It is Tax season again! Everyone in the United States, regardless of immigration status, is responsible for completing U.S. tax filing requirements for each year of residence in the United States. Please read carefully the following information regarding tax filing requirements for international students for the 2016 tax year:

  • All International Students who have U.S. source income/ earning must file certain required forms with the IRS. Those who received income subject to withholding must file by April 18, 2017.
  • International Students with NO U.S. source income/ earning MUST STILL FILE a required form as well by June 15, 2017. They do NOT need to file the regular tax return forms. However, they MUST file a form to document their status as nonresident aliens.

The University of Bridgeport Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Clinic is here to assist you and your dependents to file your tax returns for FREE! We have six sessions- February 24, March 3, March 10, March 24, April 7 and April 14 in the Student Center, Private Dining Room from 1:30 pm to 4:00 pm by appointment only. Please go online today at http://www.bridgeport.edu/life/international-student-services/vita-tax-assistance/book-your-appointment/
to book an appointment. All bookings must be made at least 48 hours before the session.
