Federal and State Tax Information
Nonresident students and dependents present in the United States on an F, J, Q, or M visa must file Form 8843 and either Form 1040NR-EZ or Form 1040NR if they had a US source income in the previous year. The due date for filing is April 15 each year.
Indiana University has purchased special software to assist non-resident taxpayers with filing federal tax forms. The software will be available in February. For additional assistance or questions, please contact the local IRS office by phone (574) 236-8149 or in person 100 E Wayne St, South Bend, IN 46601.
US source income includes: wages, tips, scholarships, fellowships, fee remission, certificate of deposit (CD) interest, investment interest, and investment income.
If you were employed in the US, your employer will send you a W-2 form to indicate how much money you were paid for the year and how much money in tax was withheld. You will need this form to file your Federal and state taxes. Some students may also receive a form 1042-S in late February from their University. This form will also be necessary to file taxes.
