    Hello everybody,

    I am a Ukrainian citizen residing in the UK. In 2016 I won a piano competition prize of $15.000 in the US, and was given a check for $10.500, as had 30% of tax withheld. The competition office informed the winners that it is possible to request a refund by filling the 1040-NR form, however, no further instructions were given. Recently I have got copies B-D of 1042-S form.
    Would anybody be so kind to explain me the process of getting the withheld tax back. I only came to the US for a competition, but am a UK tax resident.
    Thank you very much.
