Tax Office

Tax season ends

Tax season is over for much of the U.S. If you filed for an extension or are presently out of the U.S., you have additional time to file any needed returns. If you did not receive expected emails from the Tax Office, please email middleburytaxoffice@middlebury.edu. NO TAX ADVICE WILL BE PROVIDED. Assistance is available in determining what forms you should file, how to use the FNTR software and which forms you need to sign and return to the Tax Office to ensure you have available treaty benefits. 



 PLEASE NOTE: Forms 1098T will no longer be issued to nonresident aliens or others for whom an exemption exists. For U.S. citizens and Resident Aliens: Failure to provide a SSN or TIN for the Form 1098T will result in no form being issued. The college is required by law to include the number with any form filed. This information must be filed on a timely basis. The forms was produced in January of each year.


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 middleburytaxoffice@middlebury.edu. 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.

Office Hours: The best way to reach the office is via email at middleburytaxoffice@middlebury.edu  To see somebody at the Tax Office you need to make an appointment via email or telephone.
