Federal Tax Help

Individuals who had U.S. income for calendar year 2012 must file a federal income tax return. In addition, F and J visa holders in exempt status must file Form 8843.

Emory University has purchased Foreign National Tax Resource (FNTR) licenses to allow our nonresident international students and scholars to complete their U.S. tax returns (Forms 1040NR or 1040NR-EZ and/or 8843) for the 2012 tax year online at anytime from anywhere in the world!

Be sure you have the following documents and information with you:

Set aside approximately 30 minutes to complete the process; it is much easier to do it all at once than to start and stop repeatedly. Sign in here with your Emory Network ID.

The first time you log on to FNTR you will be asked to register by creating your own user ID along with an access code Emory will provide. Your e-mail address is required solely to contact you if there is a problem while you are using the software. 

FNTR will provide instructions as you go and prepare Form 1040NR or 1040NR-EZ (whichever is appropriate for your circumstances). Form 8843 will be produced for all F and J visa holders and their dependents in exempt status. 

If you need assistance using FNTR click on the Getting Help tab at the tip of the main screen. For specific information relating to the topic on each page or line click the Explain link. 

FNTR provides a wealth of information in addition to preparing your tax returns.  Feel free to explore!
