Determining Your Tax Filing Status

Under certain circumstances, an international student or scholar who has nonresident status for immigration purposes may be classified as a resident for tax purposes. It's important to know which is your tax filing status so you will complete the correct tax forms.

Resources to Determine Your Tax Filing Status

You can quickly find out by completing a few questions on GLACIER Tax Prep (GTP). If GLACIER Tax Prep determines that you are a nonresident for tax purposes, you may proceed to use GLACIER Tax Prep to complete the federal (not state) tax forms. GLACIER Tax Prep is not available for international students or scholars who are determined to be residents for tax purposes.

Another resource to determine tax residency is the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
