Tax Assistance for International Students and Scholars

All international students and scholars who were in the U.S. at any time during 2006 must file annual tax returns with the U.S. government.  This filing requirement applies even to those students and scholars who received no income from U.S. sources during the calendar year 2006.

OISS provides Yale’s international community access to a tax preparation software program for non-resident taxpayers called CINTAX.  In mid-February OISS will send by email to all current international students and scholars a password to access CINTAX. Departments receiving questions from international students and scholars about their tax filing obligations can refer them to OISS.  General tax information for non-resident tax filers can be found at
