Get Help Filing Your Taxes
international student taxMark your calendar for April 15th when your taxes are due! That’s right - every international student and their dependents (yes, that means your spouse and children) must file their taxes by April 15th. The paperwork you need to file with the IRS will depend on whether you received any sources of income:
  • Haven’t received any sources of income? You and your dependents will each need to submit Form 8843
  • Received sources of income? You’ll need to submit Form 8843 and most likely Form 1040NR-EZ
Need more help? Check out our Student Tax Return section that can help you step-by-step figure out which forms your need to file before the deadline! Or watch our short, 4 minute video overview covering international student tax filing!

On April 1st, International Student Insurance will update its two primary insurance plans, as it does every year. The Student Secure and Atlas Travel plans are two of the best insurance options for students around the world, whether you are planning to study abroad or just traveling - they offer world class benefits from one of the world’s leading insurance markets, Lloyds of London.

If you have already purchased coverage prior to April 1, 2014, there will be no changes to your plan, even if you renew or extend your coverage. The new benefits will only come into force for plans purchased on or after April 1st 2014.

To learn more about the plans, please visit the Student Secure or Atlas Travel pages. With prices starting at just $30/ month for an international student inside the USA on the Student Secure - it is still the most affordable insurance solution available!
