Tax Filing for F-1 Students

Tax Filing for F-1 Students

Please visit for detailed information about tax filing requirements for international students 
Please be advised that federal tax filing is required even if you were not employed in the previous year. 

While filing taxes can seem like a daunting task at first glance, filing for most F-1 students is simple and can be done without assistance and using one's own personal computer. There are also many online, tax filing services that provide a user-friendly platform for those that need help. The Office of International Programs has partnered with Sprintax to offer assistance in tax filing. 

The following visit the Sprintax site.

You will need a code to use Sprintax. In order to obtain the Sprintax code, you must present your student ID to the International Office (Kaufman 113).  The code cannot be shared, and you will not be given more than one code.
