Take advantage of this new tax preparation software and other resources from the International Tax Office.

The start of a new year brings U.S. tax filing responsibilities for non-resident alien students and employees, regardless of whether they received income in the United States.

To assist with U.S. tax filing obligations, the Employee Services International Tax Office is offering a variety of helpful resources including Glacier Tax Prep (GTP) software, which replaces the Foreign National Tax Resource, which was discontinued on December 31, 2019.

This new, easy-to-use tool is designed to help nonresidents navigate complex U.S. tax requirements by allowing them to:

  1. Determine their U.S. tax residency status and tax return filing requirement.
  2. Ensure applicable tax treaties are applied.
  3. Determine whether they are due a tax refund or owe additional tax.
  4. Prepare tax return and forms that can be printed, reviewed, signed and mailed.
  5. Get assistance with support requests, an FAQ and research library.

Request your Glacier Tax Prep license on the International Tax webpage. Supplies are limited.
