  • ex-F1 student filing tax return from abroad...

    Guys,

    A fr of mine was an F1 student and worked legally with the school in 2003. It's the time of the year to file tax return but he's not in the US now (he left US immediately after graduation). There're the services from www.taxfreedom.com and turbotax.com that he can use to file tax return.

    His question is : Can he file tax return when he's physically NOT in the US ? Is it legally to do so ? If not, what can he do to properly file 2003 tax return ?

    Thanks,

      does he plan to come back to the states? If not, he doesn't have to file taxes here. Otherwise, he can just download 1040NR or 1040 form from irs.gov, fill it out and mail it in. He does have to have his W-2, 1099 and 1098 forms.

      You don't have to have turbotax or any other program for that, it is pretty straightforward.

      If F-1 student has been in the country for more than 5 years, he can file as a resident (1040 form), if not - he has to file 1040NR or 1040NR EZ.
