Tax Assistance

Tax Assistance Program

Notre Dame/Saint Mary’s College Tax Assistance Program (TAP) offers free tax return preparation services to international visitors. All international visitors in F-1 or J-1 status MUST file tax documents, even if they earned no income.

While TAP appointments are no longer available for Tax Year 2017, information can always be found on the TAP website. You can also contact the program coordinators year round via email taptax@nd.edu or call at 574.631.6142 or 574.631.1197.

We strongly encourage all international visitors to use the TAP’s services. We also caution everyone against either using electronic tax preparation software, such as TurboTax, or commercial tax preparation services. Most software and commercial services are not familiar with tax provisions as they apply to international visitors, and severe financial and immigration issues may result from using them.

Any international student or scholar who was a member of the university community for at least one semester, but has departed, is also eligible for tax assistance services. We offer these services primarily by email.
