Tax Preparation Help

Cornell has teamed up with Sprintax to provide you with easy-to-use tax preparation software designed for nonresident students, scholars, alumni, and their dependents. We encourage you to use the software and direct your tax preparation questions to the Sprintax help team. 

We offer general tax information workshops during tax season. Office of Global Learning staff are not tax specialists. We do not provide individual tax advice.  

We hope these resources will help you during tax season. 

For Residents

Most Cornell international faculty, students, and staff file as “nonresident aliens.” You only become a resident for tax purposes if you get a green card or if you pass what is called the substantial presence test.
