Important Information about Tax Requirements
F-1 students are required to file federal tax forms every year they are in the US even if they do not earn any money in the US. Students earning money while in the US may have to pay federal and state income taxes. If a student is hired for employment in the U.S., he or she will be required to complete a W-4 form that will determine the amount of taxes withheld.
The ALI holds a workshop every Spring semester regarding Federal non-resident tax information.
