Tax Time! 2014 Tax Seminars

Posted By: Marissa Kathryn Russo    Published: Tuesday, 04 Feb 2014
Dear MSU international students and scholars:

Did you earn income in the US during the calendar year 2013? If so, the US government requires you to file income tax statements no later than April 15, 2014. You will soon receive (or may have already received) W-2 income statements from your employer to use during the tax filing process.

Filing taxes is not the same as paying taxes; you may even receive money back from the government when you file taxes. The goal of tax filing is to determine if you have paid the correct amount of tax.

The MSU College of Law Tax Clinic will hold interactive seminars for international students and scholars to assist you in preparing your federal and Michigan income tax returns using GLACIER, a web-based tax return preparation system. At the end of the instructional course, participants will have prepared their own returns and they will be ready for filing.

YOU MUST REGISTER ONLINE in order to attend a tax seminar. Only registered attendees will be allowed to enter the seminar rooms.

YOU MUST BRING A LAPTOP in order to attend a tax seminar. Attendees without a laptop will not be allowed to enter seminar rooms. Please note that tablets and smart phones are insufficient.

REGISTER FOR A SEMINAR ON OR AFTER FEBRUARY 1ST. To register, visit the MSU College of Law Tax Clinic website athttp://www.law.msu.edu/clinics/tax/seminarsOpens in new window. You will first determine your tax filing status (i.e. whether you should attend a NONRESIDENT or RESIDENT session). You will then choose a session and obtain a list of documents required to complete your 2013 tax filings.
