Attention International Students and Employees

WVU Tax Services and International Students and Scholars Services is pleased to announce that the tax preparation software Glacier Tax Prep will be available again this year for our international students and employees to aid in the filing of your federal tax return for the 2018 tax season.  WVU provides this service free to our international students and employees. 

Forms 1042-S issued to Foreign Nationals who have either received a tax treaty benefit or were subject to Alien tax (ATAX) have been issued by Tax Services and were mailed on February 14, 2019.  Forms W-2 were mailed on January 23, 2019.  If you are a Non-Resident Alien (NRA) for income tax purposes a Form 1098-T will not be issued as per IRS guidelines.
