FNTR is a software program that assists foreign nationals in determining their residency status for tax purposes.
Please review this information about FNTR before signing in here with your Emory network ID. After logging in and completing the information requested, FNTR will tell you whether you are a resident or a non-resident for tax purposes.
For tax purposes, U.S. residents and non-U.S. residents are taxed differently, so it is important for you to determine your residency status. Non-U.S. residents are only taxed for income acquired during their stay in the U.S.
You may use FNTR to determine your residency status.
No. However, there are several other resources available to you.
If you earned less than $49,000, the Atlanta Prosperity Project has free resources available to assist you in completing your federal and state tax forms.
After signing in to FNTR, you will be directed to the FNTR Gateway page (within the Finance Division’s website). At the top of this page you will find the access code. The code will be capitalized and in bold. Please make note of this number or be prepared to copy and paste it on the registration page.
After you have read all the instructions on the FNTR Gateway page, click on the Windstar logo located on the FNTR Gateway page.
Once on the Windstar page, click on the icon that reads “New Users? Click Registration to Sign Up”, if you are a new user. This icon is located on the top right of the page. Use the access code you were provided to register.
Emory alumni need to contact Mary Chenault to request access to FNTR. She will give you a direct link to FNTR and a special access code.

If you earned income in the United States between January 1, 2012 and December 31, 2012, you must file a 2012 federal income tax return and a Georgia income tax return.
Your return must be completed and postmarked by April 15, 2013. If you are currently abroad or received no U.S. income in 2012, the deadline for you is (postmarked by) June 15, 2013.
Non-residents for tax purposes do not have to complete an actual tax return (1040 NR, etc.), but you must complete form 8843.
If you are using FNTR, it will ask if you want to also print out an 8843 for each F-2 or J-2 family member. Alternatively, you and/or your dependents may complete form 8843 on your own.
For tax filing purposes, your dependents are your spouse and children in dependent status (F-2 or J-2). If you are in J-2 status and were employed in 2012, you should use FNTR to prepare your federal tax return if you are a non-resident for tax purposes.
Dependents must also complete form 8843. For tax filing purposes, your dependents are your spouse and children in dependent status (F-2 or J-2). If you are in J-2 status and were employed in 2012, you should use FNTR to prepare your federal tax return if you are a non-resident for tax purposes.
If you did not receive your W-2, contact the payroll office at 404.727.6100.
If you had treaty benefits or taxable non-work financial income in 2012, then you should receive a 1042S. If you still are uncertain whether or not you should receive a 1042S, please email Mary Chenault, Emory’s non-resident alien tax specialist.
If you know that you should have received form 1042S but have not, please email Mary Chenault, Emory’s non-resident alien tax specialist.
