Tax Preparation Software

International Scholars > Taxes > Sprintax and Tax Prep Software

The International Scholars Office (ISchO) has purchased a license for Sprintax for MIT international scholars. Sprintax is an online U.S. tax preparation software product for international students and scholars who are nonresident aliens for U.S. (federal) tax purposes. State tax returns, for Massachusetts or any other state, may also be prepared using Sprintax.

Please Note: The license allows MIT international scholars to prepare their Federal (U.S) tax return at no cost; however, there is a fee for State tax returns. Scholars may also go to the Massachusetts Department of Revenue website and prepare a MA State tax return at no cost.
