News and Announcements

IRS Tax Filing Season is Here

If you were physically present in the U.S. in F or J status anytime between January 1 and December 31, 2017, you are required to send a Form 8843 to the Internal Revenue Service (the U.S. tax agency), even if you had no income.

If you had no income during the 2017 tax year (January 1-December 31, 2017), you can complete Form 8843 now.  Completing the Form 8843 is relatively simple and you do NOT need to use a tax preparation software program to complete it. You should be able to complete Form 8843 on your own and mail it to the IRS at: Department of the Treasury, Internal Revenue Service Center, Austin, TX 73301-0215.

If you had income (salary, stipend, prize money, etc.) during the 2017 tax year (January 1-December 31, 2017), in addition to Form 8843, you are required to file a tax return (Form 1040 NR OR Form 1040NR-EZ) to reconcile your accounts with the IRS.  Filing a tax return is how you will receive a refund of any taxes withheld in 2017 above the amount you owe or determine if you owe any additional taxes. The deadline for filing taxes is April 17, 2018 (or June 15, 2018, for those with scholarship or fellowship income only).   

The Slutzker Center has purchased access to a software tax preparation program called Sprintax to guide you through the non-resident tax preparation process, prepare the necessary documents and determine if you are due a refund or owe taxes. An access code was sent to all registered students on or about February 15, 2018. Look for an email from lescis@syr.edu with the subject line "Slutzker Center Sprintax Tax Preparation Software". If you file as a resident, you cannot use Sprintax.
