    留学生报税常识

    留学生报税常识

    又要到了美国一年一度的令美国人头大, 留学生心累的Tax Day。很多留学生初来乍到,常常会对报税感到困惑和不解。因为和中国一条龙的税收服务不一样,美国的税收要自己上报的。但是,这并不意味着你可不报或者乱报。相反税收在美国是相当严肃的事。Benjamin Franklin 说过 There were only two things certain in life, death and taxes. 明白了吧,在美国社会税收和死亡是一个级别的。 它是无孔不入,无法避免的。 好了,接下来小编给你上干货! 解答几个常见的留学生(F1)报税问题,带你理清报税的繁文缛节。 Q1.我是F1,我自己付学费,没有收入,报不报也无所谓吧? No. No. No. 重要的事说三遍。 你当然要报,即使没收收入。 而且报税要趁早。如果你拖到四月中旬,发现表格填错等等,那可就麻烦了。 作为学生,请注意关注学习international student  center的邮件。每一二月的样子,会有邮件提醒国际学生报税,并配有详细解说说明。你只需跟着指导做就好了。 如果有特殊情况,请咨询international student  center,等到准确的回复,而不是盲目听取其他同学的所谓的经验。 Q2.看着好复杂的样子,我到底要怎么报? 因为报税是大事,又很繁琐,所以有些美国人甚至选择报税软件,比如H&R Block等。但是作为留学生来说,收入方式比较单一,其实采用DIY即可。此外UF还提供学生一款免费的保税软件 GTP (Glacier Tax Prep) 可以使用。 情况一:无收入F1 身份 对于没有收入的F1 学生,有两个表格非常重要: Form 8843 和 Form 1040NR/Form 1040NR-EZ 咱们先来说说这个Form 8843     根据计算实际居住天数,F-1身份的留学生除非在美国居留满五年以上,否则F-1身份下的居留天数不算在实际居留天数里。也就是说,在美国居留未满5年的 F-1学生的保税身份属于外国人 (Non-Resident…
