Taxes 101

taxes 101


Did you generate income in 2021? If your answer is “yes,” you will likely need to file an income tax return by April 18. And to help you with the process, representatives from Global Human Resources, the Bursar’s Office, and the Office of Graduate Studies have teamed up to cover the dos and don’ts of filing your taxes. The virtual workshop will be held on Feb. 11 from 3-4 p.m. Are you a resident or non-resident international student?  Are you a U.S. citizen? This workshop is for you.

Please note: None of the presenters at this session are tax professionals. We are not able to provide specific tax advice to you given your particular filing needs. The purpose of the session is to explain how graduate students typically file taxes and the resources provided by Georgia Tech to help you do so. We will not answer specific questions in advance of the session as we will cover most of the common questions during the session. More info:
