2006 Tax Treaty Applications

Treaty exemptions are granted on a calendar year basis to eligible international students/scholars working for the University and therefore must be renewed each January, preferably before the cutoff date for the first payroll of the year. Please advise all monthly-paid individuals working for the University who believe they are entitled to an exemption from taxes to report to the Corporate Tax Office. These individuals must bring proper identification to confirm their eligibility and sign the appropriate Tax Treaty documents for the 2006 tax year. They should also bring any immigration documents which have not previously been turned in to the Tax Department.  Please note that we are unable to provide treaty benefits to weekly-paid individuals.     

In order to meet the deadline for the January 2006 payroll, they must visit the Tax Office by Thursday, January 19, 2006. If they do not meet the January deadline they may still apply for the exemption, however the treaty benefits will not take affect until February.

 Also, recently announced a new IRS W-4 policy for Non-Resident Aliens (Almanac December 13, 2005). All individuals who visit the Corporate Tax Office for treaty benefits will be evaluated and requested to sign the new W-4 if applicable.
