Student Tax Classes (1098T tax form) for both US residents and international students

Nhi Huong Huynh, Fiscal Specialist
I received this message from the school and would like to share with you all.
Student Fiscal Services will be offering two different types of tax classes
to students over the next couple of months. We offer separate tax workshops
for U.S. Residents and for International students because of different IRS
requirements for each group.

Tax 101 workshops for U.S. Resident Students:
You’ve received your 1098T tax form! You may have heard that President Obama
included a new education tax credit in the American Recovery and
Reinvestment Act. What’s the connection? Student Fiscal Services is
presenting this workshop to help students understand the information on the
1098T tax form and how it relates to educational tax credits plus tax issues
regarding scholarships, fellowships, stipends and grants. This class is
offered free of charge.
