Tax Forms

Filing FEDERAL Income Tax

GLACIER Tax Prep (GTP) will prepare the required tax forms for you:

U.S. Tax Residency Status
Received Income in 2020
Tax Forms
Nonresidence Alien
1040NR/1040NR-EZ, 8843
Nonresidence Alien
Residence Alien
Yes or No
Do NOT use GTP

All nonresident aliens for tax purposes, including F-2 and J-2 visa holders, are required to file Form 8843 even if you had no income from the U.S. in 2020. You do not need to have a Social Security Number (SSN) or an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) to submit Form 8843.

If you are determined a resident alien, you should NOT use GTP to prepare your tax forms. You may use commercially purchased tax return software to file your state and federal income tax. You may also contact the Office for Student Money Management, or visit the IRS website to find free tax return preparation by Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) and Find a VITA Site Near You.

Filing incorrect forms can result in a $100.00 fine plus interest. IRS is gearing up to crack down on the incorrect filing. Beware! The Government can audit the tax return for up to 7 years. You should keep the copy of your tax filing information for at least 7 years.

Filing STATE Income Tax

The State of Kansas offers a user-friendly website KS WebFile for filing Kansas Individual Income Tax Returns.

If you need assistance with State Tax preparation, you may contact the Office for Student Money Management.


The deadline for filing tax return is April 15, 2021.

ALWAYS KEEP A COPY OF THE RETURN FOR YOUR RECORDS. You will need this information when you file your tax next year. Also, if the government has any question about your return, it is always good to have a copy. It costs you money if you request a copy of the return from the government.
