The International student advisors are not experts on international tax matters. The International student advisors do not assist in the completion of individual income tax forms, and are unable to explain tax liability issues to international students, scholars or staff. Therefore, we recommend that you consult the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) or a qualified tax consultant regarding your possible U.S. tax obligations or attend a tax workshop. The following information is provided to help international students obtain the information they need so that they can make informed choices about their tax obligations.
The IRS publishes a number of helpful information/instruction booklets, which are available through the IRS Tax Payer Assistance Service (toll free 1.800.829.3676). Forms are available at most local public libraries
