To help you meet your federal tax filing obligations, the OISS has purchased GLACIER tax preparation software (GTP). GTP will first determine your residency status for tax purposes – if it has determined that you are a “resident alien for tax purposes”, you will not be able to continue with the software (as it is designed only for nonresident filers).
Disclaimer: The tax resources offered by the OISS are provided so that Yale international students and scholars can make informed personal decisions concerning their taxes. By choosing to use GLACIER Tax Prep (GTP), the online tax assistance program Yale OISS provides, you acknowledge that Yale University is not liable for any errors and incidental or consequential damages in connection with the program. OISS staff are not trained tax specialists and cannot provide individual advice on taxes. If you need further assistance, you should seek professional tax advice from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) or a qualified accountant or attorney.
