Tax Information

Bates College provides U.S. federal tax filing free of charge to international students every year. By partnering with Sprintax, Bates students have access to many resources, 24/7 support, and easy filing for federal returns. Sprintax is also available to assist students with filing Maine (or other state) taxes for a minimal fee.

All students who are not U.S. citizens are required by U.S. federal law to file taxes or a tax statement each year, regardless of earning any wages.

Dean Reese holds tax filing workshops from February until the filing deadline (usually April 15) every year. Please be on the look out for information from Dean Reese.
