The Tax Office provides guidance to the College community on tax questions. However, the primary purpose of the office is to serve as withholding agent and compliance officer for the college itself. The office has developed resources to help College departments as well as College students, faculty, staff, visitors, and vendors to be in compliance with U.S. and international tax laws and regulations.

Here you will find general information about tax reporting, exemptions, and educational tax credits. Your residency status, as well as your visa, determine how you are taxed. No treaty benefits can be applied without a Social Security Number (U.S.). U.S. citizens, resident aliens, and nonresident aliens are taxed differently. Each person is evaluated as the individual they are, taking into consideration their home tax nation, status as a visitor, visa and other factors.

Middlebury uses the Foreign National Information System or FNIS, a nonresident alien tax compliance software, to help determine your tax status while you are present in the U.S. 

The office also maintains a tax preparation software to provide internationals with tools to file their federal and state income tax returns. However, we cannot and will not prepare your tax returns. (The software is available for the tax year 2016).
