Filing federal income tax forms is the personal responsibility of each international student and scholar. The University of Texas has designed a Guide as a service to help international students and scholars meet their obligations concerning the filing of federal income tax forms. Please be aware that each student/scholar is ultimately responsible for the accuracy of his/her income tax returns and any resulting penalties or interest.
The information contained on the University of Texas web site has been reviewed by representatives of the Internal Revenue Service and should be adequate to assist most international students and scholars. However it is not a substitute for advice obtained from the Internal Revenue Service or a qualified tax professional. If your visa status has changed in the past year, or you believe you have complicated tax issues, please consult the Internal Revenue Service or a qualified tax professional.
