ALL international students on F-1 visas MUST FILE a TAX FORM 8843 even if you did not earn any money.
If you earned any money in the US in 2014, then you must also file another tax form, a 1040NR or 1040NREZ. If you have any questions about your taxes, please attend one of our Tax Workshops.
(Please bring your passport and W-2 tax forms and arrive at the start of the workshop)
Federal and State (Massachusetts) Tax Forms are available at the CIE and will be available at the workshops.

Are you graduating in December or May? Do you need information about how to apply for Optional Practical Training (OPT)? Do you want to incorporate Curriculum Practical Training (CPT) into your academic plan?
WHAT IS OPTIONAL PRACTICAL TRAINING?
OPT is a benefit of F-1 immigration status that permits up to 12 months of off-campus employment for the purpose of gaining practical experience in your chosen field. While you may work for any employer in the United States, the job duties must be directly related to your major area of study and commensurate with your educational level.
