We are extremely grateful to our volunteers,
David North and Fred Stollnitz, who will be managing the Graduate School Tax
Assistance Program for the eleventh year. David, Fred and their assistants will
act as a resource for graduate students completing their tax returns, but will
not offer individual tax advice. Students are responsible for obtaining their
own professional tax advice, if necessary.
All graduate students
- Tax forms filed for 2011
- Financial information for 2012, such as the last pay stub for the last pay
period of 2012, and all W-2 or 1099 forms received
- Records of any education-related expenses (sometimes helpful)
- Records of charitable donations (if any)
International graduate students must ALSO provide:
- Form 1042-S, which will be sent through U.S. mail to international students
by March 15, 2013
- Form 8843, which is available at
- Last year many international graduate students incorrectly filed Form 1040
(often on the Internet), prior to meeting with representatives from the Graduate
School Tax Assistance Program, and therefore had to file an additional, amended
Form 1040X, as most international students are required to complete Form 1040NR
(or 1040NR-EZ) but NOT Form 1040, 1040-A or 1040-EZ
- Please bring a hand calculator; also a laptop, if it contains tax
- All graduate students should note that David North, Fred Stollnitz, and
their assistants are NOT a resource regarding the acquisition of education-based
assistance programs, such as fellowships and grants, only on the taxation
