Tax Forms Commonly Used by International Students and Scholars

Amended/Prior Year Tax Appointments

ISSS is unable to assist with amended taxes and have limited support for prior year tax returns.

Nonresident aliens for tax purposes who have failed to file a prior year tax return may have options on GLACIER Tax Prep or Sprintax. You will be able to access blank tax forms to fill out on your own or purchase access to GLACIER Tax Prep or Sprintax prior year software to help fill out the forms.
