The International Office is holding three separate ITIN drives to adequately prepare international students and scholars for the rapidly approaching 2017 tax season.
ITIN, or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number, is a taxpayer ID number for international students who are ineligible for a Social Security Number and who do not currently have an employment offer.
ITINs are necessary in order to file a tax return, which is required for those students with scholarships, fellowships, and stipends. Additionally, an ITIN is required for students to receive scholarships, fellowships, and stipends in their second year at UT if they do not have an SSN. ITIN processing generally takes about a month, so it is important to have your ITIN well before the tax filing deadline of April 15!
The international office will be holding three ITIN drives during the Spring 2017 semester:
- January 25, 2017
- February 8, 2017
- February 22, 2017
Time: 2 – 5 pm
Location: International Office
