Tax and Financial Assistance
US Income Tax Assistance
Filing appropriate U.S. federal tax forms each Spring is required for all F-1 and J-1 students. You may be eligible for a tax refund according to the tax treaty between your country and the U.S. Every international student, regardless of income or not, has at least one tax document (Form 8843) to complete each year. ISSS provides access to special tax preparation software designed for non-resident alien tax forms.
