<<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?>>Almost always, Richard. Stock ownership is treated as an "intangable", in that any gain does not really have a source. So as a non-resident alien, capital gains from the sale of US companies shares would generally not be taxable for US purposes, and there would be no mandatory withholding. BUT you would certainly have to deal with the gain on the sale with your HOME country and their tax collection agency. For additional information, check out IRS Publciations 519 and 901. You can get these publications by calling IRS at 1-800-TAX FORM, or by pointing your web browser at http://www.irs.ustreas.gov where you can read or download these publications.TMF TaxesRoy
