How and When to File
You can file by mail or use Glacier Tax Prep. You must ask Nnennaya Ikwuagwu for an access code to use Glacier Tax Prep.
Be sure to collect all of your forms before you begin the paperwork. Most international students, faculty and staff will file either the Form 1040NREZ and/or the Form 1040NR tax form.
All forms and instructions are available on the IRS website.
You will need:
- W-2 forms: for earned income,
- 1042 forms: for scholarships and other types of income,
- 1099 forms: for capital gains investment income, but not for simple bank interest.
You can pay a professional tax preparer or accountant to complete the forms for you. There will be a fee. Ask an international student advisor for more information on how to find an accountant or tax preparer.
