General tax information

Taxes are very confusing for everyone, but can be especially confusing for international students. International student advisors are not tax professionals and cannot answer tax questions. A good place to start is our General tax information webpage. On this page you'll learn what status to file your taxes under, what documents you need and when to expect to receive them, as well as the need for a social security number or ITIN.

Sprintax for 2022 tax year will be available soon
