the 5-year is 5 calendar years (tax years). your
hubby should already filed tax for 5 times and last
year was resident alien for whole year. he could
choose to be treated as non-resident alien if include
a letter stating he has no intent to stay in the US...
see pub 519. however, doing so probably gives him and
you no benefits.
1042-S is just part of your income. all income show
on 1042-S can be exempted from tax for chinese students.
you could file jointly as resident (1040). you are
not his dependent. no spouses are dependents.
according to the tax treaty, both you and your hubby
should be able to claim the treaty benefit even you
file as resident aliens.
