France or Tunisian treaty

Dear All,

This is a great forum..and I hope that someone can please solve my dilemma.

I am an Tunisian national on J1 Visa in the US. However, I have never paid taxes in Tunisia. I did my PhD and was working in France for 5 years paying taxes there. I got my visa in france. Is my tax residency France or is it Tunisian? Because if I claim it to be Tunisia, there is no two years tax treaty. If it's France, what documents I need to claim the tax refund?
Thanks

"I am an Tunisian national on J1 Visa in the US. However, I have never paid taxes in Tunisia. I did my PhD and was working in France for 5 years paying taxes there. I got my visa in france.

"Because if I claim it to be Tunisia, there is no two years tax treaty. If it's France, what documents I need to claim the tax refund?"--->I see; as said please contact a French/ Tunisian tax preparer for sure, Ok???
For tax treaty between US and France, please visit the IRS Website here:http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-trty/france.pdf
