The Tax Office will hold hours on Thursday afternoon at Carr Hall, for APPOINTMENTS only. If there are no appointments scheduled the Tax Manager will not be at Carr. Please plan ahead and contact the office if you need assistance.
The Tax Office provides guidance to the College community on tax questions. The Tax 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 determines how you are taxed. U.S. Citizens, resident aliens, and nonresident aliens are taxed differently.
Middlebury uses the FNIS system, a nonresident alien tax compliance software, to help determine your tax status while you are in school in the U.S. and whether or not a tax treaty covers the types of payments made to you as a student, faculty or guest speaker.
The office also maintains a tax software to comply with foreign national taxation and provide internationals with tools to file their federal and state income tax returns. However, we cannot and will not prepare your tax returns.
Please consult the sidebar to learn more about specific tax topics.
Please do not disregard emails from the firstname.lastname@example.org. Many of these emails require a prompt response and your failure to respond can affect the tax treatment on payments made to you by the College. The email address was recently updated to offer ease of identification for those receiving emails.
