U.S. Taxes

Each UIC international student, scholar, and employee present in the U.S. during calendar year 2022 must file at least one tax document with the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) in order to meet their tax filing obligation and properly maintain immigration status. Individuals who earned U.S.-based income must file additional documentation.

The general deadline for federal and Illinois state 2022 tax filings is Tuesday, April 18, 2023. If you have earned income in a state other than Illinois, please confirm your filing deadline for each state.

While the Office of International Services cannot directly advise individuals on their specific tax filing obligations, the office has organized two valuable resources for the UIC international community:

Non-Resident Tax Preparation Software Heading link

Each year, OIS typically provides the UIC international community with discounted access to Sprintax, a specialized non-resident tax preparation software. Details regarding Sprintax access for 2022 tax filings will become available in early spring 2023.

U.S. Tax Webinars for the UIC International Community Heading link

During this online webinar, a local tax professional will provide an overview of non-immigrant tax responsibilities and filing requirements. Please note that this session is general in focus and not intended to provide one-on-one tax preparation services or advice nor will it cover how to use the Sprintax tax preparation software. The webinars are open to UIC international students, exchange visitors, employees, and alumni on authorized periods of practical training.
