The filing deadline for 2022 taxes is April 18, 2023! Here is some useful information to help you prepare:
Any international student who was present in the United States for any portion of 2022 is required to complete Form 8843 for this tax season. Students who received taxable income may be required to file additional forms as well.
For students who received income from Miami in 2022:
Please wait to file your taxes until you have received your 1042-S and/or accompanying W-2 from the Miami Payroll Office. We expect the W-2 forms to be issued by January 31st and the 1042-S forms to be mailed out by the end of February. It is important that your current mailing address is accurate in Banner Self Service, as that is the address to which the 1042-S forms will be mailed.
The Payroll Office will be providing information about how to access Sprintax (a service to support nonresident employees and students with their US tax obligations) once they have issued the 1042-S forms. Be sure to check your MiamiOH.edu email!
For students who received no income from Miami:
You may still use Sprintax, but will have to pay for each tax form generated by the program. This option may be useful for students who received income from sources outside of Miami via CPT or OPT.
Students whose home countries have a tax treaty with the U.S. may have an 8233 form to sign each calendar year in order to claim a tax treaty benefit. You may contact Holly Neill in Payroll Services with questions.
Do NOT use TurboTax, H&R Block, or other software unless Sprintax indicates that you are a "Resident Alien for Tax Purposes." These companies do not offer the forms that are required for non-resident aliens. Using these companies or their software will cause you to file your taxes incorrectly if you are a non-resident alien.
Miami University staff are not qualified nor allowed to provide individual tax advice, but here are resources you can utilize if you have questions:
