Please Note: We are currently preparing our information for the 2017 tax season. We will post new information when it is available, and we will announce the ISSS Tax Orientation and Tax Clinic schedule in the ISSS Weekly Update.


All international students and scholars can use GLACIER TAX PREP to file non-resident tax returns. Glacier is a completely free and secure tool designed to:

  • Help non-residents determine if they need to file taxes
  • Calculate an individual's tax liability, based on information entered
  • Complete the necessary federal forms so they can be printed, signed, and mailed.
  • Submit amendments, late filings, or file corrections for the 2016 tax year, if necessary

ISSS has also arranged several Tax Orientation and Clinics throughout February, March, and early April. At these sessions,you can learn how to use the GLACIER tool and receive individual assistance.
