Ivonne, from Germany, worked part of the year at the local university in California. She gave the university Form 8233 and they properly applied her treaty benefit. In August, Ivonne moved to Illinois and began the fall semester at the local university. She gave Form 8233 to the university in Illinois. However, the Illinois university was not aware that Ivonne had already exempted part of her income in California. At the end of the year, Ivonne's taxable wages were calculated as follows:

Income and Federal Taxes Withheld Amount

W-2 California university wages, taxes withheld

$380

1042-S Code 19 California university

$9,000

W-2 Illinois university wages, taxes withheld

$1,685

1042-S Code 19 Illinois university

$9,000

Total wages

$20,065

Allowable treaty benefit

$9,000

Taxable wages

$11,065

Would Ivonne receive a refund of federal income taxes withheld if her treaty benefit was applied correctly at both colleges?
