Tax Workshops

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak in the United States and the resulting meeting restrictions in place at Vanderbilt, the in-person ITO tax workshops for this tax season have been cancelled. The IRS has moved the filing deadline to July 15, 2020

 A step-by-step tutorial for navigating GTP is available at this link:

Glacier Tax Prep is an extremely simple program to navigate.  Please contact the ITO if you are having difficulty navigating GTP.  We cannot provide you with tax advice or complete GTP for you. Please have your passport, visa, I-20 or DS-2019 available to refer to while you are completing your tax return in GTP.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us by e-mail at


The annual tax filing season has begun. For international persons who will receive a Form 1042-S, the tax filing season begins when your 1042-S is received.  You will receive separate emails regarding the availability of the 1042-S and when GLACIER Tax Prep will be made available.

2019 tax return information must be postmarked by July 15, 2020.

The 2019 tax year filing deadline has been extended to July 15, 2020.

If you have also received a W-2 and/or a W2C, and other earnings statements (including Form 1042S), remember to combine ALL earning statements for 2019 when filing your tax return.

All nonresident aliens who have U.S. income in 2019 are required to file tax returns.  The personal exemption was eliminated in the Tax Reform Bill of 2018.  If you did not earn money or have scholarship income in 2019, you can use GTP to prepare your Form 8843. 

As in previous years, Vanderbilt has purchased tax preparation software for your use.  The software is available free of charge to all Vanderbilt employees, students, and scholars who are considered nonresident alien for U.S. tax purposes in order to assist with tax return preparation. You can access the software through your GLACIER account,  The software is not available to those who are Resident Alien for U.S. Tax Purposes, a Lawful Permanent Resident, or a U.S. Citizen.
