Tax Prep Software

Payments made to a nonresident alien must be reported to the IRS. This is done annually for nonresident aliens who received one or all of the following:

  • Independent compensation (e.g. honoraria, speaker fees, consulting)
  • Dependent compensation (e.g. salary and wages)
  • Non-qualified fellowship/scholarship payments

By the end of February, the Office of Tax Compliance will mail your Form 1042-S or make it available electronically through GLACIER™ (according to the method that you selected in GLACIER™).

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