International students and visiting scholars who were physically present in the U.S. under an F, J, M or Q visa during the 2020 calendar year are required by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS), along with potential state tax returns, to complete and submit a tax return. In general, your tax return must be submitted by April 15 following the end of the calendar year.

The International Student and Scholar Services Office (ISSS) has teamed up with Sprintax to provide you with an easy-to-use tax preparation software designed for students and scholars considered nonresident aliens for tax purposes in the US.  Currently, Sprintax is offering free tax webinars for Illinois State University students and scholars.
