All international students and their dependents must file at least one U.S. tax form for every year they are present in the U.S.
The form you submit depends on whether you received U.S. income, which includes wages, scholarships, housing stipends, cash awards, etc.
|Did You Receive U.S. Income last calendar year?||Required Forms||Deadline|
|Yes, I did earn U.S. income||IRS Form 1040NR-EZ or IRS Form 1040NR AND IRS Form 8843||See IRS Deadlines|
|No, I did NOT earn U.S. income||IRS Form 8843||See IRS Deadlines|
