Previous posts to this board seem to state quite categorically that non-resident aliens do not have to pay capital gains tax

If you're talking about US stocks in your brokerage account, that is the case. No capital gains tax.

If you're talking about capital assets other than publicly traded stock, the story may be different depending on the type of income, the type of asset, and the location of the asset.
