Yes, it's tax time, even for international students

By Becky Stephenson, personnel associate, human resources

International students are required to submit income tax forms to the IRS by April 15.

If an international student had ANY income (wages, scholarship monies, interest from bank accounts, etc.) there are forms that are required to be completed and submitted to the IRS.  If an international student had NO income during 2014 from any source they still must file a specific form with the IRS. 

Payroll services is offering four international tax sessions this week, all in 33 Boyd Hall, to help international students complete their taxes:
* Monday, April 6, 8:30-11 a.m.
* Thursday, April 9, 9 a.m.-noon
* Thursday, April 9, 2:30-5 p.m.
* Friday, April 10, 11 a.m.-2 p.m.

Students can bring their laptops to the sessions and all sessions are held on a first-come, first served basis.
