Important Information for International Students From the Office of Global Learning – Filing Your U.S. Federal Taxes

You will need to file U.S. federal tax returns if you received any U.S. based funds, such as wages, fellowships, or a travel grant in 2018. The Office of Global Learning provides access to software (SPRINTAX) to assist you, but WAIT!!!! 

We will make SPRINTAX available only after all required tax documents (W-2 and/or 1042S) are available in late February 2019. In the meantime, please make sure that your Student Center address is up-to-date with your current local address, and review tax information provided on the International Services tax webpage.

Domestic students: Look for an announcement on upcoming tax information sessions in next week’s Graduate Announcements.
