Calculating Elapsed Days
Calculate Duration Between Dates
Tax reporting for nonresident aliens for
tax purposes includes the need to know how many days the taxpayer has
been present in the United States for each year present. The count of
days should be as accurate as possible. The IRS does not want estimates
and expects the taxpayer to keep track during the year when entering
and leaving the United States.
To assist in making a correct count, you can use the calculation tool below. When counting days of presence
in the US, days of arrival and departure are to be included in the count
of days present. When using the calculation tool, recognize that its
calculation excludes the ending date of the date range you give it.
For example, if you arrived on August 8 and stayed in the US through December
31, you would have 146 day present in the US. To get that result from
the calculation tool you would specify your date range as from August 8
to January 1 of the next year.
