A multiterminal conductance formula describing resonant tunneling through an interacting mesoscopic system is derived and used to investigate the nonlinear conductance of a quantum dot. An explicit gauge-invariant expression for the I-V characteristic which depends sensitively on the full capacitance matrix is obtained. A voltage probe is found to have a dramatic effect on the nonlinear conductance.
