Spring 2021: CIIS will no longer host tax workshops for non-resident visa holders. Please use the resources below to file on your own, with free services or through a paid e-service called Sprintax.
All F1 students living in the U.S. must file at least one tax form each year, whether they worked or not. PLEASE READ WHO MUST FILE AND WHAT FORM(S)? IN THE DOUCMENT BELOW.
PROTECT YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION AND MONEY!
IRS will NEVER – not ever – send F-1 students an email. No exceptions. And, in no case should they ever respond to an email from the IRS (or any other governmental agency) seeking personal or banking information. IF the IRS needs to reach someone or has a question, the IRS will print a letter and then use the U.S. postal mail system. And, if there is missing information from a tax return, the original or a copy of the tax return is usually sent along with the letter requesting information, in which case, the person would re-submit the filing. The IRS will NEVER solicit a taxpayer to try to file a form to avoid paying tax.
