Get a head start on filing 2022 taxes
Though the deadline for filing 2022 taxes is in April 2023, it's common that international students have many questions about U.S. taxes. So, we wanted to make sure to share Sprintax's series of webinars related to who must file, tax residency, FICA, State returns, implications of misfiling as well as how to use Sprintax to prepare a compliant tax return. There are also sessions about CPT/OPT tax implications.
Winter 2022-2023 Reminders
- If you're planning to Travel Outside the U.S., review the necessary documents and updated requirements for international travel to the U.S.
If you plan to stay in your Residence Hall during a school break, remember to request University Break Housing.
If you plan on traveling outside of Oxford, Hamilton, or Middletown during Winter break, arrange accordingly for your residence hall or off-campus residence (turn off electronics, secure doors and windows, arrange pet care, etc.)
Campus Services offers airport shuttles before and after Winter break
