Filing Your Tax Returns

Payments made to a nonresident alien must be reported to the IRS. They are issued to nonresidents annually who receive one or all of the following:

  • Independent payments
  • Compensation that is treaty-exempt
  • Non-qualified fellowship/scholarship payments

The Drexel Office of Tax Compliance is NOT permitted to provide tax services. If you are in need of tax advice, please consult a tax professional.

In February, the Office of Tax Compliance will mail your Form 1042-S or send an email notification (according to the method you selected on how to retrieve your electronic Form 1042-S in Glacier™).
