International students in the US must file yearly tax forms while they are in the country. Some must be filed by all students, while others need only be filed by those students who have received US income. Submitting these forms is necessary by the terms of US student visas.
There are organizations that can help you determine which forms you must file and whether you will receive a return. These organizations include the International Student Taxes Organization. There may be a fee for this assistance.
Some states add a sales tax to goods and services. Which goods and services are taxed, and how much, will change from state to state. For example, some states tax most goods, but do not tax food. Other states may waive the tax for people under or over a certain age. Students may wish to check what sales taxes apply in the state they will be living in.
