As non-residents of the U.S., F-1 and J-1 international students are legally required to file a tax return and/or a Form 8843 with the U.S. government for every year that you are physically present in the U.S. Even if you did not work or receive income in the U.S., you are still required to submit a Form 8843.
The Center for Global Education provides access to Sprintax for all F-1 and J-1 students. Sprintax is an online non-resident tax preparation system that helps international students prepare federal and state taxes. Contact the Center for Global Education about availability of FREE or DISCOUNTED access codes that you can purchase through the CGE.
