Things You Should Know

If you are an F-1 or J-1 student who had been in the U.S. longer than five years in 2016 or a J-1 scholar who had been in the U.S. longer than two years in 2016, had U.S. income in 2016 and need assistance filing your income tax return, you have a few options:

1) Go to a professional tax preparer. There are many professional tax preparers in Buffalo.

2) Prepare your income tax return at www.myfreetaxes.com/. This website is recommended by both the Internal Revenue Service and New York State Department of Taxation and Finance.

Note: The Office of International Student and Scholar Services staff cannot assist you since we are not trained tax preparers or advisors.
