GTP Assistance Eligibility Form

We are pleased to announce the return of our GLACIER Tax Prep Assistant for the 2018 tax season!
This is an opportunity to get individual assistance in navigating the GLACIER Tax Prep (GTP) software and understanding the Federal and State tax forms that you may need to file for income earned in 2018. Please complete the form below in order to determine eligibility for GTP Assistance. 

Appointments with our GTP Assistant are available from February 11 to April 19 during most weekday afternoons; some extended hours may also be available. We offer 30-minute and 60-minute appointments based on your individual tax situation, most appointments are held at our College Town location (40 Celebration Drive - Suite 1.100), but some will also be scheduled downtown at the Eastman School of Music (ESM 506). For more information and directions to ISO locations please review our Location & Directions details. 

Eligibility & Cost

These appointments are offered to most ISO-sponsored F-1 and J-1 visa holders who are Non-Resident Aliens for tax purposes and who earned income in the US in 2018. The GLACIER tax compliance system will help to determine and individual's tax category (Non-Resident Alien vs. Resident Alien) and the GTP companion software can be used to prepare required non-resident income tax forms each spring. ISO will use the information submitted below to assess and prioritize appointment scheduling. Due to limited availability, appointments with the GTP Assistant will be targeted for international students and scholars who have more complicated tax reporting needs. Additional resources and tools for routine filing needs will be made available for those who do not obtain an appointment. Please note: Nonimmigrants who are not eligible to use GTP or are not under UR immigration sponsorship will not be permitted to schedule an appointment. For information on other resources in the community, please visit our guidance for Preparing Your Tax Return.

To be scheduled for an appointment with the GTP Assistant, you must complete the form below to determine eligibility based on your 2018 income and tax residency category. After submitting the eligibility form, ISO Staff will review the information that you have provided and contact you with additional resources and instructions. If you are eligible to book an appointment, you will receive access to a scheduling tool to select an appointment time that suits your schedule.  Please do NOT book multiple appointments or attempt to schedule an appointment without submitting the Eligibility Form below; such submissions will be rejected.

There is no fee to F-1 and J-1 students; J-1 scholars will be charged $20 (payment instructions will be sent to you via e-mail). If you have questions about this policy, please contact us at tax@iso.rochester.edu.
