends from US companies are generally considered to be from US sources. And income from US sources that is not effectively connected with a trade or business in the US is taxed at a flat rate of 30% (or a lower tax treaty rate). The good news is that your capital gains on the sale of the shares would not necessarily be considered income from a US source.>>

Could you amplify on when a capital gain from sale of a US company stock would/
would not be considered income from a US source?

Thanks,

Richard
