6251 Alternative Minimum Tax Line 29 Form 1040N

Hi,

I am filing 1040 NR and to figure out how much should I pay AMT I am filing form 6251 but in line 29 I don't understand what should I fill.

In 6251 instruction they say:

If filing status box is 3,4 or 5 and line 28 is not more than 80,450 then file 42,250 but I do have more than 80,450 on line 28. So, to figure out i will have to fill the worksheet. What should I fill on line 1 and line 3 of the work sheet? I should consider myself as married filing jointly or married filling separately.

Note: I am married and wife doesn't have any income.

I checked box 5(Other married nonresident alien) in 1040NR .

I should consider myself as married filing jointly or married filling separately. Note: I am married and wife doesn't have any income.==========> Generally, you cannot file as married filing jointly unless your spouse is a US resident/ citizen ; However, nonresident aliens married to U.S. citizens or residents can choose to be treated as U.S. residents and file joint returns.
