U.S. Tax Information

International students and scholars physically present in the United States for any part of 2019 are legally required to file tax documentation by April 15, 2020. This is true regardless of whether or not the individual received any income in 2019. Please note that the state of North Carolina and the federal government extended the filing deadline to July 15, 2020 due to COVID-19. However, not all states have extended their deadlines.

To help you with your tax filing responsibilities, OIS has arranged free access to Sprintax Tax Preparation software. Sprintax will guide individuals through the tax preparation process, arrange the necessary tax forms, and check to see if they owe taxes or are due a tax refund. Our office has also arranged a free webinar that explains your tax filing responsibilities in more detail. International students and scholars may access the webinar and request an access code to the Sprintax software here.

NOTE: Access to the Sprintax software through NC State has expired as the tax filing season as ended. If an international student or scholar needs to file late or file an amended tax return, they may pay for the Sprintax software directly on their website.
