If students have filed incorrect tax forms, OIS strongly encourages them to use the services of either a Certified Public Accountant (CPA), tax attorney or licensed tax firm to correct their tax filing and return any reimbursements they were not eligible for. These services will incur a charge and students can contact them for estimates.
Please understand that when submitting any tax forms to the U.S. government, you are making a legal and recorded statement of status and eligibility which must be correct. False filings can seriously impact future immigration eligibility and status.
Please note that amended returns should be filed as soon as possible to avoid any penalties. Neither OIS nor Glacier Tax Prep can assist students with filing an amended return.
Resource for filing the amended return (Form 1040X):

Non-residents cannot E-file (electronically file) tax forms but will need to print, fill out and mail them as hard copies to the federal and state governments.
