F-1 Student Taxes

Tax Information for Calendar Year 2023

ISSS does not advise students on the U.S. tax filing process or requirements. The information provided here is for general educational purposes only. If you have questions or need assistance regarding your U.S. taxes, please contact a tax professional. 

The U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) provides guidance that non-resident aliens must file an annual tax form. As a non-resident student in the U.S., if you received U.S. income during calendar year 2023, you are required to file a tax return. Note: even if you did not earn income in the U.S. in 2023, you will still need to file Form 8843 to the IRS. Tax forms generally must be filed to the IRS by April 15th of each year. 

If you have tax-related questions or need help filing, one option available is Sprintax Tax Preparation, which offers discounted access to Marymount's international students. Sprintax is a tool designed for non-residents to guide them through the tax preparation process, arrange the necessary documents, and check if a tax refund is due. Additional information about Sprintax can be viewed through their YouTube Videos. Sprintax also offers a free Non-resident Tax webinar. Webinar topics include who must file, tax residency, FICA, state returns, implications of misfiling as well as how to use Sprintax to prepare a compliant tax return.
