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.
Because of legal restrictions on our capacity to advise you about tax liabilities, the Immigration Services Office is not able to advise individuals with regard to their personal income tax situation nor can we provide guidance or respond to questions concerning federal tax withholding and reporting of payments made to individuals who are neither U.S. citizens nor U.S. permanent residents.
