All international students and scholars who were in the U.S. at any time during 2007 must file a U.S. tax return. This filing requirement applies even to those students and scholars who received no income from U.S. sources during calendar year 2007.
OISS provides Yale’s international community access to a tax preparation software program for non-resident taxpayers called CINTAX. In early-February, OISS sent emails to all current international students and scholars with a password to CINTAX and general information about their tax filing obligations. Departments receiving questions from international students and scholars about their tax filing obligations can refer them to OISS.
If your department employs international scholars and you would like to learn about the complexities of the H-1B Visa process, you can attend an OISS-sponsored workshop Thursday, March 27, 9 - 10:30 a.m. at the International Center, 421 Temple Street. To sign up, send an email to Janice.email@example.com. If you’re coming from the Medical School, the Yale Shuttle service stops directly across the street from OISS, in front of Helen Hadley Hall. There is no fee for the workshop.
OISS invites you to take part in our exciting volunteer opportunities. Community Friends matches international students with local “hosts” to provide an introduction to U.S. culture and to the New Haven area. One-on-One Conversations matches international students, scholars, and their spouses/partners with volunteers for language and culture exchange. Please call (203) 432-2305 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
