Default Tax question

Just wondering if anyone knows the answer to this one??

I lived in the US Jan 01 to Jun 03. When I left I kept interest-bearing bank accounts there, along with credit cards & IRA.

Obviously I filed a tax return for 2003, but do I have to for 2004 to state the interest owned? Or is there a lower limit below which no return is necessary? Taking into consideration of course that I'm a non-resident & non-citizen.

Thanks.

Thanks.
If you have US "permanent resident" status (or you're an American citizen. Doesn't apply in your case), you have to file a US tax return, regardless of where in the world you live.

This applies even if you do not have to pay the IRS a cent.
