International Tax Status Analysis

International employees (student or faculty/staff) must set up an appointment with the Payroll Office for a Tax Status Analysis. This is necessary for the Payroll Office to appropriately withhold taxes from your wages. If you do not make an appointment and complete the Tax Status Analysis, you will be taxed at the highest rate. It is imperative for International employees to bring all of their immigration documentation with them to the Tax Status Analysis appointment. To set up an appointment please contact Dot Letourneau at dletourn@bates.edu or at (207) 786-6173.
