Filing Your Taxes: 2017

Overview

The International Services Office (ISO) helps our international population with annual tax reporting. We’ve also compiled useful information on:

 

Who Should File a Tax Return?

If you were NOT physically present in the United States during the 2017 calendar year, you do NOT have to file tax forms at this time. If you were physically present, even for one day, you will need to determine your tax reporting obligations. This will be based on your tax residency category and US earnings during the year.

If you earned US income during the 2017 calendar year, you should receive summary statements from the relevant employers, financial institutions, etc. Collect these documents to use when you prepare your return.
