Preparing Your Taxes

Annual ISSS Tax Orientation Sessions

At the session, experts will present information about filing your federal and state income taxes, how to use the Glacier Tax preparation software, and a schedule of individual tax clinics where you can get help.

TIMES: 9:00 a.m.-10:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.-2:30 p.m. 
LOCATION: Honeywell Auditorium, Carlson School, Minneapolis, West Bank
Due to limited seating, we recommend attending the morning workshop. The workshops are identical, so you only need to attend one.
Registration is not required, but you can invite your friends to join you through our Facebook Event.

Individual Tax Clinics

Volunteers will be available to help you prepare your non-resident tax returns taxes on a
first-come, first-served basis.

We cannot guarantee you will be seen on a specific night, so it best to arrive as early as possible and to attend one of the early sessions.

TAKE NOTE: Make sure you have complete your Federal tax return using the Glacier Tax preparation software provided by the University of Minnesota. These orientations are only for UMN students and scholars filing non-resident 2015 tax returns. Other UMN students should visit
