Filing Your US Tax Return

Filing Tax ReturnsIf you're an international student inside the US you must provide the IRS with the tax Form 8843, even if you did not earn income last year. Because of this, we've created our new Form 8843 Online Wizard! If you haven’t already checked it out, make sure you do before the April 17th deadline. Our Wizard is free, and secure - information entered into the Wizard is never stored.

Our tax section can provide you with helpful information this tax season including what forms you need to complete, and with partners like Sprintax, there is even help if you need further guidance.
