Tax Information & Resources
The International Offices encourage international students and scholars to become familiar with the U.S. federal and state tax structure. Review the information about Tax Considerations before you arrive in the United States so that you can have a better understanding of your expected income. In the Spring of each year, the International Offices provides free access to tax software to assist with the preparation of your federal nonresident tax return. We also offer a free workshop to assist you with preparing your California state nonresident tax return.
Caltech staff are not trained or qualified to provide any advice regarding tax filing or tax treaty benefits. If you require specific information about your Caltech paycheck with regards to tax treaties and tax withholdings, please contact the Caltech Payroll Department.
