Are all international students, faculty and staff required to have a tax assessment?

All Foreign Nationals who are employed on campus or who will receive a fellowship, scholarship, and certain payments processed through the University Controller’s office are required to have a tax assessment.

A tax assessment is a review of your tax liability in the United States based on treaties that the US has with other nations. In many cases, you may be exempt from paying some, if not all, US taxes; however, you will not be eligible for these exemptions until you complete your tax assessment.

You should schedule a tax assessment as soon as you know that you are going to:

  1. Be employed on campus, or
  2. Receive a fellowship/scholarship, or
  3. Receive payments from the University Controller’s office

A tax assessment is a requirement of your employment and must be completed prior to you receiving your first paycheck

To schedule your tax assessment, please visit the online scheduler.

SPECIAL NOTE FOR H1B, TN, E-3, or O-1 STATUS

If you are in H1B, TN, E-3, or O-1 status you will need to request an appointment by email at ictquestions@ncsu.edu.
