Tax Form Deadline Information for F-1 and J-1 Students and Scholars

Nonresidents for tax purposes have two deadlines, April 18 and June 15, depending on their circumstances.  Review the deadlines section of Non-Residents for Tax Purposes to see which deadline applies to you.  Tax residents have only one deadline, April 18, 2017.  If you will not be able to mail (or, for tax residents, e-file) your tax form by your deadline, you can extend your deadline to file your form, but you must still pay any taxes you owe by the deadline. 

Executive Order on Immigration: Information and Resources

On March 6, 2017, President Trump signed a new executive order entitled "Protecting the Nation from Terrorist Entry into the United States”, which revokes and replaces Executive Order 13769, issued on January 27, 2017.  The new order includes a revised 90-day entry ban on nationals of six countries - Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen – and is effective on March 16, 2017. Please refer to this page for clarifications as additional information becomes available, for updates on important and relevant changes, for information on how this order affects U-M’s international students, scholars, faculty and staff, and for Executive Order resources.
