The University of Massachusetts Medical School applies specific federal tax withholding and reporting rules to payments made to international students and employees, in accordance with U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) requirements.
Immigration Services provides guidance and responds to questions concerning federal tax withholding and reporting of payments made to individuals who are neither U.S. citizens nor U.S. permanent residents. We also determine residency status for tax purposes and the proper federal income tax and FICA withholding for students and employees. In addition, Immigration Services reviews and processes tax treaty exemption forms, if applicable. Because of legal restrictions on our capacity to advise you about tax liabilities, Immigration Services is not able to advise individuals with regard to their personal income tax situation.
