I am hearing conflicting information about Form 8840 for 2020. Is the one-time policy change allowing snowbirds to exclude the days spent in the U.S. from Feb. 1-April 1 up to 60 days for purposes of the substantial presence test, applicable to those who file an 8840? How will that be calculated on the 2020 form?
Ed.: Just calculate your days in the normal way. If there comes a time when the IRS wants to speak to you (which is highly doubtful), that is when to deal with the exception policy change.
