U.S. International Revenue Service (IRS) Tax Form Requirements 

All international students who were present in the U.S. on an F-1 or J-1 visa for any period of time during 2023 are required to file tax forms even if you did not work in the U.S. during 2023.

DEADLINE: April 15, 2024

If you did NOT work in the U.S., you will not pay any taxes, but you need to file an IRS form called Form 8843.  After you fill out the form, print it out and sign. Mail it to: The Department of the Treasury, Internal Revenue Service Center, Austin, TX 73301-0215. 8843 Instructions

If you did work in the U.S., you must submit a tax return. You may be owed a tax refund or owe a tax payment, depending on how much you earned and how much you have already paid for taxes. Refer to the instructions below.

HOW TO FILE YOUR TAX RETURN (if you worked during 2023)

Click "Display". If you did not opt to receive the electronic W2, it will be mailed to the address you have in the campus portal.

Step 2. Create a Sprintax account to get started. 

Step 3. Fill out the required questions for 2023.

Sept 4. Enter your discount access code: SBCC50F23 in the box on the ‘Review your order’ page. Available to the first 50 students who file!
