Income Tax Information and Links
The UT Office of International Affairs is neither qualified nor permitted to give individual tax advice. Students with complicated tax situations may wish to consult with a tax preparation service, professional tax accountant, or tax attorney who is knowledgeable about nonresident tax law.
However, we have created a page with general income tax information that you may find useful:
Also, the sites and links below contain information that may be helpful in answering some additional tax questions.

The State University of New York (SUNY) Office of International Student and Scholar Services maintains a website that is a good source of general income tax information for international students. (In fact, some of the material in this section on our websitecomes courtesy of their site, for which we are very grateful.)
Take note that some of the information, however, applies only to SUNY International students and residents of the state of New York.
The University of Texas at Austin also maintains a "Self Help Tax Website" with useful information. Likewise, some of these pages may be relevant only to University of Texas students and residents of the state of Texas.
