If you’re an international student inside the US don’t forget that you must file taxes before April 15th. What exactly does filing taxes entail? Everyone’s situation will be different, therefore, filing taxes won’t always be the same for each international student- it will depend on your situation. However, one thing is certain: every international student and their dependent must submit Form 8843 if they were located inside the US during the previous calendar year.
To give you further insight on filing federal taxes inside the US we are hosting a free Hangout on Air March 19th at 11am EST. There we will cover the basics of taxes for international students. You will walk away knowing why you must file, how to determine your residence status, be introduced to common tax forms and directed to where you can find assistance when it comes to filing your taxes.
