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

The Office of International Services provides members of the UIC international community with discounted access to Sprintax as an option for meeting the tax filing responsibilities required of visa holders in the U.S. With a Sprintax account, you can access an expansive online tax education library, receive help filling out tax forms, and file your federal tax return for free and your state return (if needed) for an additional cost.

Access Sprintax Tax Prep Software

Please note that an active UIC NetID is required to access the above link. Members of the UIC international community without an active NetID (certain J-1 EV Scholars and alumni on approved periods of practical training) should refer to the email sent by OIS or reach out to us at

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.
