Tax Season has arrived, and many of you may be anxious to complete your U.S. tax filing process. As in previous years, UCF will be offering free U.S. tax preparation software to all international students who attended the university in the 2016 calendar year.
We strongly urge all international students and scholars not to complete your 2016 tax return until you’ve received of both your 2016 1042-S Form and your W-2 Form, if applicable.
- Only international students/scholars who engaged in employment in 2016 will receive a W-2; these were sent by most employers by 01/31/2017.
- However, international students/scholars who were employed and received treaty benefits will receive the 1042-S Form in addition to the W-2 Form or in lieu of the W-2 Form; these 1042-S Forms will be sent no later than 03/15/2017.
- International students who received a non-qualified scholarship award and who are considered non-resident aliens for tax purposes will also receive a 1042-S Form; these 1042-S Forms will be sent no later than 03/15/2017.
- If you receive a 1098-T Form from UCF, please retain this form for your records. Some international students may not receive a 1098-T Form if not applicable.
Deadline for filing your U.S. tax return is April 18, 2017.
