Tax Filing Obligation

Federal and State Tax Filing Requirements and Forms 

International students must submit certain tax forms each year, regardless of whether or not any income was earned.  Below are the federal and state filing forms for the most recently completed tax year.  

All students must complete US Form 8843 for every year they are present in the United States.  The International Student Services Office will hold a designated tax day event in April to assist international students with their tax forms.  Please check the Global News events calendar for the time and place.  

If you earned income in the US then you may need to complete additional forms.  Please read the instructions for each form to determine applicability.
