Here you will be able to find the appropriate information needed for tax filing purposes as it applies to the United States.

Our primary goal is to help with UMass tax compliance obligations. We are also here to assist any foreign national that is receiving payment from UMass and anyone aiding these payments, including students, employees, independent contractors, researchers, and teachers.

UMass provides services that will assist a Nonresident Alien (NRA) for tax purposes with the appropriate U.S. withholding rate. We also will assist you with information regarding tax treaty benefits and will supply the correct tax reporting documents for filing a U.S. tax return.

We hope our Website will help you navigate through a wide range of tax compliance obligations.
