Income Tax Assistance For Tax Returns Filed In 2017 On 2016 Income

Students and scholars who worked in the US need to fill out and file tax forms with the U.S. Internal Revenue Service and the State of Colorado.  If you are a nonresident for U.S. income tax purposes, it is time to begin preparing to file your 1040NR or 1040NR-EZ forms on U.S. income you earned in 2016. All students and scholars who are on F-1 or J-1 visas, and who are nonresidents for U.S. tax purposes, are required to file Form 8843 Statement with the IRS, regardless of whether or not you had any U.S. income. 

ISSS has purchased an online service for our international students and scholars to use to help with nonresident U.S. income tax filing obligations. The online Foreign National Tax Resource (FNTR) from Windstar Technologies, Inc. will help you meet your U.S. federal tax filing requirement.

Please find important information about your U.S. tax filing obligations here.  This document also contains helpful resources and instruction on how to request your Foreign National Tax Resource access code. We hope that you find this information useful. The U.S. tax filing deadline is April 18, 2017.
