Nonresidents working in the U.S.
Nonresidents who came for example on Summer Work and Travel program or as Interns and worked in the U.S. are required to file a U.S. tax return if they earned wages exceeding the U.S. Personal Exemption amount of $4,050 for 2017 which remains the same as for tax year 2016. Even if their earnings did not exceed the filing threshold, they may still want to file a return in order to claim refund for the taxes withheld. Depending on the State of employment, there may also be a State tax filing requirement.
If you have earned wages last year, you may be required to file a return. Furthermore, some of the federal and State tax that was taken from your wages may be Refundable. We would be happy to discuss your individual situation and offer our help.
