The deadline to file your individual tax return was April 15, but you can still file your return after the deadline. The Glacier Tax Prep system will be available to use until December 1, 2019 so you can log on and complete your tax forms anytime until that date. If you do not owe taxes or you are expecting a refund, there is no penalty for filing late. If it is determined by the Glacier system that you owe taxes, you should file now to limit the interest charge and late payment penalty.
All international students and scholars who were in the U.S. in any visa type other than B (visitor) visa for any period of time during the calendar year 2018 must file 2018 income tax documents with the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS). There is at least one form that you must file regardless of whether or not you earned income in 2018. The deadline for filing taxes is April 15, 2019. You should prepare NOW in these important ways:
