OIE and Global HR Assist International Students and Scholars with 2014 Taxes

International Students and Scholars: If you were present in the United States for any day between January 1, 2014, and December 31, 2014, then you must file a tax form (Form 8843), even if you did not work/receive payments from a U.S. source. Depending on a number of factors, you may be required to file both federal and state taxes. Both federal and state taxes must be filed byApril 15th, 2015. ISSS and Global HR are ready to help you through the process. Visit the OIE Tax Services and Global Human Resources websites for general tax information, updates, and instructions

Georgia Tech uses a payroll compliance software called Glacier. For those students who have received payment(s) from Georgia Tech, Glacier will help you determine if you are a "nonresident" or "resident" for tax purposes. Students who received GT payment(s): Login to Glacier to determine your tax residency.

Glacier is a separate software from the Sprintax tax prep software. Sprintax is an online tax preparation software tool purchased by ISSS to assist nonresident taxpayers who have received payment(s) to prepare federal tax returns (1040NR or 1040-NR-EZ) and state tax returns. 

If you are determined to be a “nonresident” with no U.S.-earned income or payments, use the OIE Tax Services website to help you complete the Form 8843.
