Income Tax Form Help

Getting assisting with your federal and state tax forms

In previous years, PSU has made arrangements with FOCUS to schedule help sessions to assist PSU international students with their tax forms.  This is changing this year.

For the 2016 tax year (for reporting income and taxes for Jan 1 - Dec 31, 2016), Portland State University's Office of International Student and Scholar Services (OISSS) has arranged for PSU international students and scholars to use an online tax form preparation service called Sprintax . 

Because of the change there will be no FOCUS tax workshops to assist you with your forms. If you are a PSU international student or scholar, you can use Sprintax for free for your federal return. See PSU's Tax Page for International Students and Scholars for more information.
