You came to the US to study, not to spend countless hours navigating US tax law (unless that's your program). To let you focus on what matters, we’ve teamed up with Sprintax to look after your tax return from start to finish.
Should You File a Return?
As an international student, you are classified as a ‘Non Resident Alien’ under US tax law and you need to file an annual tax return (Form 1040NR). If you haven’t worked or received a funding, you need to complete Form 8843. Sprintax can help with both.
- worked in the US?
- received a grant?
- received an allowance?
- received a stipend?
If you have, then you have to file a US tax return. Sprintax can help you avoid IRS penalties and fines by filing a timely and accurate return, meet the tax obligations of your academic visa, and maximize your tax refund.
Still unsure if you need to file? Read our tax FAQs for more detailed information about forms and filing for international students.
